Yellow Ribbon

Around her head she wore a yellow ribbon.
She wore it in the spring time in the merry month of May.
And if you ask her why the heck she wore it,
She wore it for that soldier who was far far away.

Far away, far away
She wore it for that soldier who was far far away.

Around the block she pushed a baby carriage.
She pushed it in the springtime in the merry month of May.
And if you ask her why the heck she pushed it.
She pushed it for that soldier who was far far away.

Far away, far away
She pushed it for that soldier who was far far away.

Behind the door her daddy kept a shotgun.
He kept it in the springtime in the merry month of May.
And if you ask him why the heck he kept it,
He kept it for that soldier who was far far away.

Far away, far away
She kept it for that soldier who was far far away.

A Recruiter Came To Me

Sitting around with nowhere to go,
you're talking to jane, your talking to joe,
and then my recruiter came to me,
say what you want to be.

I told him mean and lean and green.
I'll fight to keep my country free.
That is what I want to be,
Airborn Ranger Infantry.

Ho oh, ho oh.
You're sitting around with nowhere to go,
and then my recruiter came to me,
say what you want to be.

They put me on a silver jet,
that I know I won't forget.
They put me in a barber's chair,
spun me around, I had no hair.

Ho oh, ho oh.
You're sitting around with nowhere to go,
and then my recruiter came to me,
say what you want to be.

I told him mean and lean and green.
I'll fight to keep my country free.
That is what I want to be,
Airborn Ranger Infantry.

Hail Oh, Hail Oh, Infantry

Up in the morning, out of the rack.
Greeting the dawn with an early attack.
1SG rushing me off to chow,
but I don't need it anyhow.

Hail Oh, Hail Oh, Infantry.
Queen of battle follow me.
An Airborn Ranger's life for me.
Nothing in the world is free.

From a big bird in the sky,
all will jump and some will die.
Off to battle, we will go.
To live or die, hell I don't know.

Hail Oh, Hail Oh, Infantry.
Queen of battle follow me.
An Airborn Ranger's life for me.
Nothing in the world is free.

Early at night, it's drizzling and rain.
I ain't hittng and feel no pain.
But in my heart I have no fear,
because my Ranger god is here.

Hail Oh, Hail Oh, Infantry.
Queen of battle follow me.
An Airborn Ranger's life for me.
Nothing in the world is free.

The mortars and artillery,
the screaming burst around me,
jagged shrapnel on the fly,
kills my buddy, makes me cry.

Hail Oh, Hail Oh, Infantry.
Queen of battle follow me.
An Airborn Ranger's life for me.
Nothing in the world is free.

Pebbles and Bam-bam

Pebbles and Bam-bam on a Friday night,
trying to get to heaven on a paper kite.

Lightning struck (BOOM), and down they fell (AHHH).
Instead of going to heaven, they went straight to hell.

Dino the dog (RUFF RUFF) was on the bone (CHOMP CHOMP),
while Fred and Barney were at the microphone.

There was nothing that Fred or Barney could do
except sing "Yabba daba daba daaaaaba do!"



Yellow Bird

A yellow bird,
with a yellow bill
was perched apon
my window seal.

was perched apon my (STOMP) window seal.

I lured him in,
with a peice of bread
and then I smashed
his yellow head.

In the Army...

They say that in the Army, the chow is mighty fine.
A chicken jumped off the table and started marking time.

Oh Lord I want to go,
But they won't let me go.
(Chorus)Hooooooooommmme! Hey!

They say that in the Army, the pay is might fine.
They give you a hundred dollars and take back ninety-nine.

Oh Lord I want to go,
But they won't let me go.
(Chorus)Hooooooooommmme! Hey!

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

Oh Lord I want to go,
But they won't let me go.
(Chorus)Hooooooooommmme! Hey!

They say that in the Army, the food is might fine.
A biscuit rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine.

Oh Lord I want to go,
But they won't let me go.
(Chorus)Hooooooooommmme! Hey!

They say that in the Army, the trucks are mighty fine.
One went round the corner and left three wheels behind.

Oh Lord I want to go,
But they won't let me go.
(Chorus)Hooooooooommmme! Hey!
