Air Force 801 Listen to the rumble, and hear old Merlin roar l'm flying over Moji, like I never flew before Hear the mighty rush of the slipstream, and hear old Merlin moan, I'II wait a bit and say a prayer and hope it gets me home. Itazuke tower, this is Air Force 801 l'm turning on the downwind leg, my prop has overrun My coolant's overheated, the gauge says 1-2-1 You'd better call the crash crew, and get them on the run. Air Force 801, this is Itazuke tower I cannot call the crash crew, this is their coffee hour You're not cleared in the pattern, that is plain to see So take it on around again, we have some VIP. Itazuke tower, this is Air Force 801 l'm turning on the downwind leg, I see your biscuit gun My engine's runnin' ragged, and the coolant's gonna blow I'm gonna prang a Mustang, so look out down below. Itazuke tower, this is Air Force 801 l'm turning on the final, and running on one lung l'm gonna land this Mustang, no matter what you say l've gotta get my charts fixed up before that Judgment Day, Air Force 801, this is Judgment Day You're in Pilot's Heaven, and you are here to stay You just bought a Mustang, and you bought it well The famous Air Force 801 was sent straight down to Hell. From There I was flat on my back, Stevens Tune: Wabash Cannonball RG
