What Can You Do With A General Lyrics

A musical based on the classic 1954 film of the same name
Irving Berlin's White Christmas the Musical - What Can You Do With A General Lyrics

MARTHA:
WHEN THE WAR WAS OVER
THERE WERE JOBS GALORE
FOR THE GI JOSEPHS
WHO ERE IN THE WAR
BUT FOR GENERALS THINGS WERE NOT SO GRAND
AND IT’S NOT SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND.

BOB:
WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH A GENERAL
WHEN HE STOPS BEING A GENERAL?
OH, WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH A GENERAL
WHO RETIRES.

PHIL:
WHO’S GOT A JOB FOR A GENERAL
WHEN HE STOPS BEIN’ A GENERAL

BOB & PHIL:
THEY ALL GET A JOB BUT A
GENERAL NO ON HIRES.

MARTHA:
HE WALKS INTO AN OFFICE
IN ANSWER TO AN AD
HE’LL TAKE THE JOB THAT’S OFFERED
THE PAY IS NOT TOO BAD

THEY ASK HIS LATEST POSITION
HE ANSWERS WITH A PUNCH
"I WAS A GENERAL"
AND THEY ASK HIM OUT TO LUNCH

BOB: AND HE HAS TO MEET THE MOB

MARTHA: BUT HE DOESN’T GET THE JOB

PHIL:
NOBODY THINGS OF ASSIGNING HIM
WHEN THEY’VE STOPPED WINING AND DINING HIM.

BOB:
IT SEEMS THIS COUNTRY NEVER HAS ENJOYED
SO MANY ONE...

PHIL: AND TWO...

MARTHA: AND THREE...

ALL THREE: AND FOUR STAR GENERALS UNEMPLOYED.

BOB & PHIL:
WE’LL TAKE THE JOB OF ASSIGNING HIM
LET’S START WINING AND DINING HIM.
BECAUSE THIS COUNTRY NEVER HAS ENJOYED
SO MANY ONE-AND-TWO-AND THREE-
AND FOUR-STAR GENERALS UNEMPLOYED.

BUT WE’VE GOT A JOB FOR A GENERAL
WHO’S RETIRED!
