Jimmy Newman

Tom Paxton

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