Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy

He was a famous trumpet man from old 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 diddle-ee-ada-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 ‘im
He makes the company jump when he plays reveille
He’s the boogie-woogie bugle boy of Company B
He was the boogie-woogie bugle boy of Company B
And when he plays boogie-woogie bugle
He’s as busy as a bzz 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 diddle-ee-ada-toot-diddle-ee-ada, toot toot
He blows it eight to the bar
He can’t blow a note
If the bass and guitar isn’t with ‘im
A-and the company jumps when he plays reveille
He’s the boogie-woogie bugle boy of Company B
He puts the boys to sleep with boogie every night
And wakes them 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

      Found your site, well laid out. Your photo gives it a person viewpoint, maybe a first name somewhere to continue that personal touch. Also my first impression was I liked the green, my favorite color, but maybe a green or other color that stands out a little more. Thanks for your comments on my blog, I’m enjoying adding to it each day.

      Thanks for the comments. I’m a retired teacher, a writer of a newspaper column and a couple self published books, Please when you have time tell me more about your background, and I’ll check out the schooling tips after I’m done writing this. I’ve only had this blog up for about 6 weeks, but I find it fun and challenging to come up with one or two posts each day. I want to keep it light but I also want it to have some substance as well.
