Army Bugs Soldiers sing of their beans and canteens, Of the coffee in old army cup, Why not mention the small friends we`ve seen Always trying to chew armies up ? cho: Those firm friends , tireless friends, Hardly ever neglecting their hugs, Their regard never ends, How they loved us, those old army bugs._ Note: Whether called Cooties, or, to Confederate soldiers, "Bragg's bodyguard" or "tigers", lice were a soldier's faithful companions. tune: Sweet Bye and Bye RG
