Roger Miller – Private John Q lyrics

Well I read in the papers and I see it on the televison
Everybody's scared about the World War Three
Here I am a single boy unemployment and everything
Somebody better stop and worry bout me
Well can't you just see me now chin up chest out
A-hup two three fout all day through
Everybody seems to be worried about a somethin' other
Who's gonna worry bout Private John Q rumbumbaduba

Sometimes I get dishearted and try hard not to think about it
Heaven knows it's hard to keep from lettin' it get me down
But I'll stand proud when everybody else will be
Runnin' helter-shelter for a shelter underground
Well can't you just see me now...

When I's a little boy I used to sit and dream of travelin'
To lotsa foreign countries on a sight seein' tours
The way it's lookin' now I can stop savin' money maybe
Go free sponsored by a Third World War
Well can't you just see me now...
Well can't you just see me now...
