A campfire song popular in the UK (at least it was in the eighties...) - it goes to the tune of John Brown's Body.

Johnny was a parachuter in the RAF
Johnny was a parachuter in the RAF
Johnny was a parachuter in the RAF
But he ain't gonna jump no more

chorus
Glory, glory, what a hell of a way to die
When your knickers are suspended in the early morning sky
Glory, glory, what a hell of a way to die
And he ain't gonna jump no more

He jumped from 50,000 feet without a parachute...

They scraped him off the runway like a lump of strawberry jam...

They stuck him in an envelope and sent it home to mum...

She put him on the mantelpiece for everyone to see...

coda
Johnny was a parachuter in the RAF...
