Your Squad Is Your Squad Lyrics

CZECHOWSKI (spoken):
Alright Tennessee! Sit down, shut up, and listen!

(sung)
Seems to me your squad is your squad
Thick or thin
Every man in your squad is your squad
Is your squad
Didn't that stinking film teach ya' nothin'?
Didn't it make you cry?
Watchin' old Speedy die
To save his buddies
Sure, some guys are smelly or odd

(spoken) Like you, Ravioli

ROTELLI:
Hey!

CZECHOWSKI (sung):
Some you like
Some you would ransom
Some are a pain
Some are handsome!

But everyone is needed, son
Till there's assistance from God!
Your squad is your squad and your squad
Is your squad

(spoken) Now, tell Stu you're sorry. You don't gotta love him,
But you gotta except him. Ravioli, help me out

ROTELLI:
Seems to me your squad is your squad
Toe to toe
Facing the foe

PROFESSOR:
Seems to me your squad is your squad

BOTH:
Your squad is your squad

CZECHOWSKI:
Is your squad

PROFESSOR:
Say there's bombs
Troops getting pounded

ROTELLI:
Say that you're trapped
You're surrounded!

CZECHOWSKI:
You'll cast your lot
With them's you got
Fella, when push comes to prod
Your squad

ROTELLI:
Is your squad

PROFESSOR:
Is your squad

ALL:
Is your squad

PROFESSOR (spoken):
Stu, you're a smart guy. You know you're not front line material.
Take a mailboat off the ship

TENNESSEE (spoken):
No one is leaving on your say so

CZECHOWSKI (spoken):
What, you jealous of a couple lovebirds?

ROTELLI (spoken):
Of course Mitch loves Stu, I love my buddy

(sung)
Professor
You know what I’d do for you
I’d chew my arm through for you
Chew straight through
Yes indeed
As long as you were safe and free from harm
Only one arm I’d need

PROFESSOR (spoken):
And you’d look real spiffy with one arm too

ROTELLI:
You’re too kind!

PROFESSOR:
But seriously

(sung)
That’s nothing
I’d pay the god’s any price
The ultimate sacrifice
Do it twice
If I could
I’d throw my only glasses overboard
Swear to the Lord,
I would

ROTELLI (spoken):
You’d be blind! But I’d lead you around the battlefield

PROFESSOR (spoken):
Aw!

CZECHOWSKI (sung):
And Tennessee
Say you’re annoying me
Hypothetically
Still I’d swoop in quick to save your dumb hick hide
There’s no task I would not do
FIght till I’m black and bloody blue
For you
And feel like I’d won the lottery
Knowin’ we got such strong camaraderie!

TENNESSEE (spoken):
You don’t understand

CZECHOWSKI:
I understand plenty
You’re being a dick

PROFESSOR:
And all I know is that Mitch had a long face for a month,
And his buddy came back and he’s good again!

TENNESSEE:
But where were they during the movie?
Stu, answer me! Where the hell were you?

STU (sung):
Seems to me
Your squad is your squad

CZECHOWSKI:
Is your squad

PROFESSOR:
Is your squad

ROTELLI:
Is your squad!

STU:
We’re your crew
Fighting for you

CZECHOWSKI:
Be true to your crew to review

STU:
Some of the time you’re glum

ROTELLI:
Some you’re cranky!

PROFESSOR:
Some days are just the pits
Wish you could call it quits

ALL:
But look around you
Jesus Christ, we make a nice squad!
We’re your hope
Leave it or take it

PROFESSOR:
You’ve seen me cry!

ROTELLI:
Seen me naked!

TENNESSEE:
Aw jeez…

ALL:
So, curse your luck
By now you’re stuck
Squeezed in like peas in a pod
Your squad is your squad is your squad
Is your…

MITCH:
Seems to me
Your squad is your squad

[ALL cheer]

MITCH:
In or out
Make a decision

ROTELLI:
Spare us your gripes

PROFESSOR:
Your derision!

CZECHOWSKI:
And be a friend
At least pretend

ALL:
All that we need is a nod

TENNESSEE:
Fine.

ALL:
Your squad is your squad
Is your squad is your squad
Is your
God damn squad!
