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 wanna go 

But they won't let me go 

Oh Lord, I wanna go hoo-hoo-hoooome EH! 

They say that in the Army the chow is mighty fine 

a chicken jumped off the table and started marking time 


Chorus: 

Oh Lord, I wanna go 

But they won't let me go 

Oh Lord, I wanna go hoo-hoo-hoooome EH! 

They say that in the Army the biscuits are mighty fine 

one rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine 


Chorus: 

Oh Lord, I wanna go 

But they won't let me go 

Oh Lord, I wanna go hoo-hoo-hoooome EH! 

They say that in the Army the training's might fine 

last night there were ten of us, now there's only nine 


Chorus: 

Oh Lord, I wanna go 

But they won't let me go 

Oh Lord, I wanna go hoo-hoo-hoooome EH! 

They say that in the Army the pay is mighty fine 

they give you a hundred dollars and take back ninety-nine 


Chorus: 

Oh Lord, I wanna go 

But they won't let me go 

Oh Lord, I wanna go hoo-hoo-hoooome EH
