“Gee, But I Want to Go Home”


A soldier complains about the coffee ("It's good for cuts and bruises And it tastes like iodine), food, clothes, work, and girls at the service club. Chorus: "I don't want no more of army life. Gee, but I want to go home"


Why do I suspect that Oscar Brand had a hand in this song? - PJS
