The U.S. Air Force Song
(Updated Official Lyrics, 1 May 2020)
Off we go into the wild blue yonder, Climbing high into the sun; Here they come zooming to meet our thunder, At ‘em now, Give ‘em the gun! Down we dive, spouting our flame from under, Off with one helluva roar! We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey! Nothing’ll stop the U.S. Air Force!
(Verse II) Brilliant minds fashioned a crate of thunder, Sent it high into the blue; Valiant hands blasted the world asunder; How they lived God only knew! Boundless souls dreaming of skies to conquer Gave us wings, ever to soar! With scouts before and bombers galore. Hey! Nothing’ll stop the U.S. Air Force!
(Verse III) Here’s a toast to the host Of those who love the vastness of the sky, To a friend we send a message of the brave who serve on high. We drink to those who gave their all of old, Then down we roar to score the rainbow’s pot of gold. A toast to the host of those we boast, the U.S. Air Force!
(Verse IV) Off we go into the wild sky yonder, Keep the wings level and true; If you’d live to be a grey-haired wonder Keep the nose out of the blue! Fly to fight, guarding the nation’s border, We’ll be there, followed by more! In echelon we carry on. Oh, nothing’ll stop the U.S. Air Force
