If you want to find the gen’ral,
I know where he is,
I know where he is,
I know where he is.
If you want to find the gen’ral,
I know where he is:
He’s pinning another medal on his chest!
I saw him; I saw him
Pinning another medal on his chest,
Pinning another medal on his chest!

If you want to find the col’nel,
I know where he is,
I know where he is,
I know where he is.
If you want to find the col’nel,
I know where he is:
He’s sitting in comfort stuffing his bloody gut!
I saw him; I saw him
Sitting in comfort stuffing his bloody gut,
Sitting in comfort stuffing his bloody gut!

If you want to find the sergeant,
I know where he is,
I know where he is,
I know where he is.
If you want to find the sergeant,
I know where he is:
He’s drinking all the company rum!
I saw him; I saw him
Drinking all the company rum,
Drinking all the company rum!

If you want to find the private,
I know where he is,
I know where he is,
I know where he is.
If you want to find the private,
I know where he is:
He’s hanging on the old barbed wire!
I saw him; I saw him
Hanging on the old barbed wire,
Hanging on the old barbed wire!
