My girl's a vegetable She lives in the hospital I would do anything To keep her alive (repeat last two lines at end of each verse) She's got her own TV We call it EKG When I wanna play a joke Pull the cords and watch her choke She's got no arms or legs That's why we call her Peg My girl ain't got no eyes just two sockets full of flies When I wanna play a joke Cross the wires and watch her smoke
Here we go again Same ol' stuff again Marching down the avenue (#) more weeks and we'll be through I won't have to look at you You won't have to look at me Sound off 1,2 Sound off 3,4 Bring it on home now 1,2,3,4,1,2..3,4!
The Air Force Colors (repeat this line for each verse) The color is red To show the world The blood we shed ...The color is white, To show the world, That we can fight ...The color is blue, To show the world, That we are true ...The color is green, To show the world, The war's we've seen ...The color is brown, To show the world, That we get around ...The color is black, To show the world, That we fight back ...The color is me, To show the world, That we are free ...The color is you, To show the world, That you are too ...Red, White, and Blue, To show the world, That we'd fight for you

Here I am before the sun Going on a ___ mile run Stretchin', yawnin', comin' alive I can do it, I got the drive Starting out slow keeping the pace Morning breeze blowin in my face Passing others watching me Wonder what it is they see Do they see my grief and pain They must think I'm insane Or do they see my will and pride Ain't no doubt I got the drive Breath deep, sound off, let em know We're on the move and rarin' to go First Shirt smiling as we pass by We're gonna show him we got the drive Picking up the pace and heading out For blocks around you can hear us shout Come run with us if you'd like to try One things for sure we got the drive If you want to keep pace with me There's one thing you've got to see Drive's important and will is too Makes me best at what I do
Just the other day I heard my CTO say Drive on Eagles..... Drive on Eagles! Drive on Eagles, Eagles drive on! Just the other day I heard the COC say If you wanna be Air Force, you gotta do it my way Drive on Eagles... Drive on Eagles! Drive on Eagles, Eagles drive on! (insert different OICs for each verse! Eagles was my flight at Tyndall I 96)
I don't know why I left But I know i done wrong And it won't be long Till I get on back home I used to date a beauty queen Now i'm flyin' F16s And it won't be long Till I get on back home Chorus Your left your right your left your right Your left your right your out of sight And it won't be long Till we get on back home All I used to shine were shoes Now i'm wearin' Air Force blues And it won't be long Till we get on back home We used to be home havin' fun Now we're here at Tyndall One And it won't be long Till we get on back home
When my granny was 91 She did PT just for fun 92 ... She did PT better than you 93 ... She did PT better than me 94 ... She did PT more and more 95 ... She did PT to stay alive 96 ... She kept on doing flutter-kicks 97 ... She up and died and went to heaven She met St. Peter at the pearly gates Said, "St. Peter, St. Peter, hope I'm not late St. Peter said with a big ol' grin "Get down granny, and knock out ten" She replied with a big ol' smile "Sorry, St. Peter, I'm on profile!"

Somewhere there's a woman She's crying for her man He's an Air Force pilot He does the best he can Refrain: Don't cry for me I don't need your sympathy 'Cause I'm an Air Force pilot And that's all I want to be Somewhere there's a mother She's praying for her son He's an Air Force pilot And his work is never done Somewhere there's a father His head is bowed in grief His son was an Air Force pilot And he died for his beliefs Somewhere there's a mother Flag folded in her hands Her son was an Air Force pilot And he died for his land
I hear the choppers coming They're flying overhead They've come to get the wounded They've come to get the dead Refrain: Air Force(shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot to kill) Pilot (shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot to kill) * My buddy's in a foxhole A bullet in his head The Army says he's living But I know that he's dead I ran to tell the C-O About my buddy's head But when I got there The C-O was dead And now the battle's over The smoke is all around We wanted to go home But we're six feet underground * In this refrain, the unit sings the words in parentheses at the same time that the leader sings the words in italics. The unit then repeats the leader's words in the normal manner.

Old King Cole was a merry old soul and a merry old soul was he He called for his pipe and called for his bowl and he called for his privates, three Beer, beer, beer said the airmen Merry men are we But none so fair that they can compare to the Air Force ROTC Old King Cole was a merry old soul and a merry old soul was he He called for his pipe and called for his bowl and he called for his sargents, three I need a three-day pass said the sargents Beer, beer, beer said the airmen Merry men are we But none so fair that they can compare to the Air Force ROTC * The cadence continues on in this manner, with a verse about a higher rank and repeating all of the ranks before. Eight verses are sung with these lyrics: (the cadet is added only if you want to) airmen three see above sergeants three see above MTI's three "file from the left, column right said the TI's" lieuies three "I'll lead the way said the lieuies" captains three "charge that hill said the captains" majors three "who's gonna shine my boots said the majors" colonels three "where's my star said the colonels" generals three "war, war, war" cadets three "when do I get my check?"

Around her hair she wore a yellow ribbon She wore it in the springtime, in the merry month of May And if you asked her why the heck she wore it She wore it for that Air Force pilot who was far, far away Refrain: Far away! Far away! She wore it for that soldier who was far, far away. Around the block she pushed a baby carriage... Around her thigh she wore a yellow garter... Behind the door her daddy kept his shotgun... In the church the preacher kept a license...

Sittin' on a mountain top, beating my drum Beat it so hard that he MP's come I said MP, MP, don't arrest me Arrest that leg behind the tree He stole the whiskey, I stole the wine All I ever do is double-time Up in the morning 'fore the break of day I don't like it, no way Eat my breakfast too damn soon Hungry as a hound dog, 'fore noon Up in the morning at the break of day Working so hard we never play Running through the jungle where the sun don't shine All I do is double time Up in the morning and out of the rack Grab my clothes and put them on my back Running cross the desert in the shifting sand Drill Sergeant, look, I'll give you a helping hand Up in the morning with a whistle and a yell I know that voice and I know it well Drill Sergeant says you better hit the floor And don't be walking going out the door I like women and I like wine But all I do is double time Double time here and double time there Man this life, it's the best anywhere

Way up north where it gets real cold The people there don't have any gold So they make their living Off the skins of baby seals But me I love the killin' Because it's so fulfillin' Oh how I hate to see a baby seal grow old! Chorus: Don't bludgeon a seal 'cause you need a meal Just do it cause you wanna hear that little creature squeal So kick it in the head And do it just for kicks And you poke it in the eyes with your eye poking sticks! My father he was really mean My mother just a bit obscene I guess that's the reason Why I feel the way I feel My kids and dog they hate me My wife she wants to leave me I guess i'll take it out on the baby seal! Chorus
