Born To Fly 5/10/16

Poppa was a fighter pilot
in the second world war;
A Flying Tiger Ace
in the Army Air Corp;

A son of Oklahoma,
a sturdy sort of lot;
Our country needed good men;
men like Poppa’s what they got.

Poppa found himself in China,
ten thousand miles away;
Outwitting Japanese Zero’s,
just to fight another day.

When the war was over,
the victory song was sung;
Poppa was a hero,
‘though his life had just begun.

Willing to do his duty;
not afraid to die;
Grew up with a rifle,
but he was born to fly.
He was born to fly. Born to fly.
