Finnegan Cooper, a new paratrooper
Was makin’ his very first leap
Finnegan laughed like crazy jack ass
While no one else let out a peep
The jump master said, “Men, when I say jump then
you will run through that wide open door!
The static line will deploy your parachute boys
If it fails you will pull your rip cord!
When you make your touch down on the targeted ground
Pack your chute up and sit down and wait
A truck will come by to give you a ride
And will take you right back to the base!”
But when Finnegan bailed, the static line failed
So he pulled the rip cord as was told him
But the rip cord was busted and Finnegan cussed it
And aimed for a haystack below him.
“The static line broke, the rip cord was a joke
“This damn paratroopin’ I’m hatin’!
That jump master jerk! Not a damn thing worked!
An’ I s’ppose now that truck won’t be waitin!”
