A song that my dad used to sing when I was a kid. To the tune of "On, Brave Old Army Team":

Up in the air, Junior Birdmen
Up in the air, upside-down!
Up in the air, Junior Birdmen
Keep your nose up off the ground!

And when you hear the great announcement
That your wings are made of tin-
Well, then you know, Junior Birdmen
It's time to send your box tops in!

(Alternate verse)

And when you see all those birdmen
With their shiny wings of tin-
Then you will know the Junior Birdmen
Have sent their box tops in!

Hand motions

Make wings with your arms when you sing "Up in the air", and swoop low when you sing "Nose up off the ground".

Make goggles with your thumb and forefinger each time you say "Junior Birdmen".
