YOU'LL LOVE THE ARMY From the film "King Arthur Was A Gentleman" (1942) (Music: Manning Sherwin / Lyrics: Val Guest) Evelyn Dall (Film Soundtrack) - 1942 When you get in the Army Life isn't half so balmy You get away from your wife But it's not like the life That you lived up to now, but oh! Don't let me make you nervous Once you get in the Service Very soon you'll know If you're a soldier man or no If you're the type who can sleep the night On the pebble stones on the beach at Brighton And like it, you'll love the Army If you're the type who wears double-breasted To hide the fact that you're pigeon chested Then buddy, you'll love the Army If you can take a tank apart with ease In oil and grease up to your knees And taste the petrol in your tea And sing "Thanks for the memory" If at home, before you get uppa Your mother brings you a morning cuppa You'll miss that, ah yes, you'll miss that You'll just get a bugle when day is dawnin' And a kick in the pants if you're late in the morning At Reveille, yes sirree, you'll love the Army (If you're the type who can sleep the night) (On the pebble stones on the beach at Brighton) (And like it, mmm-hmm, you'll love the Army) (If you're the type who wears double-breasted) (To hide the fact that you're pigeon chested) (Then buddy, oh-hoh, you'll love the Army) (If you can take a tank apart with ease) (In oil and grease up to your knees) (And taste the petrol in your tea) (And sing "Thanks for the memory") If at home, before you get uppa Your mother brings you a morning cuppa You'll miss that, ah yes, you'll miss that You'll just get a bugle when day is dawning And a kick in the pants if you're late in the morning At Reveille, (yes sirree), at Reveille, (yes sirree, at Reveille) Yes sirree, you'll love the Army (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2011)
