Tune of the Day: The Grenadier

arranged for two flutes

This tune was composed by English poet, dramatist and songwriter Thomas Haynes Bayly.

Cried William when just come from sea,
“Does any one know my Annette?
Oh! say is she faithful to me?
Alas! 'tis so long since we met!”
“Yes, yes,” an old gossip replies,
“We all know her very well here,
She has red lip and bonny black eyes
And she lives with her own granny dear.”
“Grenadier! did you say? did you say grenadier?”
“Yes, yes,” the old gossip replied,
“She lives with her own granny, dear.”
Oh, dear! oh, dear!

The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
