US Army Cadences (For Running or Marching)
US Army Cadences for Marching or Running
MP, MP - Running Cadence

MP, MP, don't arrest me,
arrest that leg behind the tree,
he stole the whiskey,
I stole the whine,
we did this all at a double time,
cause we're hardcore,
lean and mean,
hard core,
fighting machines.

MOMMA, MOMMA...  - Running Cadence

Momma, Momma don't you cry
Your lil' boy's jumpin' from the sky
And Daddy Daddy, don't be blue
Cause your lil' girl wears a parachute
Those kids are allright
Fit to fight
They gotta go
Day or night

MISSISSIPPI TOWN

I KNOW A GIRL FROM A MISSIPPI TOWN
SHE SAID THE MARINE CORPS WAS GETTING HER DOWN
SHE SAID IT WAS EITHER ME OR THE CORPS
WELL I GUESS I WON'T BE GOING BACK TO MISSIPPI NO MORE.


LOCK AND LOAD  - Marching Cadence

Hi Ho Lock and Load
The sound of the Radar is loud and bold
14 Echoes are ready to roll
So early, so early, so early in the morning

Outta my rack at a Quarter to Four
The Captain yells We’re Going to War
Grabbed my ruck on my way out the door
So early in the morning

Grabbed my dispatch, grabbed my keys
A Tangos crying on his knees
The tanks are full, we’re heading out
So early, so early, so early in the morning

Emplace the Big Four there and now
The Launchers stuck I don’t know how
All Tangos do is drive and drive
So early in the morning

Prime Powers up, the Radars done
Echoes are out just having fun
The Chock Blocks (Tangos) are digging
The excitements begun
So early in the morning

Finally the launchers up
The fibers in, that’s just plain luck
The ICC is happy now
So early in the morning

Monitor both day and night
Blasting Scuds from left to right
14 Echoes lead the way
So early, so early, so early in the morning

When I Go... - Marching Cadence

When I go to bars
The girls they will say

How did you earn your living
How did you earn your pay

And my reply was with a cold kind of nod
I earn my living killing commies for my God

When I go home
The hippies they will say

How did you earn your living
How did you earn your pay

And I replied as I pulled out my knife
Get out of my way before I take yo' life




TWO OLD LADIES - Running Cadence

Two old ladies were lying in bed
One rolled over to the other and said
"I wanna be an Airborne Ranger
Live the life of guts and danger"
Guts and danger
Airborne Ranger

Same two ladies were lying in bed
One rolled over to the other and said
"I wanna be a scuba diver
Dive right into murky water"
Scuba diver, murky water
Guts and danger, Airborne Ranger

Same two old ladies lying in bed
One rolled over to the other and said
"I wanna be a mountain climber
Climb that mountain, higher and higher"
Mountain climber, higher and higher
Scuba diver, murky water
Guts and danger, Airborne Ranger
