Army Bugs
Soldiers sing of their beans and canteens,
Of the coffee in old army cup,
Why not mention the small friends we`ve seen
Always trying to chew armies up ?
cho: Those firm friends , tireless friends,
     Hardly ever neglecting their hugs,
     Their regard never ends,
     How they loved us, those old army bugs._
Note: Whether called Cooties, or, to Confederate soldiers,
     "Bragg's bodyguard" or "tigers", lice were a soldier's
     faithful companions.

tune: Sweet Bye and Bye
