VERSE 01: Jimmy's mother went to see her son, marching along on parade;/In his uniform and with his gun, what a lovely picture he made./She came home that ev'ning, filled up with delight;/And to all the neighbors, she would yell with all her might:CHORUS 01: "Did you see my little Jimmy marching, with the soldiers up the avenue?/There was Jimmy just as stiff as starch,/Like his Daddy on the seventeenth of March./Did you notice all the lovely ladies,/Casting their eyes on him?/Away he went, to live in a tent;/Over in France with his regiment./Were you there, and tell me, did you notice?/They were all out of step but Jim."VERSE 02: That night little Jimmy's father stood, buying the drinks for the crowd;/You could tell that he was feeling good, he was talking terribly loud./Twenty times he treated, My! but he was dry;/When his glass was empty, he would treat again and cry:CHORUS 02: "Did you see my little Jimmy marching, with the soldiers up the avenue?/There was Jimmy just as stiff as starch,/Like his Daddy on the seventeenth of March./Did you notice all the lovely ladies,/Casting their eyes on him?/It made me glad, to gaze at the lad;/Lord help the Kaiser if he's like his Dad./Were you there, and tell me, did you notice?/They were all out of step but Jim."
