Lyrics By: Traditional
Music By: Traditional

I got my questionnaire baby, you know I'm heading off for war
I got my questionnaire baby, you know I'm heading off for war
Well I'm gonna kill somebody, no one knows what for

Well Uncle Sam ain't a woman, but you know he sure can take your man
Well Uncle Sam ain't a woman, but you know he sure can take your man
There's 45,000 guys in the service and hes got them doing something they just don't understand

Well I'm going to do some fighting, of that I can be sure
Well I'm going to do some fighting, of that I can be sure
Well know I wan't to kill somebody, won't have to break no law

I got my questionnaire baby, you know I'm heading off for war
I got my questionnaire baby, you know I'm heading off for war
Well know I wan't to kill somebody, won't have to break no law

This was played (without lyrics) with members of Hot Tuna on 11 November 1970
