we are, we are. we are............................


Good post.

Suggest that if we can come up with an agreed definitive version I will post it as a sticky at the top of the Board so it remains there for ever.
so, i'll kick off the first verse then.

we are we are we are we are the Royal Engineers

we can we can we can we can demolish 40 beers

we'll drink, and drink, and drink, and drink, and drink, and

you have to be real drunk to sing this but hey

You are my Sergeant.
My only Sergeant
You make me tired.
When you drop me
But you never know Sarge,
how much I love you.
Please don't take my Sergeant away!
now this one is hazy, so aplogies in advance for mistakes

Lady godiva through coventry did ride
to show to all the citizens the lilly white of her thighs
the most observant person was an Engineer .. of course
he was the only one who noticed that Godiva rode the horse

My father was a miner from the Northern Malamute
My mother was a mistress in a house of ill repute
The last time I saw them, these words rang in my ears,
An engineer told me before he died,
Ah-hum, titty-bum, titty-bum, titty-bum,
An engineer told me before he died,
Ah-hum, ah-hum,
An engineer told me before he died,
I have no reason to believe he lied,
Ah-hum, titty-bum, titty-bum, titty-bum,
Ah-hum, titty-bum, titty-bum, titty-bum.
He had a wife with a **** so wide,
He had a wife with a **** so wide,
He had a wife with a **** so wide,
That she could never be satisfied,

So he built a bloody great wheel,
With two balls of brass and a prick of steel.

The balls of brass he filled with cream,
And the whole ******* issue was driven by steam.

He tied her to the leg of the bed,
Tied her hands above her head.

There she lay demanding a ****,
He shook her hand and wished her luck.

'Round and 'round went the bloody great wheel,
In and out went the prick of steel.

Up and up went the level of steam,
Down and down went the level of cream.

'Till at last the maiden cried,
Enough, enough, I'm satisfied.

Now we come to the tragic bit,
There was no way of stopping it.

She was split from ass to tit,
And the whole ******* thing was covered in shit.

It jumped off her, it jumped on him,
And then it buggered their next of kin.

It jumped on an uptown bus,
And the mess it made caused quite a fuss.

The last time, Sir, that prick was seen
It was over in England ******* the Queen.

There is a moral to the story I tell,
If you see it coming better run like hell.

Nine months later a child was born,
With two brass balls and a bloody great horn.

The moral of this story is mighty clear.
Never **** an engineer.
First time ever before a drink, but here goes

Napoleon and Joesephine at the battle of Waterloo,
Napoleon thought Joesephine was being rather cool,
and as the British Army were advancing from the rear
Joesephine was captured by a Royal Engineer

We are...............................

Summat like that
the navy thought that they could drink
but that was just a farce
we met the air force in the bar
and left them on their arse
so if you think that you can drink
you'd better bring some beer
'cause you'll never out drink
a Royal Engineer!!!
lady godiva said " i have travelled far"
" would anyone be kind enough to show me to the bar?"
the only one kind enough to buy the girl a beer
was a bleary eyed sapper
of the royal engineers!!
when we come into your town the women give a cheer
and when its time for us to leave they shed a little cheer
so when we come into your town
you better hide your women and your beer
or theyll both be going home with...............
I have made this a sticky so it can 'grow' over time.

Keep the contributions DIRECTLY relevant to the specific song. Others will be deleted. (oooo - The power of being a MOD!!)
back in 82 the argies tried to win a war.
Lay down your guns surrender cos we're gonna take you all.
First they heard us laughing but they they heard us cheer.
We never will surrender cos we're royal engineers

Godiva was a lady who through Coventry did ride
To show the royal villagers her fine and pure white hide
The most observant man of all, an engineer of course,
Was the only one who noticed that Godiva rode a horse

She said, “I've come a long, long way, and I will go as far
With the man who takes me from this horse and leads me to a bar”
The man who took her from her steed and lead her to a beer
Was a bleary-eyed surveyor and a drunken engineer

Godiva was a lady well-endowed there is no doubt
She never wore a stitch of clothes, just wound her hair about
The first man who did make her was a Engineer, of course,
But on just one beer an artsie queer had made Godiva's horse

Ace Towing roams the Cambridge streets each day and every night
Towing cars and stowing cars to hide them out of sight
They tried to tow Godiva's horse; the Engineers said, “Hey!”
Then towed away their towing truck, and now the Ace must pay!

Rapunzel let her hair down for two suitors down below,
So one of them could grab a hold and give the old heave-ho
The prince began to climb at once, but soon came out the worst,
For the Engineer rode up a lift, and reached Rapunzel first

Only a few - I have about 20 more verses but didn't want to kill the thread in one go!
Sabrina was a lady with a 42-inch bust,
Vertically unstable, and insecurely trussed.
The Div. Commander said the situation wasn't right,
so he sent an engineer around to inspect her every night!

we are, we are, we are, we are....
I think some of the versus go something like this:

The zulu war was raging the thin red line held fast
yet those sappers knew that they would last
as wave and wave of zulus came you could here those sappers sing
we are the engers and we will never die.

Napoleon at waterloo was fighting for his life
the last thoughts on his mind were those of his wife
as he bravely led his men, he thought he showed no fear
as Josephine was taken by a sapper from the rear

All then was quite until 1939
the boxheads bombed our boozers before closing time
they also bombed our chip shops and we knew that was not good
cos you don't f**k our beer and you don't f**k our food

from 1945 until 1982
those RE fighting soldiers had f**k all else to do
The Argies stole our Falklands
and we was not having that
so we sent down a task force and took the f**kers back.

We've got sappers in the paras we've got sappers in the SAS
we've got sappers in the commandos the test is hard to pass
the tomb of the unknown soldier a monument to those who fell
you can tell that he was a sapper cos he took 10 of them as well.

Many a good night in sapper rugby clubs have taught me a little ditty or two.
i reckon someone should transfer these verses to a song sheet to be handed out at the army v navy game next year so we can make the corps tent rock!!
