A LETTER FROM MY RECRUITER

Air Force Marching Cadence

I was sitting at home watching TV
Drinking beer at a quarter to three
Up walked the postman and dropped the bomb
He handed me my letter from the Pentagon

My knees got shaky; I began to sweat
I knew they hadn’t started the draft up yet
I opened up the letter and what did I see?
A whole lot of big words I couldn’t read

This Air Force is supposed to be good for me
And so I went downtown to see
The Air Force recruiter said “Don’t despair”
Opportunity unlimited and treatment is fair

Pay is good, advancement is great
Get out of bed early, go to bed late
I mean what I say and say what I mean
Air Force life is the best I’ve seen
