"Reveille" is a song played on a bugle in the morning by the military and by scouts at camp that means everyone should wake up. "Réveille" means "wake up" in French.

Usually the song is just played on the bugle. However, there are lyrics to the tune. Here's one version…

Notes

Version 2:

(Chorus)
I can't get 'em up
I can't get 'em up
I can't get 'em up this morning;
I can't get 'em up
I can't get 'em up
I can't get 'em up at all!

The corporal's worse than the privates,
The sergeant's worse than the corporals,
Lieutenant's worse than the sergeants,
And the captain's worst of all!

(Chorus)

Version 3:

(Chorus)
You've got to get up
You've got to get up
You've got to get up this morning
You've got to get up
You've got to get up!

Get up with the bugler's call
The major told the captain
The captain told the sergeant
The sergeant told the bugler
The bugler told them all.

(Chorus)
