Throw a Nickel In The Grass

Throw a Nickel In The Grass

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Throw a nickel on the grass save a fighter pilot´s ass
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Throw a nickel on the grass and you´ll be safe!

Well, I´m cruising down the Yalu, doing six-and-twenty per
When a call came from the Major, " Oh, won´t you save me, Sir!
Got two big flak holes in my wings, my engine´s outta gas!
Mayday! Mayday! Mayday! Got six MIG´s on my ass!"

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Throw a nickel on the grass save a fighter pilot´s ass
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Throw a nickel on the grass and you´ll be safe!

Well, I shot my traffic pattern, to me it looked alright
The airspeed read one-ninety, I really racked it tight
The airframe gave a shudder, the engine gave a wheeze
Mayday! Mayday! Mayday! Spin instructions please!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Throw a nickel on the grass save a fighter pilot´s ass
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Throw a nickel on the grass and you´ll be safe!

The crosswind blew me side ways, left wing hit the ground
I firewalled the throttle, and I tried to go around
I yanked the Sabre in the air, a dozen feet or more
The engine quit, I almostt shit, the gear came through the floor

Hallelujah! Halleluhjah!
Throw a nickel on the grass save a fighter pilot´s ass
hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Throw a nickel on the grass and you´ll be safe!
