Private John Q (Roger Miller?) Well, I read it in the paper and I seen it on the television Ever'body's worryin' 'bout a World War III. I am just a single boy, unemployed and ever'thin' Somebody'd better stop and worry 'bout me. Cho: Can't you just see me now? "Chin up! Chest out! Hut two three four" all day through. Ever'body seems to be worryin' 'bout somethin' 'nother Who's gonna worry 'bout a private John Q? Sometimes I get downhearted and I try hard not to think about it's All that I can do to keep from lettin' it get me down. But I'll stand proud while ever'body else will be a- Runnin' helter-skelter for a shelter underground. When I'se a little boy I used to sit an dream of trav'lin' Visit lots of foreign countries on a sight-seein' tour; The way it looks now, I can stop savin' money Maybe go free, sponsored by a third World War.
