Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Airborne Ranger Song (US Army 82nd)
Here's my version (what I can remember of this song)

I just died and went to heaven
On my way I heard this song
Now I know I can't go wrong

Two old ladies lying in bed
One rolled over the other ones dead
I wanna be an Airborne Ranger
Living the life of sex and danger

I wanna go to Vietnam
I wanna kill some viet-comms

I wanna go to Afghanistan
I wanna kill some Taliban

I wanna go to Israel
I wanna raise some airborne hell

I wanna go to the USA
I'm gonna get me a green berret.

Red light, red light, green at last
Open up the door and feel the blast
If my main don't open wide,
I've got another one by my side!
If that one should fail me too,
If my second don't open true
Well look out ground I'm coming through

With my rifle with my gun
I'm gonna have some shootin' fun
If I die in the combat zone
Box me up and ship me home
Pin my medals upon my chest
Tell my momma I did my best

I wanna be an airborne ranger
Living the life of sex and danger

Now I don't remember it all, but if I think of anything else I will post it.
