Chants de la Easy Company – Band of Brothers

Band of Brothers – Frères d’Armes : les chants

La véritable histoire des hommes du 506 PIR, 101st Airborne, Easy Company

Dans le film Band of Brothers, les réalisateurs ont voulu insérer deux chants militaires interprétés par les soldats de la Easy Company : dans l’épisode 1, lors de l’entraînement à Toccoa, et dans l’épisode 10, pendant les déplacements en Allemagne.

Je vous propose de découvrir les paroles de ces chansons militaires, dont la première a été modifiée dans le film : les versions proposées ici sont les originales.

Chant de la Easy Company à Toccoa

We’re Colonel Johnson’s Troopers,
We’re fighters of the Night,

We’re dirty sonsabitches,
We’d rather fuck than fight!

Hi-Dee, Hi-Dee, Christ Almighty,
Who in the Hell are we ?

Rim-Ram, Gawd Damn, Parachute Infantry

 

Blood Upon the Risers

He was just a cherry trooper and he surely shook with fright
as he checked all his equipment and made sure his pack was tight
He had to sit and listen to the awful engines roar,
And he ain’t gonna jump no more.

(Refrain)
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
He ain’t gonna jump no more

“Is everybody happy?” cried the Sergeant, looking up.
Our hero feebly answered “yes,” and then they stood him up.
He leaped right out into the blast, his static line unhooked.
He ain’t gonna jump no more.

(Refrain)
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
He ain’t gonna jump no more

He counted long, he counted loud, he waited for the shock;
He felt the wind, he felt the clouds, he felt the awful drop;
He jerked his cord, the silk spilled out and wrapped around his legs.
He ain’t gonna jump no more.

(Refrain)
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
He ain’t gonna jump no more

The risers wrapped around his neck, connectors cracked his dome;
The lines were snarled and tied in knots, around his skinny bones;
The canopy became his shroud, he hurtled to the ground.
He ain’t gonna jump no more.

(Refrain)
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
He ain’t gonna jump no more

The days he’d lived and loved and laughed kept running through his mind;
He thought about the girl back home, the one he’d left behind;
He thought about the medics and wondered what they’ed find.
He ain’t gonna jump no more.

(Refrain)
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
He ain’t gonna jump no more

The ambulance was on the spot, the jeeps were running wild;
The medics jumped and screamed with glee, they rolled their sleeves and smiled;
For it had been a week or more since last a chute had failed.
He ain’t gonna jump no more.

(Refrain)
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
He ain’t gonna jump no more

He hit the ground, the sound was splat, his blood went spurting high;
His comrades were then heard to say, “A heck of way to die”;
He lay there rolling ‘round in the welter of his gore.
He ain’t gonna jump no more.

(Refrain)
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
Gory, Gory, What a helluva way to die
He ain’t gonna jump no more
