    Lyrics

    He was a famous trumpet man from out Chicago way
    He had a boogie style that no one else could play
    He was the top man at his craft
    But then his number came up and he was gone with the draft
    He's in the army now, blowing reveille
    He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

    They made him blow a bugle for his Uncle Sam
    It really brought him down because he could not jam
    The captain seemed to understand
    Because the next day the cap' went out and drafted a band
    And now the company jumps when he plays reveille
    He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

    A-toot, a-toot, a-toot-diddelyada-toot
    He blows it eight-to-the-bar, in boogie rhythm
    He can't blow a note unless the bass and guitar is playing with him
    He makes the company jump when he plays reveille
    He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

    He was our boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
    And when he plays boogie woogie bugle he was buzy as a "bzzz" bee
    And when he plays he makes the company jump eight-to-the-bar
    He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

    Toot-toot-toot, toot-diddelyada, toot-diddelyada
    Toot, toot, he blows it eight-to-the-bar
    He can't blow a note if the bass and guitar isn't with him
    And the company jumps when he plays reveille
    He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

    He puts the boys asleep with boogie every night
    And wakes 'em up the same way in the early bright
    They clap their hands and stomp their feet
    Because they know how he plays when someone gives him a beat
    He really breaks it up when he plays reveille
    He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

    Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da da
    Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da da
    Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da da
    Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da
    And the company jumps when he plays reveille
    He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B!
