Where’s Bruce?

RTV has been pretty scare lately.

Well we understand. All great heroes have to hide out sometimes. Like MacArthur on Battaan. A long-neglected song makes it’s, um, return. Sung to the tune of The Battle Hymn of the Republic.

Dugout Doug MacArthur lies a shakin’ on the rock,

safe from all the bombers and from all the sudden shock.

Dugout Doug is eating of the best food on Bataan,

and his troops go starving on.

Dugout Doug’s not timid, just cautious, not afraid.

He’s protecting very carefully the stars that Franklin made,

four-star generals are as rare as good food on Bataan.

And his troops go starving on.

Dugout Doug is ready in his Chris-craft for the flee

over bounding billows and the wildly raging sea.

For the Japs are pounding on the gates of Old Bataan,

and his troops go starving on.

We’ve fought the war the hard way since they said the fight was on.

All the way from Lingayen to the hills of Old Bataan.

And we’ll continue fighting after Dugout Doug is gone.

And still go starving on.
