THIS IS THE ARMY, MR. JONES From the musical show "This Is The Army" (1942) (Irving Berlin) Also recorded by: Gene Autry; Chas & Dave; Horace Heidt; Enoch Light; Vera Lynn; Hal McIntyre & his Orch.; Mormon Tabernacle Choir; Dinah Shore; Staff Band of the Corps of REME; Mel Tormé. A bunch of frightened rookies were list'ning filled with awe. They listened while a sergeant was laying down the law. They stood there at attention, Their faces turning red. The sergeant looked them over and this is what he said: This is the army, Mister Jones. No private rooms or telephones. You had your breakfast in bed before But you won't have it there any more. This is the army, Mister Green. We like the barracks nice and clean. You had a housemaid to clean your floor But she won't help you out anymore. Do what the buglers command. They're in the army and not in a band. This is the army, Mister Brown. You and your baby went to town. She had you worried But this is war and she won't worry you anymore. This is the army, Mister Jones. No private rooms or telephones. You had your breakfast in bed before But you won't have it there any more.
