8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
First Verse:
Marianne, oh, Marianne, why won't you come with me?
We can have a bamboo hut and brandy in the tea.
Leave your fat old mama home; she never will say yes.
If mama don't know now, she can guess.

Second Verse:
When she walks along the shore, people pause to greet,
White birds fly around her;  little fish come to her feet.
In her heart is love, but I'm the only mortal man,
Who's allowed to kiss my Marianne.
All day, all night, Marianne,
Down by the seaside sifting sand.
Even little children love Marianne,
Down by the seaside sifting sand.
Arranged by Jim Bottorff
