Lyrics

If you want to find the Sergeant,
I know where he is, I know where he is, I know where he is.
If you want to find the Sergeant, I know where he is,
He’s lying on the canteen floor.
I’ve seen him, I’ve seen him, lying on the canteen floor,
I’ve seen him, I’ve seen him, lying on the canteen floor.

If you want to find the Quarter-bloke
I know where he is, I know where he is, I know where he is.
If you want to find the Quarter-bloke, I know where he is,
He’s miles and miles behind the line.
I’ve seen him, I’ve seen him, miles and miles and miles behind the line.
I’ve seen him, I’ve seen him, miles and miles and miles behind the line.

If you want the Sergeant-major,
I know where he is, I know where he is, I know where he is.
If you want the Sergeant-major, I know where he is.
He’s tossing off the privates’ rum.
I’ve seen him, I’ve seen him, tossing off the privates’ rum.
I’ve seen him, I’ve seen him, tossing off the privates’ rum.

If you want the C.O.,
I know where he is, I know where he is, I know where he is.
If you want the C.O., I know where he is
He is down in a deep dug-out,
I’ve seen him, I’ve seen him, down in a deep dug-out,
I’ve seen him, I’ve seen him, down in a deep dug-out.

If you want to find the old battalion,
I know where they are, I know where they are, I know where they are
If you want to find the old battalion, I know where they are,
They’re hanging on the old barbed wire,
I’ve seen ’em, I’ve seen ’em, hanging on the old barbed wire.
I’ve seen ’em, I’ve seen ’em, hanging on the old barbed wire.[1]
