INTRO

And I'd rather be a Army man, baby, and I was in Spain, bein' here with these no-good women, they're doin' everything they can
I said, "Yes, mama, mama, and I rather had be an Army man,
Than to be here with these no-good women, man, these women doin' everything they can."

You know, my mama told me, when I was a boy, "If you join the Army, you won't have no more joy."
And I told her, "Yes, mama, mama and I would rather be a Army man,
Lord, to be 'round here with these no-good women, you know, these women doin' everything they can."

My baby, she told me, "I hate to see you go. If you join the Army, I want you to will me your dough."
I told her, "No, woman, woman, I would will you my watch and chain,
If you just make me a promise, Lord, that you won't give it to no other man."

My Dad, he joined the Army, when I was a boy, I said "When I's get a man, I wanna do the same thing."
I said, "Yes, Daddy, Daddy I wanta be a Army man,
Than to be here with these no-good women, and these women doin' everything they can."

SOLO (Spoken: Play it, boy, I got 'em now.)
