SONGS OF THE SOLDIERS AND SAILORS. 31
37. GOOD MORNING, MR. ZIP-ZIP-ZIP.
Fort Niagara song.
Good morning, Mr. Zip-Zip-Zip,
With your hair cut just as short as mine,
Good moring, Mr. Zip-Zip-Zip, You're surely looking fine.
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust,
If the Camels don't get you, the Fatimas must;
Good morning, Mr. Zip-Zip-Zip,
With your hair cut just as short as,
Your hair cut just as short as, Hair cut just as short as mine.
38. WORDS TO THE ARMY TRUMPET CALLS.
(A flat.)
REVEILLE.
I can't get 'em up, I can't get 'em up, I can't get 'em up in the morning; I can't get 'em up, I can't get 'em up, I can't get 'em up at all.
Corp'rals worse than the privates;
Sergeants worse than the corporals;
Lieutenants worse than the sergeants,
An' the capt'ns worst of all.
Chorus: I can't get 'em up, I can't get 'em up, etc.
MESS CALL.
Soup-y, soup-y, without a single bean: Pork-y, pork-y, pork, without a streak of lean; Coffee, coffee, coffee, without any cream, (or, the weakest ever seen.)
