Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Airborne Ranger Song (US Army 82nd)
As one of us had noted these song/cadences were more often used in the pre PC Army. In the early 60's our Drill Sgt would frequently get braced by the First Sergeant for singing rude cadences near family housing. Since there was some sort of family housing everywhere we marched, it cut his choice of lyrics by quite a bit. Some of this material may be on Lydia Fish's site at NY State University at Buffalo, or may be in the (Col)Lansdale works now in the Library of Congress.
