The Army Bean There's a spot that the soldiers all love The mess tent's the place that we mean, And the dish that we like best to see Is the old-fashioned white army bean. cho: 'Tis the bean that we mean And we'll eat as we ne'er ate before; The army bean, nice and clean We'll stick to our beans evermore. Now the bean in its primitive state Is a plant we have all often met; And when cooked in the old army style, It has charms we can never forget. The German is fond of sauerkraut The potato is loved by the Mick; But the soldiers have long since found out That through life to our beans we should stick. From Singing Soldiers, Glass RG
