Christopher Columbus

In fourteen hundred and ninety-two
a beggar bound for college
was roaming in the streets of Spain
and selling hot tamales

Refrain:
He said the world was round-oh
He said it could be found-of
The hypothetical navigating son-of-a-gun Columbo

Said Isabel to Ferdinand
his plan sounds mighty hazy
said Ferdinand to Isabel
I think the sucker's crazy!

     
 

Mama, Mama

Mama, Mama can't you see
What the Air Force done to me
Mama, Mama can't you see
What the Air Force done to me
Whoa, Whoa

Used to drive a Chevrolet
Now I'm marchin' everyday (Repeat)
Whoa, Whoa

Used to eat at Burger King
Now I drink from my canteen (Repeat)
Whoa, Whoa

Used to eat at Dairy Queen
Now I tote my M-16 (Repeat)
Whoa, Whoa

Used to drive a Subaru
Now I'm wearin' Air Force blue (Repeat)
Whoa, Whoa

Standin' tall and lookin' good
We should be in Hollywood

 

Here We Go Again

Here we go again
Same old stuff again

Marching down the avenue
Few more days and we'll be through

I won't have to look at you
So, I'll be glad and so will you

    
 

Air Force Pilot

Air Force pilot, Air Force pilot where have you been
Around the world and back again

Air Force pilot, Air Force pilot how did you go
In a C-130, flying low

Air Force pilot, Air Force pilot how did you get down
In an A-10 Charlie, big and round

Air Force pilot, Air Force pilot what did you do
I killed a commie for me and you

Air Force pilot, Air Force pilot how did you get back
In a black and gold body sack

 

They Say that in the Air Force

They say that in the Air Force, the chicken's mighty fine
One jumped off the table and started marking time

Refrain:
Oh, Lord I wanna go
But they won't let me go
(group ends this line with home, stretched out over 8 paces, and a "Hey" on the right
foot to end the refrain)

They say that in the Air Force, the pay is mighty fine
They give you a hundred dollars and take back ninety-nine

They say that in the Air Force, the coffee's mighty fine
It looks like muddy water, and tastes like turpentine

They say that in the Air Force, the biscuits are mighty fine
One rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine

They say that in the Air Force, the meat is mighty fine
Last night we had ten puppies, this morning only nine

They say that in the Air Force, the shoes are mighty fine
You ask for size eleven, they give you size nine

They say that in the Air Force, the pancakes are mighty fine
You can try to chew them, but you're only wasting time

They say that in the Air Force, the bed's are mighty fine
But how the heck would I know, I've never slept in mine

They say that in the Air Force, the mail is so great
Today I got a letter dated 1948

They say that in the Air Force, the hours are just right
Start early in the morning and work on through the night

They say that in the Air Force, the buses are mighty fine
One went round the corner, and left three wheels behind

They say that in the Air Force, the coffee's mighty fine
It's good for cuts and bruises and tastes like iodine

They say that in the Air Force, the chicken's mighty fine
One jumped off the table and killed a friend of mine

They say that in the Air Force, the toilets are mighty fine
You flush them up at seven, they come back up at nine.

They say that in the Air Force, the tents are waterproof
You wake up in the morning and you're floating on the roof

     
 

'Till I Get On Back Home

I don't know why I left
But I must've done wrong

Refrain:
And it won't be long
'Till I get on back home

Got a letter in the mail
Go to war or go to jail

Sat me in that barber's chair
Spun me around, I had no hair

Used to drive a Cadillac
Now I pack it on my back

Dress it right and cover down
Forty inches all around

Nine to the front and six to the rear
That's the way we do it here

Used to date a beauty queen
Now I date my M-16

Ain't no use in going back
Jody's got your Cadillac

Ain't no use in calling home
Jody's got your girl and gone

Ain't no use in feeling blue
Jody's got your sister too

They took away my gin and rum
Now I'm up before the sun

Mama Mama can't you see
What the Air Force's done for me

Mama Mama can't you see
This Air Force life is good for me

 
     
 

F-4 Pilot

My daddy was a pilot
He was a good one too
He flew the F-.4 phantom
He flew for me and you

CHORUS:
F-4 (SHOOT, SHOOT, SHOOT, SHOOT TO KILL)
Pilot (SHOOT, SHOOT, SHOOT, SHOOT TO KILL)

He flew in southeast Asia
And fought the Vietcong
They said he'd never falter
My daddy was so strong

CHORUS

He came in low and screamin'
He came in hard and fast
He took a direct SAM hit
His F-4 didn't last

CHORUS

My daddy is dead and gone now
He just a memory
He was the best example
Of what a man should be

CHORUS

 

Let 'em Blow

My recruiter said to me
Hey kid whatcha wanna be
I want a team that's tried and true
I wanna wear the Air Force blue

Refrain:
Let 'em blow let 'em blow
Let the four winds blow
Let 'em blow from east to west
The US Air Force is the best

The night was cold the ground was wet
They put us on a silver jet
And when the plane touched the ground
Air Force was all around

Refrain

We swore to God we would fight
For all we knew was right
God, Country, Family
We fought for our democracy

Refrain

And in the middle of the fight
I looked over to my right
There he lay on the ground
My buddy fell without a sound

Refrain

And when the battle it was won
Air For was number one
The the general bowed his head
For all the wounded and the dead

Refrain

Hold your head and hold it high
The Air Force is marching by

     
 

Somewhere There's a Woman

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

Refrain

Somewhere there's a father
His head is bowed in grief
His son was an Air Force pilot
And he died for his beliefs

Refrain

Somewhere there's a mother
Flag folded in her hands
Her son was an Air Force pilot
And he died for his land.

 

Old King Cole

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 Sergeants, three

I need a three-day pass said the Sergeants
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)

- Sergeants three
see above
- MTI's three
"File from the left, column right said the
TI's"
- Lieuies three (pronounced loo-ee)
"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,"said the Generals.
- Cadets three
"When do I get my check," said the Cadets.

My Granny...

When my granny was 91
She did PT just for fun

When my granny was 92
She did PT better than you

When my granny was 93
She did PT better than me

When my granny was 94
She did PT more and more

When my granny was 95
She did PT to stay alive

When my granny was 96
She kept on doing flutter-kicks

When my granny was 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!"

     

Miles

One mile
No sweat

Two miles
Better yet

Three miles
Gotta run

Four miles
To the sun

     
 

C-130

C-130 rollin' down the strip
Det 320 gonna take a little trip

Mission Top Secret, destination unknown
We don't know if we're ever coming home

When my plane gets up so high
Airborne troopers gonna dance in the sky

Stand up, hook up, shuffle to the door
Jump right out and count to four

If my shute don't open wide
I got another one by my side

If that one should fail me too
Look out below, I'm a-coming through

If I die in a combat zone
Box me up and ship me home

Pin my ribbons upon my chest
Tell my mom I did my best

 

Sittin' on a Mountain Top

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 darn 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.

    
 

These Boots Were Made for Walkin'

These boots were made for walkin'
And that's just what they'll do
If all you're doing is markin' time
They'll walk all over you

These guns were made for shootin'
And that's just what they'll do
Cause when they start a firin'
They'll drill a hole in you

This Air Force's trained for fightin'
And that's just what we'll do
Cause if you pick a fight with us
We'll drop some bombs on you

 

Wanna Be...

I wanna be an Air Force pilot
I wanna fly an F-15
I wanna ride with the canopy open
Just to hear those commies scream

I wanna be a navigator
I wanna back seat to the show
I wanna be a navigator
Tell the pilots where to go

I wanna be a missileer
I wanna live in a deep dark hole
I wanna be a missileer
Nuke those commies till they glow.
