Well if you lot are going to learn some appropriate drinking songs, (and by all the gods you should!), then those songs best be of the RFC and RNAS variety. Here are two standards in the upbeat tempo that you can begin with.


What Do You Want?

(here is a link to a 1917 recording of: "What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For?" so that you can sort out the tune to which this ditty is sung)


What did you want to go and
crash like that for?
Its the second time today.
You make me mad,
you make me sad.
First it was a Rumpety,
then a brand new Spad.
What do you want to fool
around like that for?
First you banked and then
you slipped away.

But never mind, youll go
up again tonight,
with umpteen bombs
all loaded with dynamite.
Then if you make another crash like last time,
then you wont draw next weeks pay.




The Only Way

(here is a link to a 1915 recording of: "The Only Way" so that you can sort out the tune to which this ditty is sung)


If by some delightful chance,
when youre flying out in France,
some Bosche machine you meet,
very slow and obsolete.
Dont turn round to watch your tail,
tricks like that are getting stale;
just put down your beastly nose,
and murmur, Chaps, here goes!

Its the only only way,
its the only trick to play;
hes the only Hun, youre the only Pup,
and hes only getting the wind right up.
So go on and do not stop
til his tails damn near your prop;
if he only crashes this side in flames,
well, only then theyll believe your claims.
So keep him tight in your Aldis sight,
its the o-o-only way!

If on escort you should go
when the Fees are very slow,
while the Archies grumph and roar,
and Huns gather by the score;
if a nasty Hun should strive,
its away that you must dive.
Theres no choice at all, and so
down your nose must go!

Its the only only way,
its the only trick to play;
hes the only Hun, youre the only Pup,
and hes only getting the wind right up.
So go on and do not stop
til his tails damn near your prop;
if he only crashes this side in flames,
well, only then theyll believe your claims.
So keep him tight in your Aldis sight,
its the o-o-only way!

Ah splendid a sing song! As I'm not too squiffy I shall take my turn beside the piano.

[3 whiskies hastily shoved across the bar]

Works every time.

A tried and true tactic Maeran, and one that is proportionately successful based on the squiffyness of those around you.

If I had the time, I'd probably come up with a BWOC or WOFF version of "It's along way to Tipparary". Pretty sure that one's a WWI era song, no?

And barkeep, a round for all me'boys here in honor of the release of WOFF UE!

Indeed HD, you are correct sir!
Louvert, I just sat here passing the time sing'n along. I suppose I should have recorded it so's to have a good laugh for everyone. This will require bourbon or brandy to be properly performed. Please see to the arrangements! I'll be practicing!tuner

Cheers!

Greetings fellow BOC members and other interested victims - err umm - candidates. I am posting to address a most grievous oversight that must be corrected post-haste. When checking our club records this morning I discovered that loftyc, who applied for membership some time back and is most assuredly qualified, was overlooked during the most recent initiation ceremonies. This error shall be amended this evening at the club bar where we will properly initiate our BOC brother by abusing his newly created tab and introducing him to one of our most hallowed relics - the cricket bat.

Welcome aboard loftyc, most glad to have you as one of the daft, the touched, the barmy. BWOC BWOC BWOC!

Lou

Good catch Lou I was feeling the need for some spirits. Congrats on your conformation Loftyc. Now which way to the bar. I think it is this way or maybe that way. If I get lost I will listen for the fine singing voice of Lou, that will show me the way.

BARring the lack of voices, just listen for the melodic sound of clinking glasses and gurgling spirits!

Glad we got that cleared up, got to keep the rolls up to date! I need to know if that chap across the way is making googly eyes at me because he is a member of our most egregious organization or because of...well...myopia...

Is this the Betty Ford Clinic for WW1 flight simulation?

I have a court order demanding that I present myself here for "evaluation".

No JB, you have it quite wrong, we at the BOC don't wish to cure you but rather urge you to embrace your madness. Now then, if you've read our membership charter in the first post here you need only to offer a few of your qualifications, apart from those you've already demonstrated, and we shall be more than happy to welcome you in, start your bar tab, and introduce you to our most hallowed and sacred ceremonies.


ROBERT! Get the bat, we've hooked another one!
