The Dismounted Cavalry Song
by Mal Stylo
(Sung to the tune of the "Mister Ed" theme song)
A horse is a horse and it follows of course, That a cavalryman rides on a horse, per course, That is, unless he happens to be, Dismounted Cavalry!
What is the reason? I see no need, For all good horse-soldiers to perch on a steed, Quite a few are happy to be, Dismounted Cavalry!
Let others march around and drill and waste their time of day; The horseless cav will form for a charge and quickly hit the hay!
Go right to the source and ask this force, They'll tell you why they have no horse, It's 'cause it really authentic to be, Dismounted Cavalry!
Others are cruel and call them farbs, But the dismounted cav ignores these barbs, They know everyone secretly craves to be, Dismounted Cavalry!
The dismounted cav does its thing and ignores the yells and whoops, That dismounted cav makes no more sense than parachute-less paratroops!
A horse is a horse and it follows of course, That no true cavalryman rides a horse, The most authentic are proud to be, Dismounted Cavalry!
