I GOT TEN BUCKS AND TWENTY-FOUR HOURS' LEAVE (Claude Wilson / Jerry Livingston) The Merry Macs - 1943 Twenty dollars for the ticket, and five you owe to Ben And counting all deductions, that leaves you just ten So inspect me, Sarge, it's up to you But hurry please, I've so much to do Got my brass so shined up smart Gonna see the one who's got my heart I got ten bucks, and twenty-four hour's leave Captain Jones just signed my pass Through the gates I'm going, free at last I got ten bucks, and twenty-four hour's leave Come number forty-nine around the bend I got no time to be wasting I love to hear the sound of those wheels turnin' 'round A clickety-clack, they carry me back So hurry, Sarge, my K.P.'s done Gotta date to see my only one I got ten bucks, and twenty-four hour's leave It takes two fifty-five, including the tax For a table at Tony's, where we can relax And to greet me up to a neat corsage That'll chop out a chunk about two bucks large And I'll have to have a bit, a quarter, I know To send my litle brother Willie away to a show And countin' all the smokes, and refreshments, too My ten bucks oughta just about do 'Cause then we'll mosey home and turn the lights down low So why the heck do we need more dough? Got my brass all shined up smart Gonna see the one who's got my heart I got ten bucks, and twenty-four hour's leave Captain Jones just signed my pass Through the gates I'm going, free at last I got ten bucks, and twenty-four hour's leave Come number forty-nine around the bend Got no time to be wasting Love to hear the sound of those wheels turnin' 'round A clickety-clack, they carry me back Oh, Sarge, my K.P.'s done Gotta date to see my only one I got ten bucks, ??? ??? ???, look out! I got ten bucks, twenty-four hour's leave (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2012)
