Common Running Cadence

 

C-130 Rollin’ Down the Strip
C-130 rollin’ down the strip
64 Rangers on a one-way trip
Mission Top Secret, destination unknown
They don’t even know if they’re ever coming home
When my plane gets up so high
Paratroopers take to the skies

Stand up, hook up, shuffle to the door
My knees got weak and I hit the floor
Jumpmaster picked me up with ease
Tossed my knees into the breeze

Count one-thousand, two-thousand, three-thousand, four
My main opened with a mighty roar
But if my main don’t open wide
I got a reserve by my side
But if that one should fail me too
Look out below I’m a-comin’ through

If I die on the old drop zone
Box me up and ship me home
Pin my wings upon my chest
And then bury me in the leaning rest

Well if I die on a Chinese hill
Take my watch or the commies will
But if I die in the Korean mud
Bury me with a case of Bud

Saw an Old Lady
Saw an old lady running down the street
Had a cute on her back, jump boots on her feet
Said, “Hey old lady where you goin’ to?”
She said “US Army Airborne School”
“Whatcha gonno do when you get there?”
“Jump from a plane, float through the air”
I said “Hey old lady ain’t you been told?
Airborne School’s for the young and the bold”
She said “Hey young punk who you talkin’ to?
I’m an instructor at the Airborne School”

Saw an old lady marching down the road
Had a knife in her hand and a 90lb load
Said, “Hey old lady where you goin’ to?”
She said “US Army Ranger School”
“Whatcha gonna do when you get there?”
“Jump and swim and kill without care”
I said “Hey old lady ain’t you been told?
Ranger School’s for the young and the bold”
She said “Hey young punk who you talkin’ to?
I’m an instructor at the Ranger School”

Saw on old lady running down the track
Had fins on her feet and a tank on her back
Said, “Hey old lady where you goin’ to?”
She said “US Army scuba School”
“Whatcha gonno do when you get there?”
“Swim under water and never breathe air”
I said, “Hey old lady ain’t you been told?
Scuba School’s for the young and the bold”
She said “Hey young punk who you talkin’ to?
I’m an instructor at the Scuba School”

Up in the Morning
Up in the morning ‘fore dawn
I don’t like it, no way
Eat my breakfast too damn soon
Hungry as a hound dog by noon

Went to the mess hall on my knees

“Mess Sergeant, Mess Sergeant feed me please!”
Mess Sergeant said witha big ol’grin
“If you wanna be Airborne you gotta be thin”

Up in the morning at the break of day
Working so hard we never play
Running through the jungle where the sun don’t shine
All I do is double time

Airborne Ranger
Airborne Ranger raving mad
He’s got a tab I wish I had
Black and gold and half moon shape
Airborne Ranger, he’s gone ape

Jumpin’ through windows, kickin’ down walls
Airborne Ranger’s havin’ a ball
So if there’s trouble in the world today
Call on the men in the Black Berets

“A” is for Airborne
A is for Airborne
I is for in the sky
R is for rough and tough
B is for born to fly
O is for on the go
R is ranger
N is for never quit
E is for every day

‘Cause I’m Airborne
All the way
Super-duper Paratrooper

When I get to Heaven
When I get to heaven
Saint Peter’s gonna say
“How’d you earn your livin’ boy?
How’d you earn your pay?”
I’ll reply with a whole lot of anger,
“I made my living as an Airborne Ranger!
Blood, guts, sex and danger
That’s the life of an Airborne Ranger!”

When I get to hell
Satan’s gonna say
“How’d you earn your livin’ boy?
How’d you earn your pay?”
I’ll reply with a boot to his face
“I made my living sending souls to this place!”

No Sweat
One mile – No Sweat
Two mile – Better yet
Three miles – Gotta run
Four miles – Just for fun
Come on – Let’s go
We can go – Through the snow
We can run – To the sun
We train – In the rain
A-I
R-B
O-R
N-E
Can you be – Like me?
Airborne – Infantry
