Fox 1 In The Face

Posted by Jolly on March 22, 2012


F-4migkill.jpgFox 1 in the Face was a song written in 1983 by Gary “Gopher” Myran, Chuckles, Rocky, Da HO, and myself while we were in the 497th TFS "Hooters" at Taegu AB, Korea.  The name of our band was Bellmouth and the Intakes (Rocky came up with that idea).  We sang at every party we had, and we had a lot of parties.  We wrote a new song for every party we had,  
and we had a lot of songs.  We had all the Hooter Lieutenants in our band, and we had a lot of Lieutenants.  The "Reagan Era" were some great years to fly fighters, and it didn't get a whole lot better than flying with the Hooters (originally the Night Owls from WW Nam).  Flying air-to-air in clean F-4E's everyday just didn't suck!

 

 Fox 1 in the Face became a classic infox1.jpg every squadron I was in after the “Hooters” and I adapted a version in 1987 for the 67th TFS (Fighting Cocks at Night).  I made a trip back to Kadena in 1996 and went to the Zipper (67th bar) where “all the Cocks hang out” and heard them still singing Fox 1 in the Face 13 years after we wrote it in the Hooter Hooch.  From what I understand, the Fighting Cocks still sing it every Friday night.  It’s a song that’s timeless and became a trademark for the Fighting Cocks.  The Cock's recently won the Raytheon Trophy for being the best fighter squadron in the Air Force.  Cock Standard!  They receive the trophy next month.


Pictured in the video taken by Lighty in the Hooter Hootch, Taegu AB, Korea are Bellmouth and the Intakes from L-R (back row) Bones, Headly, Cow, EEL, Slick, (front row) Gopher, Squirt, Bung, Radar, Kama, and the dude with his back to the camera is STX/Bellmouth (aka Jolly).  

OBTW: Gopher is pictured under the owl that was from the original Night Owls.  Gopher was killed in a F-4 mid-air at George AFB in 1990.  This song will be forever dedicated to the memory of a great fighter pilot and friend, Gopher.  Here’s a nickel on the grass for you amigo.

Fox 1 in the face, You never saw it
Fox 1 in the face, you really bought it
At the merge today
We blew your shit away

Then we came back round, you had no SA

GCI was down, we came back to play

Aim-9's and Gun Shots

We finished off the rest


Hooters from the GU, Heroes for hire

Hooters from the GU, That's what we're paid to do

But when the sun goes down, We’ll all be downtown

Drinking with your wives and girl friends, While you mend you little egos

 

Next time that we meet, There’ll be no questions

Who you’ll have to beat, In any action

No one F—ks or Fights

Like Hooters in the night
