Quotes about barracks

Highway Patrolman

My name is joe roberts I work for the state
Im a sergeant out of perrineville barracks number 8
I always done an honest job as honest as I could
I got a brother named frankie and frankie aint no good
Now ever since we was young kids its been the same come down
I get a call over the radio frankies in trouble downtown
Well if it was any other man, Id put him straight away
But when its your brother sometimes you look the other way
Yeah me and frankie laughin and drinkin
Nothin feels better than blood on blood
Takin turns dancin with maria as the band
Played night of the johnstown flood
I catch him when hes strayin like any brother would
Man turns his back on his family well he just aint no good
Well frankie went in the army back in 1965
I got a farm deferment, settled down, took maria for my wife
But them wheat prices kept on droppin till it was like we were gettin
Robbed
Frankie came home in '68, and me, I took this job
Yeah were laughin and drinkin

Lili Marlene

(m. david/n. schulze/h. leip)
Outside the barracks by the corner light
Darling I remember how Id wait for you at night
There wed create a world for two, Id wait for you
The whole night through, was there that youd whisper tenderly
That you loved me, youd always be
Be my lili marlene, be my lili marlene
Id give you a rose to show I care,
And wind it through your golden hair
Then we would say goodnight and part,
Ill always keep you in my heart
With me lili marlene, with me lili marlene
My lili of the lamplight, my own lili marlene

I Want To Live In A Wigwam

Id like to live in a wigwam
Yes Id like to live in a wigwam
Id like to live in a wigwam and
Dance round the totem pole
Id like to live in an igloo
Yes, Id like to live in an igloo
Id like to live in an igloo and
Fish from an icehole
Id like to ride on a caravan
Id like to take a ride on a caravan
Yes, Id like to ride on a caravan and
Sing with the gypsies
Id like to live on a commune
Yes, Id like to live on a commune
Id like to live on a commune and
People can call me a hippie
I dont want to live in a palace
No, I dont want to live in no palace
Oh I dont want to live in no palace
Theres too many empty rooms

Sleep Of The Just

The soldier asked my name and did I come here very often
Well I thought that he was asking me to dance
In my holy coat and hat and him in his red bonnet
Wed have made a lovely couple but we never had the chance
[chorus]
And now you say that youve got to go
Well if you must you must
I suppose that you need the sleep of the just
Well it was a powerful day and there were black crows in the road
And I kept my strong opinions to my chest
I suppose I should have told them that I was on fire for you
When the bus burst into flames outside some place, the poets rest
[chorus]
A girl woke up in a naked light and said oh no not again
He even looked like her brother in the army but she never mentions him
Hell be tucked up in his bed tonight with his dirty-pictures girl
Saying, youre some mothers daughter you know or is it
Immaterial girl?
Now shes pinned up upon the barracks wall in her home town
All the soldiers taking turns with their attentions

Rec Room

[inspectah deck]
Oh, killah hill, killah killa hill
Killah hill, killah killah hill
Killah hill, killah killah hill
10304 style, kid, yea
For all my d.m.d. rec posse niggaz
You out there? is you out there?
I throw your brain in the cobra clutch, behold the hold rush
A dazzlin display if you could get close enough
Cold crush like the 4 stinger anaconda
Fierce darts thatll pierce through solid armor
Lounge in the barracks with blue and cappadonna
Spiderman identity peter parker
Crowd pleaser register off the meter
Vocal street sweaper bucks shots through the speaker
Pleasure seekers, 50 thou in the stands
True fans get it hot like jamaica sands
Conquer land, wide like a eagle wingspan
Clansman stabbin the track with both hands
Not a lost soul who falls for fools gold

This Is The Army Mister Jones

sheet music version:]
A bunch of frightened rookies were list'ning filled with awe
They listened while a sergeant was laying down the law
They stood there at attention, their faces turning red
The sergeant looked them over and this is what he said
This is the Army, Mister Jones!
No private rooms or telephones
You had your breakfast in bed before
But you won't have it there any more
This is the Army, Mister Green!
We like the barracks nice and clean
You had a housemaid to clean your floor
But she won't help you out any more
Do what the buglers command
They're in the Army and not in a band
This is the Army, Mister Brown!
You and your baby went to town
She had you worried but this is war
And she won't worry you anymore

Donald & Lydia

Small town, bright lights, saturday night,
Pinballs and pool halls flashing their lights.
Making change behind the counter in a penny arcade
Sat the fat girl daughter of virginia and ray
(spoken:)
Lydia
Lydia hid her thoughts like a cat
Behind her small eyes sunk deep in her fat.
She read romance magazines up in her room
And felt just like sunday on saturday afternoon.
Chorus:
But dreaming just comes natural
Like the first breath from a baby,
Like sunshine feeding daisies,
Like the love hidden deep in your heart.
Bunk beds, shaved heads, saturday night,
A warehouse of strangers with sixty watt lights.
Staring through the ceiling, just wanting to be
Lay one of too many, a young pfc:
(spoken:)

Byron

Canto the Ninth

I
Oh, Wellington! (or "Villainton" -- for Fame
Sounds the heroic syllables both ways;
France could not even conquer your great name,
But punn'd it down to this facetious phrase --
Beating or beaten she will laugh the same),
You have obtain'd great pensions and much praise:
Glory like yours should any dare gainsay,
Humanity would rise, and thunder "Nay!"

II
I don't think that you used Kinnaird quite well
In Marinet's affair -- in fact, 't was shabby,
And like some other things won't do to tell
Upon your tomb in Westminster's old abbey.
Upon the rest 't is not worth while to dwell,
Such tales being for the tea-hours of some tabby;
But though your years as man tend fast to zero,
In fact your grace is still but a young hero.

And on a Canadian set, everybody is equal. You get paid the same. You live together in barracks. You have a communal kitchen. You buy and cook your own food.

We had times in '66 and '67 when we would pick up a platoon of privates out of the receiving barracks the week before we even graduated the platoon that we were on!
