Standing tall and looking good
Ought to march in Hollywood

Hold your head and hold it high
___ Platoon is marching by

Close your eyes and hang your head
We are marching by the dead

Look to your right and whadta see?
A whole bunch of legs looking at me

Forty inches all around

Nine to the front, six to the rear
That's the way we do it here

Bravo on the GO

Marching down in the valley I heard a loud roar
It was a bravo trooper treating alpha like a toy
So put your feet on the peddle step down on the gas
Move over awful alpha let the mighty bravo pass

BRAVO COMPANY IS ON THE GO

Way down in the valley I heard a loud roar
It was a smooth bravo trooper treating Charlie like a toy
So put your feet on the peddle step down on the gas
Move over chicken Charlie let the mighty bravo pass

BRAVO COMPANY IS ON THE GO

Way down in the valley I heard a loud roar
It was a cool bravo trooper treating delta like a toy
So put your feet on the peddle step down on the gas
Move over dizzy delta let the mighty bravo pass

Momma Momma I
(Army Running Cadence)
 
 mama mama can't you see,
what the army's done to me.

They put me in a barber's chair,
spun me around I had no hair.

Mama mama can't you see,
what the army's done to me.

They took away my favorite jeans,
now I'm wearing army greens.

Mama mama can't you see,
what the army's done to me.

I use to date beauty queens,
now I love my M16.

Mama mama can't you see,
what the army's done to me.

I use to drive a Cadalliac,
now I carry one on my back.
 
 
 
Somewhere there is a Mother
(Army Marching Cadence)
 
Some where theres a mother
She's crying for her boy
He's and Airborne Ranger
With his orders to deploy
Don't you cry for him
He don't need your sympathy
He's an airborne ranger
Thats the best that you can be

Some where theres a father
He's crying for his son
Son's an airborne ranger
With a war to be won
Don't you cry for him
He don't need you sympathy
He's an airborne ranger
Thats the best that you can be

Some where there's a sister
She's crying for her bro
Bro's an airborne ranger
Thats the only way to go
Don't you cry for him
He don't need your sympothy
He's an airborne ranger
Thats the best that you can be

Some where theres a daughter
Shes crying for her dad
Dad was an airborne ranger
Now he's just a folded flag
Don't you cry for him
He wouldn't want your sympathy
He was an airborne ranger
Thats the best that you could be
 
 
 
YELLOW RIBBON
(Army Marching Cadence)
 
Around her hair she wore a yellow ribbon
She wore it in the spring time, in the early month of May
And if you asked her why the heck she wore it
She'd say she wore it for her soldier who was far, far away
Far away
Far away
She wore it for her soldier who was far, far away
Around the block she pushed a baby carriage
She pushed it in the spring time, in the early month of May
And if you asked her why the heck she pushed it
She'd say she pushed it for her soldier who was far, far away
Far away
Far away
She pushed it for her soldier who was far, far away
Behind the door, her father kept a shotgun
She kept it in the spring time, in the early month of May
And if you asked her why the heck she kept it
She'd say she kept it for her soldier who was far, far away
Far away
Far away
Join the Army
(Marching Cadence)
I don't know why I left
But I must've done wrong
Refrain:
And it won't be long
'Till I get on back home
Got a letter in the mail
Go to war or go to jail
Sat me in that barber's chair
Spun me around, I had no hair
Used to drive a Cadillac
Now I pack it on my back
Used to drive a limousine
Now I'm wearing Army green
Dress it right and cover down
Forty inches all around
Nine to the front and six to the rear
That's the way we do it here
Used to date a beauty queen
Now I date my M-16
Ain't no use in lookin' down
Ain't no discharge on the ground
Ain't no use in going back
Jody's got your Cadillac
Ain't no use in calling home
Jody's got your girl and gone
Ain't no use in feeling blue
Jody's got your sister too
Took away my faded jeans
Now I'm wearing Army greens
They took away my gin and rum
Now I'm up before the sun
Mama Mama can't you see
What this Army's done for me
Mama Mama can't you see
This Army life is killing me

They Say that In the Army
(Army Marching Cadence)
 
They say that in the Army, the chicken's mighty fine
One jumped off the table and started marking time

Refrain:
Oh, Lord I wanna go
But they won't let me go
(group ends this line with home,
stretched out over 8 paces, and a "Hey" on the right foot
to end the refrain)

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

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

They say that in the Army, the biscuits are mighty fine
One rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine

They say that in the Army, the meat is mighty fine
Last night we had ten puppies, this morning only nine

They say that in the Army, the shoes are mighty fine
You ask for size eleven, they give you size nine

They say that in the Army, the pancakes are mighty fine
You can try to chew them, but you're only wasting time

They say that in the Army, the bed's are mighty fine
But how the hell would I know, I've never slept in mine

They say that in the Army, the mail is so great
Today I got a letter dated 1948

They say that in the Army, the hours are just right
Start early in the morning and work on through the night

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

They say that in the Army, the coffee's mighty fine
It's good for cuts and bruises and tastes like iodine

They say that in the Army, the chicken's mighty fine
One jumped off the table and killed a friend of mine

They say that in the army, the toilets are mighty fine
You flush them up at seven, they come back up at nine.

They say that in the army, the tents are waterproof
You wake up in the morning and you're floating on the roof.
 
 
 
You get a line….
(Military Marching Cadence)
 
 You get a line and I'll get a pole          
Honey, honey                                     
You get a line and I'll get a pole         
Baby, baby                                       
You get a line and I'll get a pole         
We'll go down to the fishin' hole         

Refrain Honey, oh baby, be mine         
 ALL
Go to your left, your right, your left      
ALL
Go to your left, your right, your left, hey!

I had a girl who lived on a creek
Honey, honey
I had a girl who lived on a creek
Baby, baby
I had a girl who lived on a creek
She was cute and she was sweet

I had a girl, looked good in blue
Honey, honey
I had a girl, looked good in blue
Baby, baby
I had a girl, looked good in blue
She could make a fool out of you
