Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy
The Andrews Sisters Lyrics


He was a famous trumpet man from out Chicago way
He had a boogie style that no one else could play
He was the top man at his craft
But then his number came up and he was gone with the draft
He's in the army now, a-blowin' reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

They made him blow a bugle for his Uncle Sam
It really brought him down because he couldn't jam
The captain seemed to understand
Because the next day the cap' went out and drafted a band
And now the company jumps when he plays reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

A-toot, a-toot, a-toot-diddelyada-toot
He blows it eight-to-the-bar, in boogie rhythm
He can't blow a note unless the bass and guitar is playin' with 'I'm
He makes the company jump when he plays reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

He was our boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
And when he plays boogie woogie bugle he was buzy as a "bzzz" bee
And when he plays he makes the company jump eight-to-the-bar
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

Toot-toot-toot, toot-diddelyada, toot-diddelyada
Toot, toot, he blows it eight-to-the-bar
He can't blow a note if the bass and guitar isn't with 'I'm
A-a-a-and the company jumps when he plays reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

He puts the boys asleep with boogie every night
And wakes 'em up the same way in the early bright
They clap their hands and stamp their feet
Because they know how he plays when someone gives him a beat
He really breaks it up when he plays reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da da
Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da da
Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da da
Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da
A-a-a-and the company jumps when he plays reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B!

😅 Assistindo em 2020 esse documento histórico, chega a dar nostalgia de um tempo que não vivi. Constato como a humanidade melhorou num todo e ainda vai melhorar mais, como eramos feios naquela época e inocentes no gosto. Apesar do contra de alguns saudosistas, a beleza da humanidade avança. Que bom !!!

I'm proud of my mother, Florence Weinstein, WWII vet and big Andrews Sisters fan, still going strong at 97 in 2021.

@Scott Kay Mom has all her mental faculties intact. I am blessed. Her memory is selective, but that's true for all of us.

That's freaking awesome! Mom's gonna be 95 soon and even though she's got Alzimers, still remembers the much from her and Dad's youth. IMHO, i think it holds up well!
