Here's one I learned recently and can't remember all the verses. I'm of course putting in Air Force Huah! but you could probably swap it out for any other service...

They say that in the Air Force
The pay is mighty fine
Give you a 100 dollars
And take back 99!

They say that in the Air Force
The coffee's mighty fine
Looks like muddy water
And tastes like turpentine!

Some more stuff you can add to that one:


They say that in the Army, the *blank* is mighty *blank*
(Who said that?) <---------- (instead of repeating the line)

Hey, now I remember that middle part! We use both the chow verse and the next part but instead of drill sergeant we just say "they." I don't think I'll be using the other verse seeing as how I am a female...

The versus I alwasy knew were:

They say that in the army the food is mighty fine,
A chicken jumped off the table and started marking time.
They say that in the army the grub is might fine,
Some bread rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine.
They say that in the army the training's might fine,
Went to bed with ten and woke up with just nine.
They say that in the army the training's might fine,
A seargent kicked the bucket and now we're doing time.

I dunno. That's the way I've always known it.
