My husband was in the Army in 1964. One of their marching songs was "I don't want no more of this Army". I would love to have the words to this song so my husband could sing it to our grandson. My e-mail is (firstname.lastname@example.org) Thank you!
Is this the "Gee, Mom, I wanna go home" song?
I think there were a few versions of this song (and that you can search for some videos of people singing them on YouTube.com).
This is one version that I think was popular in WWII -- not sure if it's the same one your husband remembers:
Five o'clock in the morningand I gaced up on the wall Bedbugs and the roaches were having a game of ballScore was six to nothingand the bedbugs were aheadThe roaches hit a homerand knocked me outta bedI don't want no more of this army lifeGee, Mom, I wanna go homeNo, I don't want to more of this army lifeGee, Mom, I wanna go...Oh boy, do I wanna go...Gee, Mom, I wanna go home
Oh, boy oh boy, does that ever bring back memories. I haven't thought of that song in years, but that's all I heard it seems when I was about five years old. My friends and I would actually march up down the sidewalk with paper hats on our heads and sing that silly ditty.
