GUEST,Edmund Cadence or Marching Songs (147* d) RE: Cadence or Marching Songs 30 Sep 04


Er, that was me signing on as guest. I also see that I didn't actually post the lyrics to "Our Sergeant Major" as I thought I did. Here goes:

1. Our Sergeant-Major jumped from 40,000 feet (3X)
And he ain't gonna jump no more

CHORUS:

And the Lord said,
Glory, glory what a hell of a way to die,
Glory, glory what a hell of a way to die,
Glory, glory what a hell of a way to die,
When your balls hang lower than your paratrooper boots (Or repeat "And he ain't gonna jump no more" if you want to be more polite)

2. He was the last to leave the plane, the first to hit the ground (3X)
And he ain't gonna jump no more

CHORUS

3. He landed on the runway like a little blob of shit (or "like a blob of strawberry jam) (3X)
And he ain't gonna jump no more

CHORUS

4. They scraped him off the runway with a little silver spoon (3X)
And he ain't gonna jump no more

CHORUS

5. They put him in a matchbox and they sent him home to Mom (3X)
And he ain't gonna jump no more

CHORUS

6. They put him on the mantelpiece for everyone to see (3X)
And he ain't gonna jump no more

CHORUS

7. Now he is a soldier in the Army of the Lord (3X)
And he ain't gonna jump no more
(I learned this last verse from a British unit at the Nijmegen Marches this summer)
