A vacation in the foreign land
Uncle Sam does the best he can
You're in the army now (wooh woooh)
you're in the army... now

Now you remember what the draftman said:
"Nothin' to do all day but stay in bed"
You're in the army now (wooh woooh)
You're in the army... now
You're in the army now (wooh woooh)
You're in the army... now

You'll be the hero of the neighbourhood
Nobody knows that you left for good
You're in the army now (wooh woooh)
You're in the army... now

Smiling faces on the way to Nam
But once you get there noone gives a damn
You're in the army now (wooh woooh)
You're in the army... now
You're in the army now (wooh woooh)
You're in the army... now

(Da da da da dam daam)
(Da da da da dam daam)
(Da da da da dam daam)
(Da da da da dam daam)

Handgrenades flying over your head...
Missiles flying over your head
if you wanna survive
get out of her bed
You're in the army now (wooh woooh)
You're in the army... now

Shots ring out in the dead of night
The sergant calls "Stand up and fight!"
You're in the army now (wooh woooh)
You're in the army... now
You're in the army now (wooh woooh)
You're in the army... now

You've got your orders
to shoot on sight...
Your fingers on the trigger
But it don't seem right
You're in the army now (wooh woooh)
You're in the army... now

Night is falling and you just cant see
is this solution a reality?
You're in the army now (wooh woooh)
You're in the army... now
You're in the army now (wooh woooh)
You're in the army... now

(Da da da da dam daam)
(Da da da da dam daam)
(Da da da da dam daam)
(Da da da da dam daam)
