Elvis Presley - G.I.Blues Lyrics

 

They give us a room

with a view of the beautiful Rhine

They give us a room

with a view of the beautiful Rhine

Gimme a muddy old creek

in Texas any old time

 

I've got those hup, two, three, four

occupation G.I. Blues

From my G.I. hair to the heels of my G.I. shoes

And if I don't go stateside soon

I'm gonna blow my fuse

 

We get hasenpfeffer

and black pumpernickel for chow

We get hasenpfeffer

and black pumpernickel for chow

I'd blow my next month's pay

for a slice of Texas cow

 

We'd like to be heroes,

but all we do here is march

We'd like to be heroes,

but all we do here is march

And they don't give the Purple Heart

for a fallen arch

 

I've got those hup, two, three, four

occupation G.I. Blues

From my G.I. hair to the heels of my G.I. shoes

And if I don't go stateside soon

I'm gonna blow my fuse

 

The frauleins are pretty as flowers

But we can't make a pass

The frauleins are pretty as flowers

But we can't make a pass

Cause they're all wearin' signs saying:

"Keepen sie off the grass"

 

I've got those hup, two, three, four

occupation G.I. Blues

From my G.I. hair to the heels of my G.I. shoes

And if I don't go stateside soon

I'm gonna blow my fuse
