Song lyrics to We’re in the Army Now (1917) – lyrics by Tell Taylor & Ole Olsen. Music, Isham Jones

We’re in the Army Now (also known as You’re in the Army Now) has appeared in multiple movies and cartoons about the US Army. They include (among others)

From the looks of things, we’ve got to join the army.
Uncle Sammy means to do just what he says.
It won’t be long before we’re in the trenches,
A-fighting for the dear old USA,
So when anything goes wrong,
We’ll sing this little song:

[chorus]:
We’re in the army now.
We’re not behind a plow.
We’ll never get rich a-diggin’ a ditch.
We’re in the army now.
We’re in the army now.
Suppose you wonder how.
But don’t you fear. You’ll soon be here.
We’re in the army now.

Now you see the boys as they go marching by you,
In their uniforms and colors, they look grand.
To the tune of “Yankee Doodle he’s a dandy,”
They’re marching for the dear old Yankee land.
So when anything goes wrong,
We’ll sing this little song:
Chorus
