I wanna be an Airborne Ranger

I wanna live a life of danger…

Um. What are the rest of the lyrics?

And if anyone can fill me in on:

[sub]Sung to the tune of Battle Hymn of the Republic[/sub]
There was blood upon the risers, there was blood upon the chutes
Intestines were ‘a danglin’ from the paratroopers’ boots…

Gory, gory what a helluva a way to die…
Yes, I AM drunk. Why do you ask? :smiley:

I’ve never been in the army, so I don’t know if this is the “definitive” version. Jodis tend to change over time, and between services.

Do you remember the jodi they were singing in An Officer and a Gentleman? I found the lyrics to that one online, and man, are they brutal! Just the thing for an enemy to get ahold of so that they can say, “See? Americans are bloodthirsty murderers!”

I want to be an Airborne Ranger.
I want to live a life of danger.
I want to go to Viet Nam.
I want to kill some Viet Cong.

Heard that many times at Ft. Benning Ga.

I’m only sick and tired of one of 'em . . .

“C-130 rollin’ down the strip . . .” :rolleyes:

Way the hell sang too often. My particular favorite is:

*"Yer left, yer right, yer left, yer right, yer left, yer right to kill!
Yer left, yer right, yer left, yer right, yer left, yer right to kill . . .

I went to the playground,
where all the kiddies play.
I pulled out my M60,
and I began to spray!


I went to the pool,
where all the kiddies swim.
I plugged in a toaster,
and then I kicked it it!


I went to the college,
where all the people learn.
I ripped out a flamethrower,
and I began to burn!

(chorus) . . .*

You get the idea. . . :smiley:

I’ve been known to make up my own on a few courses, too.

Was someone watching Breakfast Club ?

Back in the stone age, when I was a Scout and attended summer camp at Yard’s Creek Scout Reservation, our version went like this:

Hey, what do you want from a bunch of 13 year old guys, Satre?
