Now if you got a lovin' man you gotta love him while you can
Perhaps he'll have to do his share to help defend this dear old land.
They're drafting many men right now to give democracy a hand,
Before they call your man I'll say, these words you ought to understand.

When Uncle Sam calls out your man
Don't sigh, don't cry, because you know he can't refuse.
To hold him back might make him slack.
Just say you got those draftin' blues.
