Uncle Sam is gonna give me a Thunderbolt, yeah
He want me to fly a-way up above the cloud
Uncle Sam is gonna give me a Thunderbolt, yeah
He wants me to fly a-way up above the cloud
He wants to drop a bomb on the Japanese
I really got to make my baby proud

I wants a machine gun, yeah
And I wants to be hid out in the wood
I wants a machine gun
And I wants to be hid out in the wood
I wants to show old man Hitler
That Sonny Boy don't mean him no good

I wants to drop a big bomb, yeah
An set the Japanese city on fire
I wants to drop a bomb, um
An set the Japanese city on fire
Now because they are so rotten
That I'd just love to see them die

'Well alright! '

(harmonica & instrumental)

I've got the victory blues
Because I know I have got to go
I've got the victory blues
Because I know I have got to go
Now to keep the dirty Japanese
From slippin' in through my baby's back door.

~
