My Darling 39

ln the cockpit of the cobra
Trying hard to reach the line
But alas my engine faltered
Fare thee well my 39.

CHORUS: Oh my darling, oh my darling
Oh my darling 39
You are lost and gone forever
Fare thee well my 39.

When you're spinning very flatly
And you've got a worried mind
That's all brother. Hit the jumpsack
Bid farewell to your 39.

All the brass hats in our Congress
They have signed the dotted line
They are lucky they just bought it
They don't fly the 39.

tune: Clementine
Note: The Bell P-39, otherwise known as the Airacobra, was an odd
     plane: Its engine was behind the pilot, and drove a forward
     prop through a hollow shaft which also housed a 37mm cannon.
     With all this weight in the center, it had a habit of
     spinning very flat. It was also heavy, and generally disliked by
     everyone except the Russians, who got some under Lend-Lease. The
     P-39 was hell on German tanks. RG
From There I was, flat on my back..., Bob Stevens.
