Bless 'em All (USAF-Korea) Bless 'em all, bless 'em all The long and the short and the tall Bless old man Lockheed for building this jet But l know a guy who is cursing him yet For he tried to go over the wall With his tiptanks, his tailpipes and all The needles did cross and the wings did come off So cheer up my lads. bless 'em all. Well, bless 'em all. bless 'em all The needle, the airspeed and ball Bless all those instructors who taught me to fly Sent me to solo and left me to die If ever your blow jet should stall Well, you're due for one hell of a fall No lilies or violets for dead fighter pilots So cheer up my lads, bless 'em all. Bless 'em all, bless 'em all The long and the short and the tall Bless all the sergeants and their bloody sons Bless all the corporals, the fat-headed ones I'm saying goodbye to them all The long and the short and the tall Here's to you and lots others, you can shove it up brothers I'm going back home in the fall. From There I was, flat on my back... Bob Stevens RG
