The Ptes Lament

Now Im going to tell a little tale
About this army Grand
Where the bread and Bully always
And the cheese it beats the band
Its fixed by cooks who know
The Game
From ABC to Z
The Privates always get the
The good dope for the heads
For the Capt he gets Poultry
The Major he gets duck
The Colonel gets a little wine
With a little bit of luck
The Batman gets the leavings
The Cooks a little ham
While all the poor old Private gets is bread
And [dash] jam
