The Lyrics

I was gonna write a M*A*S*H parody, but Claude Prez beat me to it. That's no excuse not to try, though.
(long instrumental opening)

Out here in the East
mess tent has no feast
we put our backs into our heaving.

Why does Army fight
absurdness height
doctors work all night to keep 'em living.

Don't cry.
Don't raise your eyes.
It's only Klinger's nightgown!

Radar, make a stand!
Burns is in command!
Call Colonel Potter, tell him, please, get back here!

My bathtub gin is here!
It's better than our beer!
The outlook is dire for peace before we're older!

On the waistlines, oh yeah, surgery on waistlines!
On the waistlines, oh yeah, surgery on waistlines!
Lives are wasted!

(long instrumental close)
