He Jumped From 40 Thousand Feet

Lyrics

1ST VERSE
he jumped from forty thousand feet without a parachute
he jumped from forty thousand feet without a parachute
he jumped from forty thousand feet without a parachute
and he aint gonna jump no more.

CHORUS
glory glory what a hell of a way to die
suspended by your braces when you dont know how to fly
glory glory what a hell of a way to die
and he aint gonna jump no more.

2 st verse
he landed on the runway like a splat of strawberry jam
he landed on the runway like a splat of strawberry jam
he landed on the runway like a splat of strawberry jam
and he aint gonna jump no more.

CHORUS.

3RD VERSE
they scraped him off the runway with a bread and butter knife
they scraped him off the runway with a bread and butter knife
they scraped him off the runway with a bread and butter knife
and he aint gonna jump no more.

CHORUS.

4TH VERSE
they put him in a envelope and sent him home to mum X3
and he aint gonna jump no more.

CHORUS.

5TH VERSE
she put him on the mantle piece for everyone to see x3
and he aint gonna jump no more.

CHORUS.

6TH VERSE
the cat jumped on the mantle piece and knocked it in the fire x3
and he aint gonna jump no more.

CHORUS.

7TH VERSE
he went right up the chimney in a great big puff of smoke x3
and he aint gonna jump no more.

CHORUS.

8TH VERSE
and now hes up in heaven teaching angels how to fly x3
and he aint gonna jump no more.

Ours started "Our Sergeant Major jumped from forty thousand feet" and followed up with "He landed on the runway like a lump of strawberry jam" and "They put him in an envelope and sent him to his mum". The chorus was "Glory, glory, what a horrible way to die" x3 "And he ain't gonna jump no more". Fond memories from 30+ years ago...

We always sing this at Scout camp, but I swear our version has a verse in it that was something like 'The Captain was the last to jump the first to hit the ground' x3. Does anyone remember that version??

Our version was Cat packed the parachute forgot to pack the strings. X3 He landed on the runway going a million miles an hour. X3 They scraped him off the runway like a blob of strawberry jam. X3 Put him in an envelope and sent him home to mum. X3 Absent minded granny spread him on a bit of toast. X3 And our chorus was definitely Glory, Glory, Hallelujah, what a he'll of a way to die.

one can substitute " horrible " for hell of a" it cleans it up with the same number of syllables: "...glory, glory what a horrible way to die"

I think this song could be cute, but I can never teach it with bad words in it. How do you sing it leaving out hell of a way to die. how do you clean it up for children. It seems way inappropriate to put in a web site for children and then put a phrase in that would cause them to be in trouble if they used it. Thanks.
