American Ballads and Folk Songs
I'll tell where they areó Up to their ears in mud.
If you want to know where the sergeants are,
Etc., etc.,
Clipping the old barbed wire.
If you want to know where the captains are,
Etc., etc.,
Drinking the privates' rum.
If you want to know where the officers are,
Etc., etc.,
Down in their deep dug-out.
If you want to know where the generals are,
Etc., etc.,
Back in gay Paree.
