Mama can’t you see?

Mama, Mama can’t you see?
What the Marine Corps’ done to me…
They sat me down in the chair,
When I looked up I had no hair

Mama, Mama can’t you see???
What the Marine Corps’ done to me…
I used to drive a Chevrolet,
But now I march around all day

Mama, Mama can’t you see?
What the Marine Corps’ done to me…
I used to drive a Cadillac…
Now I carry one on my back…

Mama, Mama can’t you see?!?!?!
What the Marine Corps’ done to me…
After I passed a real hard test…
They stuck a ribbon in my chest.

Mama, Mama can’t you see?
What the Marine Corps’ done to me…
I’m walkin’ tall and feeling good,
I’m doing things I never thought I could.
