The Lyrics

Well Gooollllllllllllyyyyyyyy!!!
Get out of Mayberry
Head to Parris Island
Marching 'till I drop dead
And doing pushups in the sand

Sgt. Carter he can make it happen
Gonna turn me into a Marine
Shooting all these guns and then I'm
Cleaning the latrine

I am trained for fighting
Carter barks like thunder
Teaching me to swim
But my pack is going under

Sgt. Carter he can make it happen
Gonna turn me into a Marine
Shooting all these guns and then I'm
Cleaning the latrine

I'm just a Mayberry child
So polite, manners mild
But I have to try
Signed up but don't know why

I'm Gomer Pyle
I'm Gomer Pyle

Everyday I'm running
My uniform's squared away
Wanting graduation
Wanna be in that parade

Sgt. Carter he can make it happen
Gonna turn me into a Marine
Shooting all these guns and then I
Listen to him scream

I'm just a Mayberry child
So polite, manners mild
But I have to try
Signed up but don't know why

I'm Gomer Pyle
I'm Gomer Pyle

I don't know what's funnier, the thought of Gomer Pyle in a Marine uniform, or the other scene this song suggests, Pyle riding a hog through the Southwest with Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda!

Supraz, Supraz, Supraz, Gomer drop this lid of window pane, jump on your hog and ride with Captain America to the Mardi Gras.

Gomer Pyle in Easy Rider is like Barney Fife in a Nirvana song. Excellent writing and juxtaposition!

I can relate to this. My TI in USAF boot camp reminded me of Sgt Carter somewhat. Maybe it was that Smokey Bear hat he was wearing all the time and the genteel way he'd get in your face, literally, about 1/2 inch from your face. LOL. Fine parody. 5 "present arms" to you sir.
