The Lyrics

Click here for Heartbreak Ridge Movie home page and trailers Click here for Heartbreak Ridge Wikipedia Info If you don't support the war, please respect and support the troops. They sacrifice for the good of the rest of us. Please display graitude or keep your thoughts about them to yourself. They serve and protect and go where they are told even if they are told to go there and die. Been there, done that and even got a tee-shirt or two along the way. If you must display your distaste for the war effort please direct your ire toward our nation's leadership, law makers and judicial officials. They are the ones in control not the troops. This parody author is USAF Retired.

An old time piece grindin' on whiny toads,
Highway's his name; Does not seem sane.
Not a freakin' nerd and his name means road,
His claim to fame; De-lame's his game.
Dirty Harry played him he on some other gig,
But he's formin' a team that won't renege.
Mowin' 'em down, it's Highway,
Strollin'? not on this Highway,
Get out the lead or kiss your a$$ goodbye.

Got 'bout ten men pisselin' as they cry,
They march along to their own song.
Gonna whipper their will 'til they must comply,
They'll go along, to Highway's song.
Or he'll bury them swiftly L-T Ring has vowed,
NOT gettin' 'em nowhere, Marine Corps proud.
Doin' it. he says my way,
Do it or hit the highway!
One step ahead he stays this Highway guy.

Off they go to set some free,
"Where'd you school at?" had asked the young L-T.
There at Chosin, Heart-break bad dream. [1]
As he changed their minds, they soon changed their cree,
They charged and screamed, on that regime.
Oh, how they did dare it as they pulled on through,
Chargin' off with Highway and wrecking crew.
He said they'd do it my way,
That Gunny Sergeant Highway,
Makin' 'em dread they're lives they pass on by.

Nov. 8, 2007 2:30 PM AMC Favorite lines from the flick: This is the AK-47 assault rifle, the preferred weapon of your enemy; and it makes a distinctive sound when fired at you, so remember it. If you pull another sh*head stunt like that again, the only thing that'll beat you to the hospital is the headlights on the ambulance you'll be riding in. [1] Chosin – Pronounce as Cho-Seen

This is the .555 calibre vote. It is the preferred vote of your reader. It has a distinctive look. Get to know it, because you will be on the receiving end of many of them, esp. with lines like :whipper their will". Excellent invasion strategy, to have chosen such a lame target and to have fired such well-guided missiles as "Highway/highway" A medal for your mettle.
BR> p. s. Our politicians screw up big-time, repeatedly, but our troops are the best in the world.

TT - Hoorah! Sir! We adapt, we improvise, we overcome - We're Marines. Saw a sign outside a gay bar once - It said, we're looking for a few good men. It was a Marine Corps recruiting office that was in proximity of a gay bar. alvin - Thanks you know that was a ref. to the AK47 scene. Thanks AFW - I liked your parody today as well. I left a wordy comment.

Forgot to mention - A special thanks to the "anonomous" voter who did not leave a comment. This author is an equal opportunity bestower of gratitude.
