Uncle Sam's Song

Uncle Sam's Song

There's a man called Uncle Sam
And he wears a leer all day
If you ask him why he grins
He replies this way:
I just call the tune, and you will croon
Old Uncle Sam's Song
Long as I've a dollar, I know you'll holler
Uncle Sam's song.
Nothin' in their guts, drives 'cm nuts
Old Uncle Sam's song.
Still they don't complain, in spite of the pain
(I'll do for 'em if they do)
The Regimental Band in every land
Plays Uncle Sam's Song.
Though they don't agree (as you will see)
So forget your troubles and wear a smile
You'll all agree
That's it's a grand song.
And pretend things never go wrong.
While I call the tune. You'll have to croon
Old Uncle Sam's song.
