Subject: RE: Jody's children - kids' rhymes from military c
As best as I can recall it:

Airborne, airborne, have you heard?
We're going to jump from the big iron [pronounced 'arn'] bird.

Stand up, hook up, shuffle to the door.
Jump right out and count to four.

If my main [parachute] don't open wide
I got me another one by my side.

If my reserve [RE'serve] fails me too,
Then look out boys, I'm a'comin' thru.

If I die on the old drop zone,
Then box me up and ship me home.

Pin my wings [insignia of a parachutist] upon my chest
And bury me in the leaning rest [the pushup position].
