Make Me Operations Don't give me a P-38 with props that counter-rotate They'll loop, roll and spin but they'll soon auger in Don't give me a P-38! CHORUS: Just make me Operations Way out on some lonely atoll For I am too young to die I just want to go home.* Don't give me a P-39 with an engine that's mounted behind It will tumble and roll and dig a big hole Don't give me a P-39. Don't give me an old Thunderbolt. It gave many pilots a jolt It looks like a jug and it flies like a tug Don't give me an old Thunderbolt! Don't give me a Peter Four Oh, a hell of an airplane, I know A ground loopin' bastard. You're sure to get plastered Don't give me a Peter Four Oh. Don't give me a P-51, it was all right for fighting the hun But with coolant tank dry. you'll run out of sky Don't give me a P-51. Don't give me a P-61, for night flying is no fun They say it's a lark. but I'm scared of the dark Don't give me a P-61. Note: Oscar Brand sings," I just want to grow old" which is a less bad rhyme.
