An Order to Pack My Bags

Marching Jody

Sung to the tune of “The Ants go marching one by one”

I got a order to pack my bags, Hurrah, Hurrah
I got a order to pack my bags, Hurrah, Hurrah
I got a order to pack my bags, Encampment Staff is waiting for me
And we’ll all graduate and join the CTG

They wake us up at 5 AM, Hurrah, Hurrah
They wake us up at 5 AM, Hurrah, Hurrah
They wake us up at 5 AM, And think that we should smile at them
And we’ll all graduate and join the CTG

They form us up by 5:05, Hurrah, Hurrah
Half asleep and half alive
And then we do our PT drill
The sereants make it such a thrill
We eat our breakfast on the run
I’m still in line when they say “you’re done”
We quickly have to shine and buff
They seem to think it’ll make us tough
We march and march and march some more
For that’s the honor of our Corps
