Hey yo Captain Jack
(Hey yo Captain Jack)
Bring me back to the railroad track

Running to the railroad track
Run along with Captain Jack
Run to peace camp back

Badadadeedado, left right, right left
Badadadeedado, run along with Captain Jack

Forward march!

Hey yo Captain Jack
(Hey yo Captain Jack)
Bring me back to the railroad track
(Bring me back to the railroad track)
Gimme a gun in my hand
(Gimme a gun in my hand)
I want to be a shooting man
(I want to be a shooting man)
Left, right, left
(Left, right, left)
The military step
(The military step)
The air force rap
(The air force rap)
The seventeen is the best
(The seventeen's the best)
Go left, go right, go pick up the step, go left, go right, go left
(Go left, go right, go pick up the step, go left, go right, go left)

We are running to the railroad track
Run along with Captain Jack
Badeedado badeedado, run along with Captain Jack
Run into the peace camp back
Run along with Captain Jack
Deedado, badeedado, badeedadeedadeedado
Badadadeedado, left right right left
Badadadeedado, run along with Captain Jack

Company attention!
Forward march!

Hey yo Captain Jack
(Hey yo Captain Jack)
Bring me back to the railroad track
(Bring me back to the railroad track)
Gimme a bottle in my hand
(Gimme a bottle in my hand)
I want to be a drunken man
(I want to be a drunken man)
Left, right, left
(Left, right, left)
The military step

Go left, go right, go pick up the step, go left, go right, go left
(Go left, go right, go pick up the step, go left, go right, go left)

We are running to the railroad track
Run along with Captain Jack
Badeedado badeedado, run along with Captain Jack

    General CommentThis is a military cadence used when a group is either marching or running. However, there was a remix made which can be found on DDR.
