[GH] ¡Hola Señor! We are Federales. You know, the mounted police.
[FCD] If you're the police, where are your badges?
[GH] Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges!
I have only comparatively recently emerged from the United States Army, so that I am now, of course, in the radioactive reserve. And the usual jokes about the Army aside, one of the many fine things one has to admit is the way that the Army has carried the American democratic ideal to its logical conclusion, in the sense that not only do they prohibit discrimination on the grounds of race, creed, and color, but also on the grounds of ability.
Be that as it may, some of you may recall the publicity a few years ago, attendant upon the Army's search for an official Army song, to be the counterpart of the Navy's Anchors Aweigh, and the Air Force's Up in the Air, Junior Birdmen, and so on.
I was in basic training at the time, and I recall our platoon sergeant, who was an unfrocked Marine, --- Actually the change of service had come as quite a blow to him because it meant that he had to memorize a new serial number, which took up most of his time. --- At any rate, I recall this sergeant's informing me and my ... roommates, of this rather deplorable fact that the Army didn't have any official -- excuse me -- didn't have no official song, and suggested that we work on this in our copious free time.
Well, I submitted the following song, which is called It Makes a Fellow Proud to be a Soldier, which, I think, demonstrates the proper spirit, you'll agree. However, the fact that it did not win the contest, I can ascribe only to blatant favoritism on the part of the judges.
