Life in the Army


(Folk song)

1. The biscuits in the army they say are mighty fine,
But one rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine.

Oh I have had enough of army life.
Gee Ma, I wanna go,
Hey Ma, I gotta go,
Gee Ma, I wanna go home!

2. The coffee in the army they say is mighty fine,
It looks like mud and water and tastes like iodine. Refrain

3. The chicken in the army they say is mighty fine,
But once two drumsticks got up and started beating time. Refrain
