Running Cadence

    One Mile, No Sweat

    One mile no sweat,
    Two miles better yet,
    Three miles oh no,
    Four miles gotta go,
    Five miles, gotta run
    Six miles, to the sun
    Seven miles feeling good like I should.

    In my legs,
    In my head,
    In my chest,
    Feeling good,
    Super troop

    All the Way

    Here We Go
    All the way
    Everyday
    One mile--no good.
    Two miles--No sweat.
    Three miles--Better yet.
    Four miles--All the way.
    Five miles--Everyday.
    Six miles--follow me.

    Airborne!

    Seven miles--Ranger run
    Lots of fun.
    All the way.
    PT--So good

    C-130

    C-130 rolling down the strip,
    Airborne daddy's gonna take a little trip.
    Mission uncertain, destination unknown,
    Don't even know if we're ever coming home.

    Stand-up, Hook-up, shuffle to the door,  
    Jump right out and count to four.
    Slip to the left and slip to the right
    Slip on down to a firefight.
    Hit the drop zone with my feet apart
    Legs in my stomach and feet in my heart.
    And if my main don't open wide,
    I've got a reserve by my side.
    And if that one should fail me too,
    Look out below, I'm coming through.
    And if I die in the old drop zone,
    Box me up and ship me home.
    And if I die in the Korean mud
    Bury me with a case of Bud

    Bury speakers all around my head
    So I can rock with the Grateful Dead
    Bury speakers all around my toes
    So I can rock with Axel Rose
    Pin my medals upon my chest,
    And bury me in the leaning rest.

    Up in the Morning

    Up in the morning at the break of day
    Work so hard we never play  
    Run through the jungle where the sun don't shine
    And all I do is the double time
    Up in the morning and out of the rack
    Grab my clothes and put them on my back
    Run thru the swamp and up in a tree
    First sergeant chasing after me
    I like whiskey  and I like wine  
    But all I do is double time
    Up in the morning before the break of day
    I don’t like it no way
    Eat my breakfast too darn soon
    Hungry as hell by noon
    Went to the mess sergeant on my knees
    I said mess sergeant, mess sergeant, feed me please
    Mess sergeant said with a big old grin
    “If you want to be airborne, you got to be thin.

    When I get to Heaven

    When I get to heaven,
    Saint Peter's gonna say,
    How'd you earn your living boy?
    How'd you earn your pay?
    I reply with a whole lot of anger,
    Earned my living as an Airborne Ranger.
    Livin' a life of Guts and Danger,
    Blood, Sweat, Guts, and Danger.
    That's the way, of an Airborne Ranger
    When I get to hell,
    Satan's gonna say,
    How'd you earn your living punk?
    How'd you earn your pay?
    And I replied with a boot to his face,
    Earned my livin' laying souls to waste!

    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 pushups just like 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 turned 96,
    She did sit-ups just for kicks.
    And when my granny turned 97,
    She double-timed straight up to heaven.
    She met St. Peter at the pearly gate,
    Said, “Gee, St. Peter I hope I’m not late.”
    St. Peter said with a big wide grin, 
    “Drop down Granny and knock out ten.

    Two Old Ladies

    Two old ladies lying in bed,
    One rolled over to the other and said,

    That's the life of an Airborne Ranger.

    Up on a mountain top

    Up on a mountaintop, beating my drum
    I beat so hard till the MP's come
    I said MP, MP, don't arrest me
    Arrest that leg behind that tree
    He stole the whiskey, he stole the wine
    And all I ever do is the double-time

    Boo

    Had an old dog whose name was Boo  
    Boo wants to go to Scuba School
    Bought him a tank and four little fins
    And took him down where he got the bends
    Same old dog whose name was Boo
    Boo wants to go to Ranger School
    And so I took away his chow  
    I motivated his bow-wow
    Still got the dog whose name was Boo
    Boo wants to go to Airborne School
    Got him a chute, strapped it to his back
    Now Boo stands tall, and he looks strac
    That Airborne dog whose name was Boo  
    Got his orders for Jungle School
    Took him down to Panama
    And that's the last of Boo I ever saw.

    They say that in the Army

    They say that in the Army the chow is mighty fine
    Chicken jumped off the table and started marching time.

    O how I want to go,
    But they won’t let me go,
    Hooooome, ooooome, ooooome, HEY!
    They say that in the Army the coffee is mighty fine
    It looks like muddy water and tastes like turpentine.
    They say that in the Army the money is mighty fine
    They give you a hundred dollars and take back ninety-nine.

    Around her hair

    Around her hair she wore a yellow ribbon,
    She wore it in the spring time in the merry month of May,
    And if you asked her why the hell she wore it,
    She wore it for the soldier who was far, far away.
    FAR AWAY!
    FAR AWAY!
    She wore it for the soldier who was far, far away.
    Around the block she pushed a baby carriage...
    Behind the door her daddy kept a shotgun...
    In the church the preacher kept a license...

    Except sing "Yaaba, dabba, dabba, dabba, dabba doo."
