They Say that in the Army

Marching Cadence

They say that in the Army, the chicken’s mighty fine
One jumped off the table and started marking time

Oh Lord I wanna go
But they won’t let me go home (stomp)

They say that in the Army, the coffee’s mighty fine
It looks like muddy water, and tastes like turpentine

They say that in the Army, the biscuits are mighty fine
One rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine

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 bed’s are mighty fine
But how the hell would I know, I’ve never slept in mine

They say the in the Army, the mail is so great
Today I got a letter dates 1948

They say that in the Army, the hours are just right
Start early in the morning and work on through the night

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 coffee’s mighty fine
It’s good for cuts and bruises and tastes like iodine

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 tents are waterproof
You wake up in the morning and you’re floating on the roof
