Give Me Operations

Posted by Jolly on December 23, 2011

Here's an old standard perfromed by Oscar Brand.  He's got a great collection of old military music.  This song is a WW II song writen no doubt by some student pilots before assignment night hoping for the ulitmate Christmas present, the fighter of choice!  It could easily be modified to add some of the latest aircraft to the mix.  So get to work and write some new verses for us damn it! 

 

GIVE ME OPERATIONS

Performed by Oscar Brand


Don't give me a P-38.

 The props, they counter rotate.

They are scattered and smitten from Burma to Britain,


Don't give me a P-38.

 

Chorus

Just give me Operations,

Way out on some lonely atoll.

For I am too young to die,

I just want to grow old.

 

p-39.jpg

 

Don't give me a P-39.

The engine is mounted behind.

 They'll tumble and spin and auger you in,

Don't give me a P-39.

 

 

 

Don't give me a Peter Four Oh.FUP40MaxHaynes.jpg

It's a hell of an airplane, I know.

She’s a ground looping bastard,

you're sure to get plastered,

Don't give me a Peter Four Oh.


 

 

f86d.jpg

 

Don't give me a 86D.

With Rockets, Radar, and AB

She’s fast I don’t care,

She blows up in mid air

Don't give me a 86D


 

 

f84.jpg

 

Don't give me a F-84.

She's just a ground loving whore.

She'll whine, moan and wheeze,

and she'll clobber the trees,

Don't give me a F-84


 

 

 

P47.jpg

 

Don't give me an old Thunderbolt.

It gave many a pilot a jolt.

It looks like a jug and flies like a tug,

Don't give me an old Thunderbolt.


 

 

 

 

p80.jpg

 

Don't give me a jet shooting star.

It'll go, but not very far.

It'll rumble and spout, but soon will flame out,

Don't give me a jet shooting star.


 

 

 

FUf-100f.jpg

 

Don't give me a One-Double-Oh.

The bastard is ready to blow.

The AB is there, but you're saying a prayer,

Don't give me a One-Double-Oh.

 

 

 

mcdonnell-f101-voodoo.jpg

 

 

Don't give me McDonnell's Voodoo.

There's nothing that she will not do.

She'll really pitch up,

she'll make you throw up,

Don't give me McDonnell's Voodoo.


 

 

 

FUf-102.jpg

 

 

Don't give me an F-102.

It never goes up when it's blue.

An all weather coffin that flames out too often,

Don't give me an F-102.


 

FURF104NavyPeterTerlouw.jpg

 

Don't give me an F-104.

With blown boundary layer control.

One flap fails to blow and over she'll go,

Don't give me an F-104.


 

 

Thud.jpg

 

Don't give me an F-105.

'Cause I love being alive.

She's great for attack,

she soaks all the more flak,

Don't give me an F-105.

 

 

FUF4JohnFleck.jpg

Don't give me a bent wing F-4.

With a crew of 20 or more

She'll stall and she'll pitch,

and spin flat as a bitch,

Don't give me a bent wing F-4.

 

 

If you're coming up to crunch time in pilot training, may want to wear this to assignment night to let your instructors know you have the right stuff!

I didn't pilot a P-38, but I remember the twin hull construction, well !!

Looked for a '38 at the Boneyard in Tucson, but it was one of the very few
that were missing. If you vets haven't visited there, it is really worth
the effort.-----Just about every aircraft that you could imagine is there.
