I've been a soldier quite a while 
And I would like to state
The life is simply wonderful

Ya gotta get up this morning

Someday I'm going to murder the bugler
Someday they're going to find him dead

I'll amputate his reveille
And step upon it heavily
And spend the rest of my life in bed

[alternate lines in 2nd chorus]
And then I'll get that other pup
The guy who wakes the bugler up
