They Say that In the Air Force

Air Force Marching Cadence

They say that in the Air Force, the chicken’s mighty fine

One jumped off the table and started marking time

Refrain:

Oh, no I wanna go

But they won’t let me go

(group ends this line with home, stretched out over 8 paces, and

a “Hey” on the right foot to end the refrain)

They say that in the Air Force, the pay is mighty fine

They give you a hundred dollars and take back ninety-nine

They say that in the Air Force, the coffee’s mighty fine

It looks like muddy water, and tastes like turpentine

They say that in the Air Force, the biscuits are mighty fine

One rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine

They say that in the Air Force, the meat is mighty fine

Last night we had ten puppies, this morning only nine

They say that in the Air Force, the shoes are mighty fine

You ask for size eleven, they give you size nine

They say that in the Air Force, the pancakes are mighty fine

You can try to chew them, but you’re only wasting time

They say that in the Air Force, the bed’s are mighty fine

But how the heck would I know, I’ve never slept in mine

They say that in the Air Force, the mail is so great

Today I got a letter dated 1948

They say that in the Air Force, the hours are just right

Start early in the morning and work on through the night

They say that in the Air Force, the buses are mighty fine

One went round the corner, and left three wheels behind

They say that in the Air Force, the coffee’s mighty fine

It’s good for cuts and bruises and tastes like iodine

They say that in the Air Force, the toilets are mighty fine

You flush them up at seven, they come back up at nine.

They say that in the Air Force, the tents are waterproof

You wake up in the morning and you’re floating on the roof.
