Topic: REVEILLE AND TAPS


Does anyone know the words to reveille and taps? We were taught this way.
Reveille:
You've gotta get up,
you've gotta get up,
you've gotta get up in the morning.
The Colonel told the Captain,
The Captain told the Sergeant,
The Sergeant told the bugler,
The bugler told 'em all.
You've gotta get up,
You've gotta get up,
You've gotta get up in the morning.
Get up with the bugle call.


Taps:
Far away, bugles play.
Sounding taps at the end of the day.
Gone the sun, night has come.
Day is done.

Cadence:
You had a good home and you left,
your right,
your left, right, left.

Ain't no need in looking back,
Jody's got your Cadillac.

Ain't no need in going home,
Jody's got your gal and gone.

GI beans and GI gravy,
Gee, I wish I'd joined the navy.

No more looking at a mule's ass,
Shine them shoes and polish that brass.

Of course, all of this is followed by the "sound offs" cadence counting, and "bring it on downs".

British Version
You;ve gota get up
You've gota get up
You've gota get up in the morning
Hands of co*ks on on with your socks
You've gota get up in the morning
