The Lyrics

Parody of a parody X56! The Rhodesian Sealous Scouts operated from 1973-1980 and in that time killed thousands of enemy insurgents, guerillas, and terrorists for a loss of only 40 of their men! Thier tracking, survival, and deep recce skills are regarded as the best ever on the African continent. Trained by an SAS leader and named after explorer Fredrick Sealous, only 10% of applicants were accepted and all were highly trained, including airborne-qualified for insertion. Masters of the bush they had no limits and could engage at will. They wore unorthodox non-standard uniforms- that which suited them best for operations and used any firearms they wanted. Although issued British FALs they usually aquired Soviet weapons for use since the ammo was plentiful in Africa. So they used AKs, RPKs, and RPD MGs most of the time. They were known for fierce fighting, stealth, and assassinations when necessary. They also gathered Intel and posed as Soviet and E German advisors. Masters of playing the game of deception. In one 1976 operation in Mozambique, 100 Sealous Scouts killed 600 guerillas out of a force of 5000 for no losses of their own! Sadly, they were disbanded when Rhodesia ceased. Many joined S African forces to fight ANC and SWAPO terrorists.
Sealous Scouts, we know, were best, Rhodesian, searchin’,
killed more terrorists than all others combined*
Fighting, best-known for stealth and deep recce tracking,
ZANLA and ZIPRA forces killed every time

(Best in the bush- work was clandestine)

Unorthodox style and issued with a Brit-FAL,
posed as Red or East German advisors- was smart
Infiltrate in disguise, fighting terror:
border nation camps were destroyed
Kill villains and Intel were other tasks
fought numerous guerillas and tore them apart

Red weapons in crates marked; Scouts took them- stocked up

Sealous Scouts were rough—which lead only to their fame
In fierce counter-terror battles they took part
Better than SAS, fought with honor,
1500 strong, losses rare
Few, the Scouts that died fighting terror
Experts in survival; Anti-Insurgent art

They operated in daylight or in the dark
When they would show, the guerillas would soon depart
and the Scouts would blow ammo dumps, hit armor parked;
scale of destruction was sign Scouts had left their mark
Attacking terrorists with a knife through the heart
Mozambique, Zambia, and Botswana- took part
70% insurgents killed set them apart…
* Sealous Scouts killed more terrorists than all other world Army forces until the US entered Afghanistan and Iraq using multiple SFs and drones.
