Get up Jimmy Newman the morning is come
The engine's are rumbling the coffee's all brewed
Get up Jimmy Newman there's work to be done
And why do you lie there still sleeping

There's a waiting line forming to use the latrine
And the sun is just opening the sky
The breakfast they're serving just has to be seen
And you've only to open your eyes

Get up Jimmy Newman my radio's on
The news is all bad but it's good for a laugh
The tent flap is loose and the peg must be gone
Why do you lie there still sleeping

The night nurse is gone and the sexy one's here
And she tells us such beautiful lies
Her uniform's tight on her marvellous rear
And you've only to open your eyes

Get up Jimmy Newman you're missing the fun
We're loading the plane Jim it's time to go home
It's over for us there's no more to be done
And why do you lie there still sleeping

It's stateside for us Jim the folks may not know
We'll let it be such a surprise
They're loading us next Jim we're ready to go
And you've only to open your eyes

Get up Jimmy Newman they won't take my word
I said you sleep hard but they're shaking their heads
Get up Jimmy Newman and show them you heard
Jimmy just show them you're sleeping

A joke is a joke but there's nothing to gain
Jim I'd slap you but I'm too weak to rise
Get up damn it Jimmy you're missing the plane
And you've only to open your eyes.
