VERSE 01: By the banks of the Seine,/With girls so beautiful,/It gives one pain to remain,/Quite dutiful./And yet I’ve sworn by the stars above,/Throughout my life to reserve my love/For a girl by the Saskatchewan,/For a girl by the Saskatchewan;/But the girls by the Seine/All come canoodling,/They’re bold and vain,/With a taste for snoodling,/Their lips are red, and their eyes are bright,/And they’ve got a style that removes from sigh,/A girl by the Saskatchewan,/Yes, a girl by the Saskatchewan./Flow, river, flow/Down to the sea,/Bright sea, bring my loved one home to me./True, dear one, true,/I’m trying hard to be,/But hear me say/It’s a very long, long way,/From the banks of the Seine/For a girl to go and stay,/By the banks of the Saskatchewan.
VERSE 02: When you live by the Seinge,/You suffer awfully,If you refrain from enjoying,/Quite lawfully./The sweet, gay life in a gay, sweet way,/And save your love till you’re old and grey,/For a girl by the Saskatchewan,/For a girl by the Saskatchewan;/On the banks of the Seine/There’s love awaiting you,/To quell the pain,/That’s exasperating you,/So skip with joy as you laugh,/Ha, ha!/And wire a quick little cool/Ta, ta!/To the girl on the Saskatchewan,/To the girl by the Saskatchewan./Come, faithful one,/Come stray with me,/This is springtime up in a gay Paree./You need a rest, from your fidelity,/For hear me say/It’s a very wrong, wrong way,/When you live on the Seine/To sit grieving all day,/For a girl on the Saskatchewan.
