 11 th AIRBORNE  SONG ; DOWN FROM HEAVEN.
An original composition by Lt. Col. Byron Paige.
Arranged by Sgt. George Whissen.
Down from Heaven comes ELEVEN  
and there's HELL to pay below  
shout "GERONIMO" "GERONIMO".  
Hit the silk and check your canopy  
and take a look around  
The air is full of troopers  
set for battle on the ground  
Till we join the stick of "ANGELS"  
killed on Leyte and Luzon  
shout "GERONIMO" "GERONIMO".  
It's a gory road to glory  
but we're ready here we go  
shout "GERONIMO" "GERONIMO".

 
 
82 nd AIRBORNE SONG ; THE ALL-AMERICAN SOLDIER.
Adaption by Tom Jones and Charles Koff. Words by Carl Sigman.
From: The 82nd. Division Pamphlet 600-2

The All American Soldier

Put on your boots, boots, boots
And parachute-chutes-chutes
We're going up, up, up
And coming down, down, down.

We're All American and proud to be
for we're the soldiers of liberty.
Some ride their gliders to the enemy.
Others are sky paratroopers.

We're All American and fight we will,
'Til all the guns of the foe are still.
Airborne from skies of blue,
We're coming through, Let's Go!

Put on your boots, your parachutes,
Get all those gliders ready to attack today.
For we'll be gone into the dawn,
To fight them all the 82d way, hey!
 

Version from the Military Academy:

We're All American and proud to be; 
For we're the soldiers of Liberty. 
Some ride the gliders through the enemy; 
Others are sky paratroopers. 
We're All American and fight we will, 
Till all the guns of the foe are still. 
Airborne - from skies of blue 
We're coming through - 
MAKE YOUR JUMPS, TAKE YOUR BUMPS 
(shouted, not sung) 
Let's go. 
INTERLUDE 
Put on your boots, Your parachutes. 
Get all those gliders ready to attack today.
For we'll be gone Into the dawn 
To fight 'em all the Eighty Second way. 
Yes - (Repeat CHORUS).





101 st  AIRBORNE SONG ; SCREAMING EAGLES.
Written by Capt. Samuel R. Loboda.
GO! You Screaming Eagles,  
Dive thru the sky!  
Never let your strength and courage fail.  
Just make your jumps 
and feel your parachutes  
Grab the air with a snap  
as down to earth you sail.  
Come on let's GO!  
You Screaming Eagles  
Fight for the right to be called a son
of the "ONE-O-ONE" 
So here we GO!  
You know the Eagles are
diving from the sun,  
Look out for the MIGHTIEST MEN of  
Ge-ron-i-mo! .
