HEAVY ATTACK SQUADRON TWO

THE LEGEND OF PUCKETT
(Sung to the Kingston Trio’s  MTA)
 
1.    Let me tell you the story of a man named PUCKETT on a tragic and fateful day.  He was thrown in the brig for disobeying orders and escaped from the M.A.A.
 
Chorus:
Did he ever return? No he never returned, and his fate is still unlearned;
He may swim forever toward the isle of Vana Cora; He’s the man who never returned.
 
2.  They called all hands to General quarters;  The Exec had this to say; "We are missing a man from HATRON TWO, and we'll find him if it takes all day!" (Chorus) 
 
3.   They  searched the  ship from  stem to  stern, From the crow's nest to bilges, too;  While up on the bridges you could hear an awful voice shouting: "PUCKETT, where the heck are you?" (Chorus)
 
4.   All night long the search continued, until the break of day, but all that they found were two black shoes; Old PUCKETT had gotten away.  (Chorus)
 
5.   Now you citizens of Sydney, keep your eyes wide open; if old PUCKETT you should happen to see;  He stands five-foot-four in his stocking feet; and he weighs one thirty-three. (Chorus)
