On that subject we need a theme song for the BOC parties. Many squadrons had a song.
BJM?
Something on the banjo barmy enough to be the official club song?

Barmy OFFer in questionable standing, maybe collapsed in a corner?

Join the few, the touched, the moon spacklers.

There is no question that some of you guys have actually had whiskey before breakfast, so with that in mind I present to you guys the most appropriate banjo song for our illustrious group. Gentlemen, I present to you 'Whiskey before Breakfast' played by the awesome David Hum.

Cavalier57 thanks for posting that video. Love the Massey Fergs and the gathering spot to play. Not much different than my shack in the woods...except it's just me calling the owls and singing a sad croaking frog blues song.

Heck, I've had fresh from the pressure cooker and mixed it in with my morning omelette and Cup-a-Joe.
Blackberry blossoms are showing...got my picking spots lined up. Hope I don't run into that white striped belly black bear. I pack defensive weapons...sometimes it is just my knife. ....Note to self...Remember the 454 when berry picking in a couple of months

Gentlemen,

We do actually have a BOC Song, and if animated signatures were allowed on these fora, you'd have seen it already. To the tune of 'What shall we do with the Drunken Sailor'

What shall we do with the Barmy Airman?
What shall we do with the Barmy Airman?
Seems to us it's only fair, man...
Put 'im in the B. O. C.

'Contact! Clear!' And the engine's started...
'Contact! Clear!' And the engine's started...
Fifteen feet and he flies inverted,
Barmy as can be!

Upside down, sets off for action...
Upside down, sets off for action...
Clears the trees by the merest fraction,
Utter lunacy!

Strictly speaking the line should read 'Contact! tink... tink... tink... Clear!' but there were always arguments about the punctuation so we dropped it to reduce the mess damages bill.


Not saying it couldn't benefit from a banjo though...

Oh that I was back in the dear old PBI.
With no more Triplanes on me tail, nor tracer tracing by.
And no more flames and clickerty-clack and no more blooming sky,
And only a couple of feet to fall whenever I want to die.

No. 56 Squadron Song

Quite right Dej, old man, I was hoping you would introduce our new members to our official club song, which you so cleverly penned many moon ago. Numerous verses have been added to the original over the course of time and with the inspiration of much drink. Several of the more popular additions are as follows:

Can't recall where his common sense is...
Can't recall where his common sense is...
Even flirts with titanium fences,
Totally barmy!

Strafes balloons, every one he passes...
Strafes balloons, every one he passes...
Lights his fag off the burning gases
A barmy man is he!

When he dies send him off to Fiji...
When he dies send him off to Fiji...
Clouds he's tried, says "No more for me, gee!"
A barmy R.I.P.!


And a banjo accompaniment? That could work quite well and would be in keeping with the general barmyness of the place.

Alrighty BJM...looks like the ball is in your court.
I had forgotten about the official song. Set to banjo music would be superb.

Egad! Both Lou and I forgot the bally chorus, which used to be:

Hoo-ray and up he rises,
Hoo-ray and up he rises,
Hoo-ray and up he rises,
He's a Barmy OFFer!

But if I recall correctly the last line was changed to BWOC! BWOC! BWOC!, accompanied by energetic flapping movements... the mating cry of the male dodo, so it's been said.

For newer members that's also the origin of the ostrich feather bustle we wear on Founder's Day... or would if the Founders had anything better than an alcohol-fogged recollection of when that was and thus could tell everyone else!

GASP! Dej, how could we have forgotten the chorus?! Actually, I can sort out pretty simply how we managed it, as it's the same reason we can't recall when our Founder's Day is - or was. Twas? Really, it's amazing we've remembered all the verses we have. Oh, and I believe it was six repeats of "BWOC!" as it was determined to be more rhythmically pleasing and allowed for more flapping.

Clearly, we need to be drinking more. BARKEEP!

I like these two bands, SLaG and The Blue Aeroplanes, chiming layers of finger picked 6 and 12 string guitars.
