Subject: BS: 6 Jerks In A Jeep lyrics

Looking for something else, ran across this just great song on YouTube. (Just type in Andrews Sisters for all sorts of fun songs and clips.)

Absolutely delightful clip from a movie with the Andrews Sisters singing it. But despite pillaging the Web, can't get all the lyrics.

Anybody else by some chance have them?

Can get most of the lyrics from listening--Andrew' Sisters' diction is excellent----just not all the lyrics.

Here's my transcription of the film scene at YouTube:


SIX JERKS IN A JEEP
As sung by the Andrews Sisters in the film "Private Buckaroo" (1942)
(Words and music by Sid Robin)

Beep, beep! Beep, beep!

Choo-choo to Broadway! Boo, Cincinnati!
In a jeep that was built for the six of us.
Beep, beep! Beep, beep!
This is a taxicab to Hackensack
We're goin' up to camp and back
An' we're ready.

We're six jerks in a jeep,
Six creeps in a jeep that leaps.
Now here we come, beep, beep!
We're six jerks in a jeep.

We're six WAACs in a hack,
Six WAACs here to send you, Jack.
Now look here, Max, no cracks!
We're six WAACs in a hack.

The jeep goes jumpin' an' a-bumpin' along.
Gonna knock you right off your seats,
Till we come rompin' an' a-stompin' a song.
Dig it with a reet beat!

We're six jerks in a jeep,
Six bleeps in a jeep that weeps.
Now here we go, beep, beep!
We're six jerks in a jeep.

The jeep goes a-jumpin' along.
Gonna knock you right off your seats.
Here we come, stompin' along,
Just a-rompin' along in our jeep.

Beep, beep! Toot, toot! La-da-da-da.
Beep, beep! Toot, toot! La-da-da.

We're six heels on wheel,
Schlemiels on a wheel that will reel.
We're lookin', lookin' for a meal.
We're six heels on a wheel.

We're six jerks in a jeep.
Six of us WAACs in a hack that will leap like a jeep.
Now here we come, beep, beep!
All heels, schlemiels, on a wheel that reels.

We're six jerks in a jeep, beep, beep, beep!
Six bleeps in a jeep that weeps.
Now here we go, beep, beep!
Here we go, all six jerks in a jeep.


[The Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC), formed in 1942, was renamed the Women's Army Corps (WAC) in 1943.]

Thanks, Jim,   Sorry I didn't get to thanking you earlier.   I think you've got 'em. Now I'm going to see if I can get the movie.   Should be intriguing to see how this song fits in--and if there are more in the movie.

I know! my grandmother use to sing this among many other Andrew sisters song and I have looked high and low in my fruitless search. how weird. I am starting to think maybe the lyrics have been pulled. maybe there is some political incorrect lyrics or something. I cant figure it. well.... I search on.

Here's the full song from an Andrews Sisters recording at archive: Six Jerks In A Jeep.

I've marked the changes/alterations compared to Jim's transcription from the film. In addition to the extra verses I've made a few minor alterations, also marked.

SIX JERKS IN A JEEP
(Words and music by Sid Robin)

Beep, beep! Beep, beep!

Choo-choo to Broadway! Boo, Cincinnati!
In a jeep that was built for the six of us.
Beep, beep! (ah-ah) Beep, beep! (ah-ah)
This is a taxicab to Hackensack
We're goin' up to camp and back
An' we're ready.

We're six jerks in a jeep,
Six creeps in a jeep that leaps.
Now here we come, beep, beep!
We're six jerks in a jeep.

We're six WAACs in a hack,
Six quacks here to send you, Jack.
Now look here, Max, no cracks!
We're six WAACs in a hack.

The jeep goes jumpin' and bumpin' along.
Gonna knock you right off your seat,
Till we come rompin' an' a-stompin' a song.
A-Dig it with a reet beat!

We're six jerks in a jeep,
Six gleeps in a jeep that weeps.
Now here we go, beep, beep!
We're six jerks in a jeep.

The jeep goes a-jumpin' along.
Gonna knock you right off your seat.
Here we come, a-stompin' along,
Just a-rompin' along in our jeep.

Beep, beep! Toot, toot! Lya-ah-ah-ah
Beep, beep! Toot, toot! Lya-ah-da.

We're six beauts on a scoot
That will root for my baby,
Beauts on a scoot that will zoot.
Now here we come, toot, toot, toot, toot, toot.
Six beauts on a scoot.


We're six heels on wheel, <va-va-va-veem-va-voodle-oo-za>
Schlemiels on a wheel that will reel.
We're lookin', lookin' for a meal.
We're six heels on a wheel.

The jeep goes a-jumpin' and a-bumpin' along.
We're gonna knock you right off of your seat.
Here we come rompin' and a-stompin' a song
Oh dig it, with a reet beat.

We're six blokes on a spoke,
Five blokes and a scary mokes.
And oh boy, how we broke.
Yes, we are six blokes on a spoke.

We're six jerks in a jeep.
Six of us WAACs in a hack that will leap like a jeep.
Now here we come, beep, beep!
All heels, schlemiels, on a wheel that reels.

We're six jerks in a jeep, beep, beep, beep!
Six gleeps in a jeep that weeps.
Now here we go, beep, beep!
Here we go, all six jerks in a jeep.

Thanks, Mick. This is just great.   What amazing lyrics.    Neologisms, slang, the works.

Pleasure Ron. I hope the version Jim provided from the film kept you amused for the last 21 months. Sometimes the mills of Mudcat grind slowly, yet we (more often than not) grind exceeding small!

As a side note, Shemp Howard of The Three Stooges starred in Private Buckaroo with the Andrews Sisters.
A major talent.
