The Canadian Soldiers' Song Book/My Tunic is Out at the Elbows
36—MY TUNIC IS OUT AT THE ELBOWS
My tunic is out at the elbows,
My trousers are out at the knee,
My puttees are ragged and frazzled
But the Q.M. says nothing for me.
My Tummy knocks hard on my backbone,
My dial is thin as can be;
Still all we get handed at mealtimes,
Is bully and Machonochie.
