Roy Rooster

  • I didn’t wake ‘em up this morning like I’m supposed to do,
  • I got to do my job, or they'll find someone new,
  • I used to wake 'em up at dawn’s early light,
  • Using bells, and buzzers, even dynamite!
  • They said “No! Stop that noise!”,
  • Then I found a finer way to wake the boys,
  • I’m so cool, I’m so hip,
  • Since I got my bugle, call me Mister Lip!
  • You want to wake up in the morning, that’s what you say,
  • Then wake up to the bugle music that I play,
  • I love to get you up with this horn blown blues,
  • It’s a whole lot hotter than cock-a-doodle-doos,
  • I can blow, I can play,
  • I can wake you up swinging every day,
  • I play blues, I play swing,
  • I love to play my bugle man, that’s my thing!
