One I read:

"I wanna go to Vietnam;
I wanna kill a Vietcong;
With a knife or with a gun;
either way would be good fun;
stop em, bite em, kick em in the ass;
hide their bodies in the grass;
airborne, ranger, cib;
nobody gonna fuck with me;
but if I die in the combat zone;
box me up and ship me home;
fold my arms across my chest;
tell my folks I done my best;
place a bible in my hand;
for my trip to the promised land."
Link Posted: 9/11/2004 2:40:43 PM EST
The old favorite:

"C-130 rolling down the strip
Recon daddy gonna take a little trip.
Mission top-secret destination unknown
I don't know if I'm ever coming home.

Stand up, buckle up, shuffle to the door
Get ready to jump at the count of four.
Stand up, buckle up, shuffle to the door
Jump right out and shout "Marine Corps!"

If my chute don't open wide
I've got a reserve by my side
If that chute don't open round
I'll be the first Marine on the ground.
Yes, if that chute don't open true
Then look out below, I'm comin' through!

I'll spread hot lead both far and wide
and kill every commie in the countryside

If I die in the combat zone
Pack me up and send me home
Pin my medals upon my chest
Tell my momma I've done my best"

etc....

Irene, Irene, she's one of the best.
Last night I put her to the test.
I tried her up, I tried her down.
I even tried her upside down.
I tried her on her side, I tried her on her back.
I even changed her angle of attack.
Irene, Irene, she's the best I've ever had.
She's an Apache of the 6th Air Cav.



Up in the morning at quarter to four,
First Sergeant knocking down the door.
He had platoon sergeants all around his desk,
and a 2nd Lieutenant in the leaning rest.


Airborne Ranger, Airborne Ranger, where have you been?
Around the world and back again.
Airborne Ranger, Airborne Ranger, how did you go?
In a C-130, flyin' low.
Airborne Ranger, Airborne Ranger, what did you do?
I killed a commie for me and one for you.
Airborne Ranger, Airborne Ranger, how was it done?
One with my knife and one with my gun.



This one, I'll catch hell for:

C-130 rollin' down the strip
64 Rangers' on a one-way trip
Hit a little rock and did a flip
64 Rangers' burnt to a crisp.


Then, there's the old-school favorites:

Hey, hey Captain Jack
Meet doawn by the railroad track
With this rifle in my hand,
I'm gonna be a shootin man
A shootin man

Hey, hey Captin Jack
Meet me down by the railroad track
With this knife in my hand
I'm gonna be a stabbin man,
a shootin man

Hey, hey Captain Jack
Meet me down by the railroad track
with this bottle in my hand
I'm gonna be a drinkin man
a stabbin man
a shootin man

Hey, hey Captian Jack
Meet me down by the railroad track
with this woman in my hand,
I'm gonna be a lovin man
a drinkin man
a stabbin man
a shootin man



I used to drive a Cadillac,
Now I hump it on my back
I used to date a beauty queen,
Now I date my M-16
I used to wear my faded jeans,
Now I'm wearin Army greens



They say that in the Army, the chow is mighty fine
(who says that?)
A chicken jumped off the table and started marking time

They say that in the Army, the chow is mighty fine
(Who says that?)
A biscuit rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine

They say that in the Army, the coffee is mighty fine
(Who says that?)
It looks like muddy water and tastes like turpentine

They say that in the Army, the women are mighty fine
(Who says that?)
They look like Phyllis Diller and walk like Frankenstein

They say that in the Army, the pay is mighty fine
(Who says that?)
They give you a hundred dollars and take make 99.

M24 is a hell of a gun....with it you can reach out and touch someone............... had a former Army Sniper in my police academy that liked to sing that one while we were running past the local liberal hangout.

Then there's stabbing and a jabbing, shooting and a scooting...all at double time.........



Ones I hate:

Tiny Bubbles in my beer, makes me happy.......................................

When that left foot hits the ground I want to hear that clapping sound.............

The stupid frog on a log on log in a hole in the hole in the bottom of the ocean...........................it's interesting the first time you hear it but starts to grate on you half way into a 17k ruck march in 95 degree plus weather....

The lyrics from Warren Zevon's "Jungle Work" makes a great running jodie. It was real popular when I was a Company Commander and during Bn officers PT I was often called out for it.

I did change one stanza though. I had them HALO in and SCUBA out. I think Warren's lyrics have them parachuting in and out. I never could figure out how to parachute out of a place. But I'm sure SF Chris knows how to do that too.

Two variations of the same cadence:

Jesse James said before he died
there's 4 things he wanted to ride
a bicycle, tricycle, automobile
a LEG's old lady while he's in the field


Jesse James said in his will
there's 5 thing that he wanted to kill
a lion, tiger, kangaroo, a long haird hippie and Jane Fonda too
and if he could only kill just one
he'd kill Jane Fonda and let the long hair run

Up from a sub sixty feet below,
SCUBA to the surface and I'm ready to go.

Let me feel that leather glove
Walk spike heels up and down my back
Fishhooks through my scrotum sack
Whips and chains now they're a blast
C'mon baby spank my ass....

See that commie on the hill?
He's the little sumbitch that i gotta kill
And if my M-16 won't do
I'll smoke him with some 762
Bite, kick, stomp his face,
Strangle him with my bootlace
And if he's still a fighting fool
I'll do him with my entrenching tool

Charging up the hill AG by my side
Feeding the rounds That i kill by

Load another magazine,

Cuz all I ever wanna see!
Is bodies, bleeding bodies.

Throw another hand grenade!
Should have seen the mess I made.
Cuz all I ever wanna see,
Is bodies, broken bodies.

Stab em with the bayonet!
If he squirms you're not done yet!
Cuz all I ever wanna see,
Is bodies, cut-up bodies.

Call some more TACAIR.
On that bunker over there.
Cuz all I ever wanna see,
Is bodies burnin bodies!



I went down to see the man
He gave me orders for the desert sand

I packed up my weapon, I packed up my ruck
They threw me in this 5 ton truck

As I look out with a glassy glare
The next think I know I'm in the air

When we land it's dark and warm
They tell me I'm at the Desert Storm

For the next six months this in your home
No running water no telephone

Saddam Hussein he said to me
I want to be all I can be

I'll pack you're weapon, I'll pack you're ruck
As for Iraq I don't give a damn (hmmm)

I had a TAC officer suggest to me that the "yellow bird with a yellow head" cadence was unnaccpetable because of the reference to squashing its head. Pfft.

This one pretty much sums up the PC-quality of the cadences I'm allowed to do:

Remember JFK
He tried to lead the way
but he was shot one day
early one morning
It's alright, it's alright
It's alright, it's OK
I've seen better days

Remember MLK
You know he paved the way
but was shot one day
early one morning
but it's alright, it's alright
it's alright, its's OK
I've seen better days

But I added an homage to a drill sergeant of mine that had actually been shot and killed on a Sunday morning while I was at BCT. It made the cadence a little better, IMHO.



As far as "Tiny Bubbles", +1 for hating it.

This is the military / vet / hero forum - I don't shy away from military cadences. That was part of our everyday lives in the service to our country. Are we to be ashamed of something that was so richly promoted?

I think not, sir. Have at it.

Yeah, when my Drill Sergeant sang that one back in 1982 it warped my appreciation of cadences.....

I got bitched out at PLDC for calling this one-last time I had to serve directly with females, thank God...

My girls a vegetable
She lives in a Hospital

Chorus-
I'd buy her anything
To keep her alive

Refrains-
She's got no arms or legs
Just got four wooden pegs

She's got no hair at all
Looks like a big cue ball

My baby's got no eyes
Just two holes I sodomize

My girl has got no ears
But her flat head's just right for beers

My gal has got no tits
Just two bumps that look like zits

Then one day my baby died
And how I cried and cried
Cause I spent a million bucks
To keep her alive


Running
UH 60 sitting on the strip
Air Assault Recon gonna take a little trip
Mission top secret destination unknown
30 miles north of Pan Mun Jom

Stand up hook up lean into an "L"
Bound right out and you're on rappel
Slide to my left, slide to my right
Rappel right into a firefight.......


and another that a buddy made up about a real incident, in tribute to "Whacking Worrel", the bunker spunker....

Madsen and Madieres walked into the john
Caught Sergeant Worrel playing with his dong......wish I could remember the rest.

We used to sing that all over Camp Hovey.............lol


We also had a corporal who had NO rythm.

He was a bad motherfucker, you could tell by his clothes

He had diamond rings and a Stetson hat
Had a lot of furs and a Cadillac

He lined a hundred women up against the wall
Bet me a hundred dollars he could fuck 'em all

Fucked ninety-eight til his balls turned blue
Backed off, whacked off and fucked the other two

Born in the woods
Raised by a bear,
Double set of dog teeth
Triple coat of hair,
Two magazines,
And my M16,
I'm lean and mean,
I'm a US Marine!

and

I paint my face black and green
you won't see me I'm a US Marine
I slip and slither into the night
You wont see me till I'm ready to fight
You'll run to the forest, you'll try to hide
but that's where I live you're sure to die
you won't see me till it's too damned late
a flash of my blade will be your fate...

and

Hey there Navy
Get off your ship and follow me
I am the Marine Corps Infantry
Hey there Army...
Get off your tank and follow me
I am Marine Corps infantry!
Hey there Air Force
Get off that plane and follow me
I am the Marine Corps infantry
Hey there civilians
Get off your butts and follow me
I am the MArine Corps cant you see?
We are the best on land and sea...

and

Army, Army I'm in doubt...
Why's your belly stickin out?
Is it whisky or is it wine?
Or is it a lack of PT time?

and

One, two, three, Four!
What the hell we doing this for?
we're doin it for the next war,
between the commies and the Corps
Am I right or wrong? You're Right!
Are we weak or strong? We're Strong!

Mama told Johnny not to go down town,
cause the Marine Corps recruiter was hangin around
Johnny disobeyed and he went anyway,
to hear what the recruiter had to say,
The recruiter asked Johnny what he wanted to be,
Johnny said I wanna join the infantry
Johnny caught a plane out to Vietnam
There Johnny fought the Viet Cong
He killed a hundred men with his rifle and blade
Only God knows how many lives he saved
Johnny was bold and he was brave
Johnny jumped on a hand grenade,
He saved the lives of the men he led
But now poor Johnny he was dead.
Before He died this what he said
to tell his mama when he was dead
Mama, Mama dont you cry
In the ma Marine Corps you do or die.

and

If I die in a combat zone
box me up and send me home
pin my medals upon my chest
tell me mom I did my best
Lay my body six foot down
till you hear it hit the ground
Place my K-Bar in my hand
I'll fight my way to the promised land.
and when I get to heaven
St Peter he will say
How'd you get to heaven in just one day?
I replied with hate and anger...
Blood Guts and a whole lot o'danger.

Ooh Rah!
