Dismayed, frankly, to read a recent thread where members posted the words to their favorite show tunes. Others added tired Monty Python lyrics and somebody even stuck in a Marlene Dietrich song.

I can see it now--a bunch of stubble-chinned Stafflen sitting around the ready room at Rhein-Main, sewing their chenille tutus for that night's All-Geschwader Talent Show. Or the 5699th Fitin'bitin'madjunkyarddogs at Duxford pulling on their lavender tights.

But we've got a new game (PF), a new theater, and it's time to start listing all those memorable, authentic, and utterly regressive songs those RL pilots sang.

I'd like to start the big ball rolling with my own personal favorite, "Miss VD of Guam." Everybody sing along!


We'd moored in Apra harbor,
We'd ducked our final bomb,
And that's where we were introduced
To Miss VD of Guam,

Oh didn't she ramble,
Ramble,
She rambled 'til the Navy cut her down.

She was the queen of the Chamorros,
The Marianas pride.
She didn't fornicate us all
But J**** how she tried,

Oh didn't she ramble,
Ramble,
She rambled 'til the Navy cut her down.

Her hut was in Agana,
It was mostly mud and grass,
But she made it seem like Heaven
With a wiggle of her a**,

Oh didn't she ramble,
Ramble,
She rambled 'til the Navy cut her down.

A simple plaque adorns her grave:
"Miss VD here was sunk.
Foundered off Guam Island
In a sea of Navy *****,

Oh, didn't she ramble,
Ramble,
She rambled 'til the Navy cut her down.


Would like very much to hear from Kiwis and Aussies the songs their boys sang in the PTO. And most of all, from the Japanese, when they were in their sake.

Cheers,

this isnt a song but more a jingle all alled pilots sung... just inserted thier fave plane and the country they were currently fighting against.

home home on the long range
where the nips and the cannon shells fly
where the mustang sure flips
with six guns on her hips
and yer quick on the draw
or u dieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee..

the other one is
its a european theatre one this

hitler has only got 1 b@ll
georing has 2 but they are small

My turn.

Fleet Air Arm ditty.

The official form on which to report an accident was the A25. Since most Naval pilots have completed at least one of these during their service, it is hardly surprising that the form figured largely in song and story. The chorus of the A25 song ran:

Cracking show! I'm alive!
But I still have to render my A25.

The verse were legion and varied from faintly respectable to downright obscene; but they were all uproariously funny. Since deck-landing alone accounted for so many reports on this form, the song narurally returned again and again to incidents on the flight deck.
For instance;

As I float up the deck and I see Wings frown.
I can tell by his look that my hook isn't down.
A dirty great barrier looms up in front-
Then I hear Wings shout-"Switch off that engine you...!

And again;

When the batsman gives 'Lower' I always go higher;
I drift off to starboard and prang my Seafire.
The chaps in goofers all think I'm green,
But I get my commission from Supermarine.

Open letter to a WAVE from "Every Inch a Sailor"
cant remember the guys name. I was a wee laddy.

If you're nervous in the service
and you don't know what to do
If you're weary and you're dreary
and you wish your tour were through
If you're hurried and you're worried
or you're feelin kinda blue.
Have a baby on me!
If you're tired of a two week vacation,
I can get you home for the duration.
You might get a bit distended
but your troubles would be ended
Have a baby on me!!

And one of my personal all time favorites:

Contact-Joy stick back
Sailing though the blue
Gallant sons of the 99th
Brown men tried and true
We are the Heroes of the night
To Hell with the Axis might
FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!
Fighting 99th

Rat-Tat, Rat-Tat-tat
Down in flames they go
The withering fire of the 99th
sends them down below
We are the Heroes of the night
To Hell with the Axis might
Fight! Fight! Fight!
Fighting 99th

Drink-k up-p, Dran your cup-p
To those daring men
(To those daring men)
Flying torch of flame
Oh GOD-D RED WHITE and Blue-
Amen

Rat-Tat! Rat-Tat-Tat!
Round in planes we go
When we fly, Ninety-Ninth
This is how we go

For-r We-e Ar-re-
Heroes of the ninth
To Hell with the Axis Might
FIGHT!, FIGHT!, FIGHT! FIGHT!
]FIGHTING 99th

FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!
The fighting Ninety-ninth
We are the Heroes of the night
To Hell with the Axis might
FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!
The Fighting Ninety-Ninth

We loop in the purple twilight,
We spin in the silvery dawn
With columns of black smoke behind us
To show where our comrades have gone

So, stand to your glasses steady
This world is a world full of lies;
Here's a toast to the dead already,
Hurrah for the next one who dies!

Above the jungles we ramble
Dodging black puffs of steel
For mortal stakes we gamble
With cards that are stacked for the deal
So, stand to your glasses steady,
This world is a world full of lies;
Here's a toast to the ones dead already--
Hurrah for the next man who dies

Denied by the land that bore us,
Betrayed by the ones we hold dear,
The good have all gone before us,
And only the hard are here.

So, stand to your glasses steady,
This world is a world full of lies;
Here's a toast to the dead already
Hurrah for the next man who dies.

Cut off from the land that bore us,
Betrayed by the land we find,
When the brightest have gone before us,
And the dullest are left behind.

So, stand to your glasses steady
Honor's all we've left to prize
A cup to the dead already!
Hurrah for the next man who dies.

We stand 'neath resounding rafters,
The walls around us are near.
They echo back our laughter;
It seems that the dead are all here.
Stand to your glasses steady!
We drink to our comrades gone by,
One cup to the dead already--
And Hurrah for the next man who dies!

My Dad has an old album ( I think it's a 33 1/3) of fighter pilot songs from WWII SOMEwhere.

I only remember bits of the songs.

Anyone recognise this:

Don't give me a Peter four oh
Don't give me a Peter four oh
It's a hell of an aircraft, I know
It's a ground-looping b@stard, you're sure to get plastered!
Don't give me a Peter four oh

or this one:

I'm the co-pilot, I sit on the right,
I'm skilled and I'm able and wondefully bright!
I'm a lousy co-pilot, and a long way from home



I don't even have a turntable anymore, so if I find the record, I can't play it! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Chuck_Older: the version I remember is this.

"Ugghhhhh" (clearing throat).

Don't give me a P-38
With props that counter-rotate
They'll loop, roll and spin
But they'll soon auger in
Don'it give me a P-38
No....

(chorus)
Give me operations
Way out on some lonely atoll
For I
Am too young to die
I just want to go home.

Don't give me a P-39
With the engine that's mounted behind
It will tumble and roll
And dig a big hole
Don't give me a P-39
No.....

(chorus)

Don't give me an old Thunderbolt
It gave many pilots a jolt
It looks like a jug
And flies like a tug
Don't give me an old Thunderbolt
No....

(chorus)


Don't give me a P-51
It was all right for fighting the Hun
But with coolant tank dry
You'll run out of sky
Don't give me a P-51
No....

(chorus)


Don't give me a P-61
For night flying sure is no fun
They say it's a lark
I'm scared of the dark
Don't give me a P-61
No...

(chorus)

And then your well-remembered lines about the Curtiss misfortune.

From somewhere in the RAF:

A poor aviator lay dying,
At the end of a bright summer's day;
His comrades had gathered around him
To carry his pieces away.

The aircraft was stacked on his wishbone,
His machine gun was wrapped 'round his head;
A spark plug he wore on each elbow,
It was plain that he'd quickly be dead.

He spit out of a valve and some gaskets,
And stirred in the pump where he lay;
To mechanics who 'round him came sighing,
These are the brave words he did say:

"Take the magneto out of my stomach,
And the butterfly valve off my neck;
Tear from my liver the crankshaft,
There's lots of good parts in this wreck.

Take the manifold off of my left eye,
And the cylinders out of by brain;
Take the piston rods out of my kidneys,
And assemble the engine again!"

My turn now, i'm sure you'll like it (i'm a romantic guy):

Chris de Burgh - Lady in red;

Never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I never seen you shine so bright
I never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
Looking for a little romance, given half a chance
I have never seen that dress you're wearing
Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eye
I have been blind

Lady in red
Is dancing with me (cheek to cheek)
There's nobody here
It's just you and me
It's where I wanna be
But I hardly know, this beauty by my side
I'll never forget, the way you look tonight

I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I never seen you shine so bright
You were amazing
Never seen so many people wanna be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled
You took my breathe away
I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love
As I do tonight

Lady in red
Is dancing with me (cheek to cheek)
There's nobody here
It's just you and me
It's where I wanna be
But I hardly know, this beauty by my side
I'll never forget, the way you look tonight

I never will forget, the way you look tonight
Lady in red
Lady in red
Lady in red
My lady in red
I love you baby
