Lyrics

Here I am I'm having quite the fun Drinking wine Got the chicks on the run And just as I'm about To make a little sin The door's kicked open And guess who walked in Hey, hooray for The Salvation Army Band You know I love em But they just don't understand Hey, hooray for The Salvation Army Band You know I love em But they just don't understand They're trying to help the sinner And that's before the sin begins I was drinking hard I broke away again And it looked like The Devil was gonna win And just as I was taking My drink into drunkeness Guess who broke the bottle And said, clean up that mess

Hooray for The Salvation Army Band Playing that music, going around Doing the best they can I guess one day I'll be able to stick right with em But for this whole time I'm trying to get away from em I said for this whole time I'm trying to get away from em Get away from em I was broke My employment check had expired I took me a job stealing tires And just as I had four Nice ones stacked up in a pile Guess what music I heard And guess who came along And kinda give me a smile Hooray for The Salvation Army Band Playing that music And doing the best they can Hooray for The Salvation Army Band (Bringing in the sheaves Bringing in the sheaves We shall come rejoicing Bringing in the sheaves) Oh, help me Somebody please Stop this silly man Oh, take my hand Oh, my little chickadee I will abstain from all Intake of alcoholic beverages
