F Troop

Album: Television's Greatest Hits (1965)

  • The end of the Civil War was near
    When quite accidentally,
    A hero who sneezed abruptly seized
    Retreat and reversed it to victory.

    His medal of honor pleased and thrilled
    his proud little family group.
    While pinning it on some blood was spilled
    And so it was planned he'd command F Troop.

    Where Indian fights are colorful sights
    and nobody takes a lickin'
    Where pale face and redskin
    Both turn chicken.

    When drilling and fighting get them down,
    They know their morale can't droop.
    As long as they all relax in town
    Before they resume with a bang and a boom
    F Troop. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
