Song, Cadence, Chant, whatever.

When I was in the army...
they gave me lots of food...
When I was in the army...
they told me sleep was good...
but my dear old sergeant...
was having non of that.
Food will make you sleepy...
Sleep will make you fat.

When I was in the army...
they told me get some gear...
When I was in the army...
they told me have no fear...
but my dear old sergeant...
issued me nothing...
and said I'd better tremble...
when I hear his name...

When I was in the army...
they told me I was smart...
When I was in the army...
they said I'd learn a lot...
but my dear old sergeant...
call-ed me stu-pid...
said I'd never learn...
only end up dead.

So I can thank the army....
for a dollar a day...
but I thank my sergeant...
for making me this way...


To me this is sung to the tune of that really addictive song from the animated version of "The Hobbit". The one that they sing every time they do a travel sequence. Anyways it all rhymes if you say the words the way I do.
