Lighter K-K-K-Katy, who sings it?? (50) RE: K-K-K-Katy, who sings it?? 11 Aug 20


Marching versions, 1917-18:

K-K-K-K.P.!
Dirty old K.P.!,
Thatís the only army job that I abhor.
When the m-m-m-moon shines
Over the guardhouse,
Iíll be mopping up the
K-k-k-kitchen floor.

C-c-c-cootie!
Horrible cootie!
Youíre the only b-b-b-bug that I abhor.
When the m-m-m-moon shines
Over the bunk-house,
I will scratch my b-b-b-back until itís sore.


[K.P.: Kitchen police, i.e., assisting in the kitchen, peeling potatoes, etc.

[Cootie: louse.]
