Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy

In the style of

Bette Midler

Lyrics

he was a famous
trumpet man from
out chicago way
he had a boogie style
that no one else
could play

he was the top man
at his craft
but then his number
came up and he was
gone with the draft

he's in the army now
he's blowin' reveille
he's the boogie
woogie bugle boy
of company "b"

they made him blow
a bugle for his
uncle sam it really
brought him down
because he
could not jam

the captain seemed
to understand
because the next day
the cap' went out
and drafted a band

and now the company
jumps when he plays
reveille
he's the boogie
woogie bugle boy
of company "b"

a-root a-toot
a-tootley out a-toot
he blows it
eight to the bar
in boogie rhythm

he can't blow a note
unless a bass
and guitar is playin'
with him

and the company
jumps when he plays
reveille
he's the boogie
woogie bugle boy
of company "b"

he was some boogie
woogie bugle boy
of company "b"

and when he played
his boogie woogie
bugle he was busy
as a bzzzzy bee

and when he played
he made the company
jump eight to the bar
he's the boogie
woogie bugle boy
of company "b"

and a-tootley
out a-tootley
out a-toot toot
he blows it eight
to the bar
he can't blow a note
if a bass and guitar
isn't with him

and the company
jumps when he plays
reveille
he's the boogie
woogie bugle boy
of company "b"

he puts the boys
to sleep with boogie
every night
and wakes 'em up
the same way
in the early bright

they clap their hands
and stamp their feet
'cause they know
how it goes
when someone
gives 'em a beat

woh woh
he breaks it up when
he plays reveille
the boogie woogie
bugle boy of
company "b"

a-root a-toot
a-tootley out a-toot
toot toot he blows it
eight to the bar
yeah can't blow
a note if a bass
and guitar doesn't
blow with him

and the company
jumps when he plays
reveille
he's the boogie
woogie bugle boy
of company "b"
