He was a famous trumpet man from out Chicago way
He was the top man at his craft
He's in the army now, a-blowin' reveille

It really brought him down because he couldn't jam
Because the next day the cap' went out and drafted a band
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
A-toot, a-toot, a-toot-diddleyada-toot
He can't blow a note unless the bass and guitar is playin' with him
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
He was our boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
And when he plays, he makes the company jump eight-to-the-bar

Toot, toot, he blows it eight-to-the-bar
A-a-a-and the company jumps when he plays reveille

And wakes 'em up the same way in the early bright
Because they know how he plays when someone gives him a beat
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
Da-doo-da, da-doo-da-da, da
Da-doo-da, da-doo-da-da, da
A-a-a-and the company jumps when he plays reveille
