Waist Deep in the Big Muddy

"It was back in nineteen forty-two / I was a member of a good platoon"
"We were knee deep in the Big Muddy"
"Sergeant, don't be a Nervous Nellie"
"The Sergeant said, 'Sir, are you sure / This is the best way back to the base?'"
"But every time I read the papers / That old feeling comes on / We're waist deep in the Big Muddy / And the big fool says to push on"
