The Lyrics

A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here. This can also be used to listen to a previous M&P parody, The Dead In My Bed - Necrophil'a
Nose-size overly vast hey?
And I'm Lebanese
Under dress, courting
Two hairy old knees
'Cus you know my wardrobe over here
Saw me dressed in a bra in Korea

Army life let me down
Don't like bullets around
So this khaki discard
And I go don a gown
No use being a Corp.
If I end up a corpse
My apparel is girlish I fear
I've hid in a bra in Korea

When O'Reil' left employ
As the company clerk
I'd promotion enjoy
Spite of costume-y quirk
And I bid you not think I am queer
Tho' attire is not Army gear

Potter bellows aloud from
The edge of his seat
Then enters Max
In a girdle, replete
With some hosiery filmy and sheer
As I look feminine in Korea

Bogus letters abound
Raisin' doubts all around
'Bout how family was dead
For the second time 'round !
It's the same ol' routine
Claimed demise of my kin
Did not help me get out of Korea
So I'll persist in flouting brassiere

Take some heels so high
And dress strapless and lithe
'Stead of army fatigues
I'll be fash'nably blythe
Yes my trousseau is very haute fare
I hid in a bra in Korea

Sidney could have allayed
Me from acting crazy
Although this Corpsman
Consumed Jeeps for tea
Said that's no reason to set me free-a
"You and lingerie must remain here"

Take a draft malcontent
In some garments distaff
Military vestments
All my skin it does chaff
Yes I'm clad kinda weird in Korea
I'm glib with my garb in Korea

Take a Toledo guy
Who is dressed like his wife
Section 8, it is why
I've got trouble and strife
Tip your hat now for Maxwell Q Klinger
Who hid in a bra in Korea
