SNAP SONG (I WANTED WINGS)

Performed by Oscar Brand


I wanted wings till I got the Goddamn things--Now I don't want them anymore

They taught me how to fly, then they sent me off to die,

Well I've had a belly full of war

You can save those bloody Zeros for other the Goddamn heroes

Distinguished flying crosses do not compensate for losses buster


I wanted wings till I got the Goddamn things--Now I don't want them anymore.


Yes I’ll take the dames, let the rest go down in flames

I have no desire to be burned.

Air combat spells romance, until they shoot holes in my pants

I’m not a fighter I have learned

You can save the Mitsubishis, for the other son’s of bitchies

I’d rather make a woman then be shot down in a Grumman buster


I wanted wings till I got the Goddamn things--Now I don't want them anymore.

 

Now I’m too young to die in a lousy PBY, that’s for the eager not for me

I don’t trust in my luck to be picked up by a duck

After I’ve crashed into the sea

Yes I’d rather be a terrier, then I flyer on a carrier

With my hand around a bottle, you can keep your Goddamn throttle buster


I wanted wings till I got the Goddamn things--Now I don't want them anymore.

 

I do not care to tour over Berlin and the Ruhr,

Flak always makes me loose my lunch

I get an erg to pray when the holler “Bombs Away”

I’d rather be at home with the bunch

For there’s one thing you can’t laugh off, when they shoot your tailpipe half off

I’d rather be at home buster with my tail, then with a cluster buster


I wanted wings till I got the Goddamn things--Now I don't want them anymore.

 

The feed us lousy chow but we stay alive somehow

On dehydrated eggs and milk and stew

The rumor has it next they’ll be dehydrating sex

That’s the day I tell the coach I’m through

For I’ve managed all the dangers, the shooting back of strangers

But when I get home late, I want my woman straight mister

 

I wanted wings till I got the Goddamn things--Now I don't want them anymore
