Get up Jimmy Newman
The morning is come
The engines are rumbling
The coffees all brewed
Get up Jimmy Newman
There's work to be done

And why do you lie shore still sleeping
There's waiting line forming
To use the latrine
And the sun is just opening the skies
The breakfast their serving
And you've only to open your eyes

Get up Jimmy Newman my radios on
The news is all bad
But it's good for a laugh
The tent flap is loose
And the peg must be gone
You lie there still sleeping

Get up Jimmy Newman
They won't take my word
I said you sleep hard
But there shaking their heads
Get up Jimmy Newman
And show them you heard

Ah, Jimmy just show them you're sleeping
A joke is a joke but there's nothing to gain
I might slap you but I'm to weak to rise
Get up, dam it, Jimmy, you're missing the plane
And you've only to open your eyes
And you've only to open your eyes
Oh, my God Jimmy open your eyes

Songwriters
Paxton, Thomas R
