Jimmy Dean – Gonna Raise A Ruckus Tonight lyrics

Army life, it just won't do
(Raise a rukus tonight)
The food is poor and the pay is too
(Raise a rukus tonight)

Them army doctors got no heart
(Raise a rukus tonight)
They use a big square needle
And it sure does smart
(Raise a rukus tonight)

So, won't you come along
Little children, come along
Come while the moon is shining bright
Get on board, down the river float
We're gonna raise a rukus tonight

There's an army saying
They think is cute
(Raise a rukus tonight)
If it don't move, paint it
If it does, salute
(Raise a rukus tonight)

We had chicken for chow today
(Raise a rukus tonight)
Mine got up and it walked away
(Raise a rukus tonight)


Well, I got a gal in San Antone
(Raise a rukus tonight)
She call me on the telephone
(Raise a rukus tonight)

Well, I said now, honey
Do you love me true
(Raise a rukus tonight)
She said, you bet your boots, I do
(Raise a rukus tonight)


Gonna see my baby
When the weekend comes
(Raise a rukus tonight)
We ain't got money
But we sure have fun
(Raise a rukus tonight)

Yes siree, gonna see my honey
(Raise a rukus tonight)
Well, the things we like
Don't cost much money
