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. RG
