Mercer

This is the G. I. Jive
Man alive
It starts with the bugler blowin'
reveille over your bed when you arrive
Jack, that's the G. I. Jive

Roodley-toot

Jump in your suit
Make a salute
Boot!!

After you wash and dress
More or
less
You go get your breakfast in a beautiful little caf?they call "The Mess"
Jack, when
you convalesce

Outta your seat
Into the street
Make with the feet

Reet!!

If you're a P-V-T, your duty
Is to salute to L-I-E-U-T
But if you brush
the L-I-E-U-T
The M-P makes you K-P on the Q-T

This is the G. I. Jive
Man
alive
They give you a private tank that features a little device called "fluid drive"

Jack, after you revive

Chuck all your junk
Back in the trunk
Fall on your
bunk
Clunk!!

This is the G. I. Jive
Man alive
They give you a private tank
that features a little device called "fluid drive"
Jack, if you still survive

Chuck
all your junk
Back in the trunk
Fall on your bunk
Clunk!!

Soon you're
countin' jeeps
But before you count to five
Seems you're right back diggin' that G. I.
Jive
