I can't stand Irene.  Not only is it sick and perverted, but it is not exactly the kind of talk we should be encouraging at CAP activities.

My personal favorites are little bird and one by one.

I've Got a Date with the General's Daughter

I forgot about that one!  I believe it's formal name is "Hut, Two, Three and a Quarter", but I could be mistaken.  Glorious Victorious was always a favorite, too.

Most of the jodies I like are dirty.  I don't sing them anymore, though.

To give you an idea for how encampment in NY has changed... at my first encampment, the whole cadet corps sang the "SP" cadence (up jumped the SP from the coconut grove...)  It was a blast.  I was 13.

At the last encampment I went to, any jodie that was even remotely suggestive was frowned upon.  I agree that SP is inappropriate, but some of the others are just low-brow fun.

Still, probably inappropriate for 12-year-old cadets. :(

Irene was funny the first 700 times I heard it.  It's just a tired old cliché now.  Four Winds is another fav; good, AF-centric, and "G" rated.

I loved Irene, mainly because we weren't allowed to sing it.  "Allowed" being the key word there. :P

Actually, one of the most common ones I use is Old King Cole, but we don't sing many jodies anymore.  Hopefully that will change soon.

Back in the day, we used tv theme songs. Gilligan's Island, Brady Bunch, Duke of Hazard, etc.

I always liked "A-10 Pilots." It's sometimes frowned upon as it involves violence. But seriously, who here doesn't like bombing communists?

Nowadays they are getting harder and harder to come by...

You made realize just how long ago I first entered the CAP world.  <grin>

In my day, the flights were separated in male and female flights for encampments. The female flights sang songs like "If I had a Hammer" "Lemon Tree" "Puff the Magic Dragon" and other "hippy" folk songs. The male flights sang songs like "You've Lost that Living Feeling" "Yellow Submarine" "Satisfaction" and Beach Boy hits.

At a COWG encampment several yrs ago a c/flight commander taught his flight a bunch of WWII marching songs from different countries and in different languages.

 Really!  The language wouldn't bother me so much it is the knowing what he is saying i wouldn't like.

Very cool.  Those are some worthwhile cadences to learn - great music.  :)  I'm surprised they haven't come around again.

Oh, we had those too.  It was during the Viet Nam era and our squadron motto was that "we are combat ready"  In retrospect, it must have been strange seeing a bunch of kids from CAP in formation yelling that we were combat ready.  Yep, times were different.

I like this one that I've learned but try to refrain from using very often.  The language can be considered a bit harsh or offensive to "hypersensitive" cadets.

Searching through the fields
Marching through the grass
Ground Teams, everywhere
Looking for your ass
Hidy Hidy, who the hell are we?
Zim-zam*, Uncle Sam
We're from CAP

*was edited to avoid posting the lord's name in vain on the internet

I like it, it has a nice flow to it, and after a little creative editing it actually isn't that bad.

One cadence from years ago was:

What do you do in the CAP
You March, You March, You March
What do you do in the CAP
We never ever Fly
What do you do in the CAP if you're never in the Sky
We sit and sweat by the taxi strip and watch the planes go by
Go to your left, right left    etc.
