The lyrics are ever changing
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 Free lead Sheets.)
I'm betting both girls and boys will have fun with this energetic song.
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":
