Thread Name: Songs You Sing In the Shower
Subject: RE: BS: Songs You Sing In the Shower
My favourite song in the tub is a really sad squaddie song:
Do you see the cross in the cemetery,
Ornated with a Jager's hat? Most of the Companions are resting Of the 1st Jagers' Bataillon.
... and so on.
The syllable "Jä-" of "Jägerbateillon" is shared by 5 different climbing tones, then the rest of the song is falling to its end, giving a real sad howl. It echoes marvellously.
About lighting the bubbles: It shouldn't be done on dry ground, because it is very dangerous. A good friend, an old CSM, told me about his experiences as a young draftee: The guys used to light their farts lying on the bed, after lights out, and once one of them burned his pyjama and the hide below. So be careful.
