  1. This may or may not sound like a very nancy sort of post to put up, but Ive always enjoyed singing a good funny/dirty/rude song during long tabs/drives etc. Does anyone know any?
    Here's my own favourite....

    Blood On The Risers

    "Is everybody happy?" cried the sergeant looking up
    our hero meekly answer yes, and so they stood him up
    he lept into the slipstream with his static line unhooked
    and he aint gonna jump no more

    Gory glory what a hell of a way to die
    Hanging by you ankles in the middle of the sky
    With a bullet up your backside and an arrow in your eye
    And he aint gonna jump no more

    He counted loud he counted long, he waited for the shock
    He felt the wind, he felt the cold, he felt that awful drop
    He pulled the cord, the silk spilled out, and wrapped around his legs
    And he aint gonna jump no more


    The risers wrapped around his legs, the D rings cracked his dome
    Suspension lines were tied in knots around his skinny bones
    His canopy became his shroud as he hurtled to the ground
    And he aint gonna jump no more


    The days hed lived and loved and laughed kept running through his mind
    He thought about the girl back home, the one he left behind
    Then he thought about the medics and he wondered what they'd find
    And he aint gonna jump no more


    The ambulance was on the spot, the landies running wild
    The medics jumped and squealed with glee, roll up their sleeves and smiled
    For it had been a week or two since last a chute had failed
    And he aint gonna jump no more


    He hit the ground, the sound was SPLAT, the blood was spurting high
    His fellow men were heard to yell "WHAT A HELL OF A WAY TO DIE!"
    He lay there rolling round in all the wealter of his gore
    And he aint gonna jump no more
