Thread Name: Origins: Into the Air (Junior Birdmen)
Subject: ADD Version: Junior Birdmen
Our version (upstate NY) was:

[Up] into the air, junior birdmen
[up] into the air upside down
[up] into the air, junior birdmen
with your noses to the ground.

For when you hear the junior birdmen
have got their wings of tin
then you will know the junior birdmen
have sent their boxtops in.

For it takes:
five boxtops,
four bottle-bottoms,
three wrappers,
two labels,
and one thin dime.
