Now the United States did it once
An I just know'd they was goin' to do it again
Now the United Stated did it once
An I just know'd they was going to do it again
Now when the Germans first started the war
I just know'd the United State was gon' win

I didn't pass in the army
But I'm really doin' ev'rything I can, now
I didn't pass in the army
But I'm really doin' ev'rthing I can
Now an I'll just keep my fingers crossed
Because the United State have just got to win

(harmonica & instrumental)

I didn't mind goin' to the army
If that was all that we had to do
I didn't mind goin' through the army, yeah
If that was all that we had to do
Now we've already wupped the German
An we've gotta go an wup them Japanese, too

You know the President acks General MacArthur
'How many more ships a-do you need?'
You know the President acks General MacArthur
'How many more ships do you need?'

We are prob'ly need about a-couple more hundred ships
An Japan funeral, boy to be followin' after me, yeah.
