They Say That in the Army…

They say that in the Army the coffee’s mighty fine
It looks like muddy water and tastes like turpentine
(Chorus) Oh Lord I want to go
But they won’t let me go
Hooooooooommmme! Hey
 
They say that in the Army the chow is mighty fine
A chicken jumped off the table and started marking time
 
They say that in the Army the pay is might fine
They give you a hundred dollars and take back
ninety-nine
 
They say that in the Army the food is might fine
A roll rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine
 
They say that in the Army the women are mighty fine
They look like Kruger and walk like Frankenstein
 
They say that in the Army the coffee is might fine
It’s good for cuts and bruises and tastes like iodine
 
They say that in the Army the buses are mighty fine
One went round the corner and left three wheels behind
 
They say that in the Army the toilets are mighty fine
You flush them up at seven they come back up at nine
 
They say that in the Army the hours are just right
Start early in the morning and work all
through the night
 
They say that in the Army the meat is mighty fine
Last night we had ten puppies, this morning only nine
 
They say that in the Army the shoes are mighty fine
You ask for size eleven they give you size nine
 
They say that in the Army the pancakes are mighty fine
You can try to chew them but you’re only wasting time
 
They say that in the Army the beds are mighty fine
But how the hell should I know I’ve never slept in mine
 
They say that in the Army the mail is so great
Today I got a letter dated 1948
