Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I've been a soldier quite a while
And I would like to state
The life is simply wonderful
The Army food is great
Verse 2
I sleep with ninety-seven others in a wooden hut
I love them all
They all love me
It's very lovely but
Verse 3
Oh! How I hate to get up in the morning
Oh! How I'd love to remain in bed
Verse 4
For the hardest blow of all
Is to hear the bugler call
Ya gotta get up
Ya gotta get up
Ya gotta get up this morning
Verse 5
Someday I'm going to murder the bugler
Someday they're going to find him dead
Verse 6
I'll amputate his reveille
And step upon it heavily
And spend the rest of my life in bed
Verse 7
[alternate lines in 2nd chorus]
And then I'll get that other pup
The guy who wakes the bugler up
