When Private Brown Becomes a Captain

Song lyrics to When Private Brown Becomes a Captain, Lyrics by Don Raye, Music by Hugh Prince, Performed by Lou Costello , Shemp Howard and the kitchen crew in Buck Privates

Herbie Brown (Lou Costello): That sergeant always makes me boil,
I’d like to fry that guy in oil,
No matter what you do he’s always squawkin’
But you just wait and don’t forget
I’ll get to be a captain yet
And that’s the day that I’ll do all the talkin’.
