The Lyrics

During the Vietnam war I won the draft lottery and had no deferrments for military service - I was classified 1-A. I avoided the draft by joining the USAF. Thought this old anti war song was perfect for this parody.

Some mokes not sworn, they claim of fag,
Oh, they're read rights and shooed.
Then Uncle Sam came mail of great grief,
Ooh, appoint and command, you're screwed, word.

It cain't be, it cain't be, I ain't no war monger one, son.
It cain't be, it cain't be, I'll be a force of jet gun, yo.

Go folks air-borne, boot camp at Lackland.
Word, don't make shoots themselves, oh!
So when the draft man came to my door,
Word, my blouse looked that of Greyhound scale.

It's six weeks, just six weeks, I'll be a force of jet gun, yo,
In six weeks, in six weeks, I 'came a wing-a-nut one, oh!

Some folks had beared it; Scarred, mangled guys,
Ohh, You send our brass off to war? word!
So glad I asked them, for the chance to live,
Ooh, Peace turns a cancer, war! war! war!, yo!

So paint me, paint me, I 'came a military one, son.
It cain't be, it cain't be, I won draft lottery lost-won!
Ain't no be, ain't no be, I ain't no army of one, no no no,
It's plain see, it's plain see, I am a force of jet gun, yo yo yo.

Thanks Ann - I thought it was cool too. So glad there is agreement on this.

Merry - Stop nessin' around - I bet you tell Pip. that "he always says that." =;-) Not NESS--sariily. I finally got a eyeball on you and Pip on the a pic on the boards when he came to see you last year. I commented - Nice to put a face to the writers. You two looked soooo happy in that pic. And I feel privledged to be of service - you know I still am since I work directly for the US Army now so I've been in service 38 years next month. Military & civilian service. I feel pleased to be able to directly oppose those who wish us all dead and will-less. I'd rather be will-NESS. I will work as long as the good Lord gives me strength to carry on and do the fight. I have no plans for retirement as long as the world is in the situation it is in now. Thanks for being so sweet.

Alvin - this old airman renders a sharp salute right back at you. Thanks borther.

Much admiration for this parody, as for the men and women who have sworn to defend us. 555

I flunked my physical, whereas daddy got Dubya off and Cheney had "other priorities," such as FUBARing the country.
