The stars of this military farce were the gallant incompetents of F Troop at Fort Courage, somewhere west of the Missouri, in post-Civil War days. The CO was the wide-eyed, bumbling Captain Parmenter, who had been promoted from private during the closing days of the war when he accidentally led a charge in the wrong direction, toward the enemy. Unbeknowst to the captain, Sgt. O'Rourke had already negotiated a secret, and highly profitable treaty with the Hekawi Indians, from whom he also had an exclusive franchise to sell their souvenirs to tourists. There was no peace treaty with the Shugs, however, and they sometimes caused trouble. Cpl. Agarn was O'Rourke's chief aid and assistant schemer, and Wrangler Jane the hard-riding, fast-shooting cowgirl who was out to marry Parmenter.

(The theme song from F-Troop)

The end of the Civ-il War was near when quite ac-ci-den-tal-ly A he-ro who sneezed ab-rupt-ly seized retreat and re-versed it to vic-to-ry His med-al of hon-or pleased and thrilled his proud lit-tle fam 'ly group While pin-ning it on some blood was spilled and so it was planned he'd com-mand F Troop!

Where In-di-an fights are col-or-ful sights and no-bo-dy takes a lickin' When pale - face and red - skin both turn chick - en When dril-ling and fight-ing get them down they know their mo-rale can't droop As long as\ they all re-lax in town, before they re-sume with a bang and a boom F Troop!
