This is the Army, Mister Jones

A bunch of frightened rookies were list'ning filled with awe,
They listened while a sergeant was laying down the law,
They stood there at attention, their faces turning red,
The sergeant looked them over and this is what he said:
 
This is the Army, Mister Jones,
No private rooms or telephones,
You have your breakfast in bed before —
But you won't have it there anymore.
 
This is the Army, Mister Green,
We like the barracks nice and clean,
You had a housemade to clean your floor —
But she won't help you out anymore.
 
Do what the buglers command —
They're in the Army and not in a band!
 
This is the Army, Mister Brown,
You and your baby went to town,
She had you worried but this is war —
And she won't worry you anymore!
 
1942.
 
Thanks!
