Don’t give me a posting to “ONE”
Their Bulldust is boring and dumb
Whilst up in the air,
Every bullet they fear,
It’s” Bale Out” and home on the run

No! Give me good old Seven
The Squadron that’s earning its pay
Fighting the war
And settling the score,
We wear out two arseholes a day

Don’t give me a posting to
I’d rather do time in the loo
Their broken down ships,
Give their pilots the shits,
But they’ll never get anything new


Imagine a posting to “THREE”
‘Mongst old men who fly the “Gooney”
Theyr’e never on ops
As pilots they’re flops
But they sure can collect S and T


Don’t give me a posting to “FOUR”
‘Cos they drive a noisy old whore,
When they make a pass,
They get shot up the ass
Keep flying clubs out of the war


“Lookout” here’s faithful old “FIVE”
‘Neath bushes and rocks troopies dive,
Have courage there men,
AAH Shit, they’ve done it again,
They sure make it hard to survive


I forgot there’s a squadron called “SIX”
In op’s they don’t know the tricks,
As everyone knows,
They’re a squadron of “SCHMOES”
A cadet is all they can fix.


They say they’re the brains of HQ
But mister, I’ve got news for you,
They don’t give a fuck
They just pass on the buck
From you, down to me, back to you.


Note: The Seven Squadron motto was” Fight anywhere and everywhere”.
