Irving Berlin

Irving Berlin (born Israel Isidore Baline, May 11, 1888 – September 22, 1989) was an American composer and lyricist widely considered one of the greatest songwriters in American history.

Born in Russia, Berlin arrived in the United States at the age of five. He published his first song, “Marie from Sunny Italy”, in 1907, for which he received 33 cents for the publishing rights. He had his first major international hit in 1911 with “Alexander’s Ragtime Band”: a song that sparked an international dance craze as far away as Russia.

During his sixty-year career, he wrote an estimated 1,500 songs, including the scores for 19 Broadway shows and 18 Hollywood films, and was nominated eight times for Academy Awards. Many artists have recorded his songs (we’ve linked their names below)

This Is The Army Mr Jones

A bunch of frightened rookies were list’ning filled with awe
They listened while a sergeant was laying down the law
They stood there at attention, their faces turning red
The sergeant looked them over and this is what he said

This is the army, Mister Jones
No private rooms or telephones
You had your breakfast in bed before
But you won’t have it there any more
This is the army, Mister Green

We like the barracks nice and clean
You had a housemaid to clean your floor
But she won’t help you out any more
Do what the buglers command

They’re in the army and not in a band
This is the army, Mister Brown
You and your baby went to town
She had you worried but this is war
And she won’t worry you anymore
