THE DORSAI CADET SONG
Words: Clif Flynt and Gail Hormats
Music: Clif Flynt
On the capital of Dorsai, there stands a plot of land.
It's just a building and a grove of trees.
"The Dorsai Training Corps" is the title on the door,
But we just call it the Academy.
The students study Cletus there; his writings and his life;
About his famous "Tactics of Mistake";
Until their senior year when they're issued fighting gear
And assigned a force to see what they can take.
And it's hie cadet! Hey cadet!
Listen to what I say now, cadet!
Listen or I'll leave you to your fate.
Hie cadet, hey now, don't get in my way now,
Or you won't survive to graduate!
A cadet thinks he knows it all when he first comes on board.
He thinks that he's as ready as can be,
Until he meets a few of a seasoned Dorsai crew.
Then he finds out why there's different shades of green.
We agree that hazing is a tactic of the past.
No one should be degraded or disgraced.
It's only that we care that we teach them to beware;
That the careless are the first to die in space.
