Army Cadence!
By Casey Sean Harmon

Did this one freestyle one morning. Never could get it out of my head!

I was brand new to the Army, and we were out early one morning marching around a field before a run. The platoon leader knew that I had never called cadence before, so he called me out in front of the whole platoon and told me to march the unit. I did not know any marching songs, so I started out with a "left, right, left," and then I just started singing what came to mind. Here's the cadence I came up with:

 

If you don't want to be here

(Echo)

Pack your bags and go home

(Echo)

We don't want no quitters

(Echo)

Singin' our song

(Echo)

 

Army, Army

(Echo)

We fight tonight

(Echo)

I love the Army

(Echo)

Everything is all right

(Echo)

 

Swing your arms up down

(Echo)

Forty inches all around

(Echo)

If you don't want to be here

(Echo)

Pack your bags and go home

(Echo)

 

I don't know but I've been told

(Echo)

This here Army's good as gold

(Echo)

Left, Right, Left, Right

(Echo)

Left, Right you're outa sight

(Echo)

 

If you don't want to be here

(Echo)

Pack your bags and go home

(Echo)

We don't want no quitters

(Echo)

Singin' our song

(Echo)
