Momma Momma (Marching Cadence)

 Mama mama can’t you see,

 what old ‘rot-see’ done to me.

 

They put me in a barber’s chair,

 spun me around I had no hair.

 

They took away my favorite jeans,

 now I’m wearing ‘rot-see’ green.

 

I use to drive a Cadillac,

 now I carry one on my back.

 

I use to drive a Chevrolet

Now I walk all the way

 

I used to drive a Subaru

Now I my feet are turning blue

 

I used to drive a limousine,

Now I’m wearing ‘rot-see’ green.

 

 

Way Down in the Valley

Way down in the valley
I heard a loud roar
It was the mighty Colonels, knocking on your door
 

The bus pulls up, the Colonels fall in

We’re ready to run, we’re ready to win

 

Way down in the valley
I heard a loud roar
It was the mighty Colonels, knocking on your door

 

We grab our ropes, we grab our shoes

We’re ready to run, until we’re through

 

Way down in the valley
I heard a loud roar
It was the mighty Colonels, knocking on your door

 

We run to the moon, we run to the sun

We don’t stop running, til our running is done

 

Way down in the valley
I heard a loud roar
It was the mighty Colonels, knocking on your door

 

Put your foot on the petal

Lay down on the gas

Move over little guys

Let the mighty Colonels pass

 

 

A Long, Long Time Ago

A long, long time ago

I heard it on the radio

It sounded so good to me

J – R – O – T – C

 

   Momma, momma don’t you cry

   The mighty Colonels are marching by

 

   Little boy, don’t be blue

   You can join us too

 

A long, long time ago

I heard it on the radio

It sounded so good to me

J – R – O – T – C

 

   Sergeant, sergeant did you know?

   The mighty Colonels are on the go

 

   Colonel, colonel we know you saw

   The mighty Colonels standing tall

 

A long, long time ago

I heard it on the radio

It sounded so good to me

J – R – O – T – C

 

   We’re standing tall and looking good

   We ought to be in Hollywood

   We’re feeling good deep inside

   Because we have that Colonel Pride

 

Black Hat

Everywhere I go

There’s a Black Hat there

Everywhere I go

There’s a Black Hat there

Black Hat

Imagine that

Why don’t you leave me alone

And let me go back home

When I eat my chow…

When I get out of bed…

When I brush my teeth…

When I comb my hair…

When I do PT…

When I go to class..

When I go to bed…

 

I Left My Home

Your mother was home when you left *your right!

Your father was home when you left *your right!

Your sister was home when you left *your right!

Your brother was home when you left *your right!

 

Your mother, your father, your sister, your brother, the dog, the cat, the fish, the rat, your aunt, your uncle, and both of your cousins, your papa, your granny, the maid, the nanny, they all was home when you left *your right!

And that’s the reason you left* your right!

They Say That in the Army

They say that in the Army the coffee’s mighty fine

  It looks like muddy water and tastes like turpentine

They say that in the Army the chow is mighty fine

  A chicken jumped off the table and started marking time

They say that in the Army the biscuits are mighty fine

  One rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine

They say that in the Army the training’s might fine

  Last night there were ten of us, now there’s only nine

They say that in the Army the pay is mighty fine

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

They say that in the Army the mail is mighty fine

  Just got a letter from 1999

I Hear the Choppers

I hear the choppers hovering,

They’re hovering overhead.

I heard there bringing Pizza,

and maybe garlic bread.

 

(chorus)

Caller: Dominoes

Soldiers: 30 30 30 minutes or less

Caller: Delivery

Soldiers: 30 30 30 minutes or less

 

A car pulls up your drive way,

It’s the pizza man,

I heard he has some thin crust,

and a deep pan

 

(chorus)

 

You hand him the money,

He hands you the food

You give a 2 dollar tip,

cuz the deliveryman isn’t rude

 

(chorus)

 

Running Cadence

 

 

When my grandma was 91

She did PT just for fun

When my grandma was 92

She did PT better than you

When my grandma was 93

When my grandma was 94

She did PT more and more

When my grandma was 95

She did PT to stay alive

When my grandma was 96

She did PT just for kicks

Hoo-rah grandma

She loves to double time

She does it all the time

Left Left Lefty right-o left right

When my grandma was 97

She up, she died, she went to heaven

When my grandma was 98

She meet St. Peter at the Pearly Gate/

She said St. Peter, sorry I’m late/

She went side-straddle hoppin’ through the pearly gate

when my grandma was 99

She did PT mighty-fine/

She had Saint Pete at a Double Time
