Jimmy Newman  Tom Paxton



Get [E]up Jimmy Newman the [A]morning is [E]come
The engine's are rumbling the [F]coffee's all [E]brewed
Get up Jimmy Newman there's [A]work to be [E]done
And [F]why do you lie there still [B]sleeping
There's a [E]waiting line forming to [A]use the latrine
And the [E]sun is just opening the [B]sky
The [E]breakfast they're serving just [A]has to be [E]seen
And you've [F]only to open your [E]eyes
Get up Jimmy Newman my [A]radio's [E]on
The news is all bad but it's [F]good for a [E]laugh
The tent flap is loose and the [A]peg must be [E]gone
[F]Why do you lie there still [B]sleeping
The [E]night nurse is gone and the [A]sexy one's here
And she [E]tells us such beautiful [B]lies
Her [E]uniform's tight on her [A]marvellous [E]rear
And you've [F]only to open your [E]eyes
Get up Jimmy Newman you're [A]missing the [E]fun
We're loading the plane Jim it's [F]time to go [E]home
It's over for us there's no [A]more to be [E]done
And [F]why do you lie there still [B]sleeping
It's [E]stateside for us Jim the [A]folks may not know
We'll [E]let it be such a sur[B]prise
They're [E]loading us next Jim we're [A]ready to [E]go
And you've [F]only to open your [E]eyes
Get up Jimmy Newman they [A]won't take my [E]word
I said you sleep hard but they're [F]shaking their [E]heads
Get up Jimmy Newman and [A]show them you [E]heard
[F]Jimmy just show them you're [B]sleeping
A [E]joke is a joke but there's [A]nothing to gain
Jim I'd [E]slap you but I'm too weak to [B]rise
Get [E]up damn it Jimmy you're [A]missing the [E]plane
And you've [F]only to open your eyes
