Favorite Cadence


#21

[quote=TheOperative;53264]For those of you who have been “in” tell or post your favorite cadence. I always liked the mcdonalds one…but that one got outlawed shortly after my arrival in late 95 . Although, from my understanding, we all got real watered down version of most everything.

I have first-hand knowledge that the McDonald’s one, if it was outlawed, was still used - my hubby told me they did that one on a regular basis in BCT!
There was one that they did called “Left Right Left Right Left Right Kill” which would flow into McDonald’s. His DS’s were what the recruits called ‘Super Soldiers’, they didn’t water down anything!

Thats usually an Airborne Cadence.

(chorus.)A-I-R-B-O-R-N-E
(shoot, shoot, shoot to kill)
Rangers, lead the way
(die, die why won’t you die)

I went to see the 1st Sgt,
he was lying in his bunk,
the medic said he’s wounded,
but I know that he’s drunk.

chorus

My buddies in a foxhole,
Bullet in his head,
The medic says he’s wounded,
but I know that he’s dead.

chorus

I hear the choppers coming
They’re flying over head
They come to get the wounded
But all they find is dead

Most BCT puts there own little “spin” on them but thats what I remember

My Personal Favorite is

Hey ey Hey eh
Hey Eh Yeh eh eh eh

Remember WW2,
When your granddady died,
and your grandmomma cried.
It’s Alright, It’s Alright
It’s Alright, It ok
I’ve seen a better Day.

Hey ey Hey eh
Hey Eh Yeh eh eh eh

Remember Vietnam,
When your daddy died,
and your momma cried,
It’s Alright, It’s Alright,
It’s Alright It’s Ok
I’ve seen Better Days

Hey ey Hey eh
Hey Eh Yeh eh eh eh

Remember Afghanistan,
When your Brother Died,
And you Cried,
It’s Alright, It’s Alright,
It’s Alright Its Ok.
I’ve seen a better Day

Hey ey Hey eh
Hey Eh Yeh eh eh eh

Remember 9-11,
When all those People Died,
and the world cried,
It’s Alright, It’s Alright,
It’s Alright It’s Ok.
They’ll be a better day

Your husband went to Ft. leonard wood as well?


#24

Yes he did! He graduated from BCT/AIT on October 2nd. He was soooo glad to be out of there - come to find out that when he puts in for Drill Sergeant School, he’ll be heading back there to be an MP DS! :rofl:

chuck norris remix of airborne cadence.

#26

“Napalm sticks to Kids” was an old favorite

I don’t remembe the names of them all, but there was one about Chesty Puller that was a great one, and the immortal “C130 rolling down the strip…”

The link to 2 old ladies isn’t working so I don’t know if this is part of it or not. We always followed it with:

Here we go
We’re at it again
We’re movin out
We’re movin in

repeat above:

Count cadence delayed cadence count cadence count!
1…2…3…4
1…2…3…4…
1234 1234!

My fav:

We’ll I don’t know but I’ve been told,
Eskimo (slang for female private part) is mighty cold!

:slight_smile:

It was still going strong when I was in 29 Palms in 1995.
I may have heard this in Okinawa too.
Forgot all about this one, thanks!

For those of you who have been “in” tell or post your favorite cadence. I always liked the mcdonalds one…but that one got outlawed shortly after my arrival in late 95 . Although, from my understanding, we all got real watered down version of most everything.

They were using it in 1996 when I was at Ft. Leonard Wood

One of my favorites was,
“Hey, hey, Captain Jack,”
“Meet me down by the railroad track”
“With that weapon in my hand”
“I’m gonna be your fightin man,”
“Your left, your left”
“Your left, right, aw left”
“Your military left”
“Your left, your right, now pick up the step,”
“Your left, your right, your le-e-eft”

“Hey, hey, Captain Jack”
“Meet me down by the railroad track”
“With that woman in my hand”
“I’m gonna be your lovin man”
…etc…

I went to boot camp in '82 at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, US Army

I heard my first running cadence today. My Dad’s been gone 12 years now. Hearing those voices Sound Off! I felt like I was right there running with him. I miss him bad. I’m proud of him.
His battle lasted way after WWII ended. He couldn’t walk without braces or crutches since he was 19. He became paraplegic at the Battle of the Bulge. Yeah, All Gave Some. He gave his legs.
He had balls! He went on to become a champion wheelchair bowler, sailed and played wheelchair tennis. He graduated law school and raised four kids.
He gave me heart, soul and courage.
I’m singing for the VA at Baypines Florida this Fourth of July.
I’m gonna cry now so I don’t cry on stage.
Thanks for the cadences! Thanks Dad!

Yellow Ribbon

Around her hair she wore a yellow ribbon
She wore it in the spring time, in the early month of May
And if you asked her why the heck she wore it
She’d say she wore it for her soldier who was far, far away
Far away
Far away
She wore it for her soldier who was far, far away
Around the block she pushed a baby carriage
She pushed it in the spring time, in the early month of May
And if you asked her why the heck she pushed it
She’d say she pushed it for her soldier who was far, far away
Far away
Far away
She pushed it for her soldier who was far, far away
Behind the door, her father kept a shotgun
She kept it in the spring time, in the early month of May
And if you asked her why the heck she kept it
She’d say she kept it for her soldier who was far, far away
Far away
Far away

Modification: instead of saying “far away” twice, say “far away” once, then “not close!”

The last stanza changes “she” to “he” referring to the father, and the last line goes

He kept it for that soldier to blow that man away.

Also “airman” instead of “soldier” or “trooper” as the original would of had.
