Air Scouts Song


He was flying a Flying Fortress at forty thousand feet

He was flying a Flying Fortress at forty thousand feet

He was flying a Flying Fortress at forty thousand feet

But he ain't gonna fly no more


Chorus:


Gory, gory, what a terrible way to die

Gory gory what a terrible way to die

Gory gory. what a terrible way to die

And he ain't gonna jump no more



He didn't see the fighters when they pounced him from the sun

He didn't see the fighters when they pounced him from the sun

He didn't see the fighters when they pounced him from the sun

So he ain't gonna fly no more


(chorus)


He heard a bang, the plane broke up and spread across the sky

He heard a bang, the plane broke up and spread across the sky

He heard a bang, the plane broke up and spread across the sky

And it ain't gonna fly no more


(chorus)


He jumped without a parachute from forty thousand feet

He jumped without a parachute from forty thousand feet

He jumped without a parachute from forty thousand feet

But he ain't gonna jump no more


(chorus)


They scraped him off the tarmac like a dollop of strawberry
jam

They scraped him off the tarmac like a dollop of strawberry
jam

They scraped him off the tarmac like a dollop of strawberry
jam

And he ain't gona jump no more


(chorus)


They spread him on a postcard and they sent him home to Mum

They spread him on a postcard and they sent him home to Mum

They spread him on a postcard and they sent him home to Mum

'cause he ain't gonna jump no more


(chorus)


They buried him in a matchbox at the bottom of the yard

They buried him in a matchbox at the bottom of the yard

They buried him in a matchbox at the bottom of the yard

'cause he ain't gonna jump no more


(chorus)


His ghost jumps without a parachute from forty thousand feet

His ghost jumps without a parachute from forty thousand feet

His ghost jumps without a parachute from forty thousand feet

And he's gonna keep on jumping evermore
