“SHENAN IS BELIEVING!”

or "This Parachuting Business! - Sung to the tune of "Mr. Gallagher and Mr. Shenan.”

VERSE 1
Oh Mr. Gallagher, Oh Mr. Gallagher,
What is this Airborne Forces thing about?
Can you give me all the gen
On these parachuting men
And how they’re feeling when they’re bailing out?


VERSE 2
Oh Mr. Shenan, Oh Mr. Shenan,
The whole darn thing is just a lot of fun,
They go singing as they jump
And they never feel the bump.

I'm astounded Mr. Gallagher,
I’m a liar, Mr. Shenan.

VERSE 3
Oh Mr. Gallagher, Oh Mr. Gallagher,
Is it true they practice jumping on the ground?
Leaping over little things,
Swinging up and down on swings,
And vaulting everything that can he found?


VERSE 4
Oh Mr. Shenan, Oh Mr. Shenan,
To watch their exercises is a joy,
Flying through the air with ease,
Just like mating chimpanzees.
Think of the fun, Mr. Gallagher,
Think of the fun, Shenan old man.


VERSE 5
Oh Mr. Gallagher, Oh Mr. Gallagher.
They jump from a balloon at first I find,
Can they still whip. up a thrill,
After that synthetic drill
Or is their first jump just another blind?



VERSE 6
Oh Mr. Shenan, Oh Mr. Shenan,
They worry just a little when they’re up,
The danger is you see
The Y.M. may be out of tea.

Nerves of Iron, Mr. Gallagher?
Throats of leather, Shenan old chap.
And vaulting everything that can he found?

VERSE 7
Oh Mr. Gallagher, Oh Mr. Gallagher,
From the rumours that I’ve heard it would appearl’,
When a Whitley’s overhead,
There’s a shout to wake the dead,
Do you think it’s the instructor that we hear?


VERSE 8
Oh Mr. Shenan, Oh Mr. Shenan,
It’s true they raise their voices now and then,
Just to let the fellows know
If they want to they can GO!!!

On the level, Mr. Gallagher?
On the green light, Shenan old man.

VERSE 9
Oh Mr. Gallagher, Oh Mr. Gallagher,
You make the whole thing too good to he true,
Surely something now and then
Shakes these parachuting men,
Is there anything they don’t like going through?


VERSE 10
Oh Mr. Shenan, Oh Mr. Shenan,
I’ll answer this last question when I’m done,
It’s not jumping that’s the fuss,
It’s the ride home in the bus!

Is it mastered, Mr. Gallagher?
It’s a shaker, Shenan old son.
