The U.S. army song has been around for a long time, and the song lyrics have changed a bit with the times. The Caisson Song lyrics I have on my free sheetmusic are the words I remember from when I was a girl; but notice that there are lots more verses in this rousing rendition of the army theme song below:

I have had good luck using this song as a piano lead sheet, asking students to add simple left hand chords using root chords and inversions. (See examples of this down at the bottom of my page Lead Sheets.) I'm betting some of your boy students would like it, too!
Here is another video of the Army theme song, also very well sung by a group of well-matched men's voices. Here, they call the song "The Army Goes Rolling Along":

Carrie,Voice and Piano Teacher:
This site is FABULOUS. For all the reasons you explain on the site itself--this is exactly what piano teachers need! (I still need to go look at the vocal music). Wow. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I am a first-time piano teacher and have been combing the internet for resources. Your wonderful site has been an amazing resource for both my students and myself. Thank you so much for the printable scales, chords, and ideas! We are so grateful!
Hi! Your website is just perfect for me, a beginning piano teacher, and just now responding to a request for guitar lessons...
I think this site is wonderful! Well done. I am a 14 yr old 'ocarinist' and this site has been ever so useful in helping me find some simple tunes to play on my ocarina. I am also planning to learn to the piano soon and already play the clarinet. As I said, this site has been incredibly useful and my friend and I are going to try our Music badge for guides so finding the music for 'Taps' was essential. Thank you for making such an amazing site!

Thank you so much for all the information and materials! Your site is very thorough and well organized! I am a piano teacher in New Orleans, LA and in the process of putting together my own curriculum and recordings. You have inspired me to make my materials available to all online!
