— G.I. Joe theme lyrics

G.I.Jeff main photo
Jeff and his friends as G.I. Joe characters
In the Jeff's fifth year at Greendale, he celebrated his fortieth birthday by taking some Korean youth pills and chasing it down with a bottle of scotch. This caused him to fall into a drug induced coma and he was rushed to the hospital. While unconscious, he imagined that he and his friends had become characters in his favorite childhood cartoon "G.I. Joe". He even inserted everyone into G.I. Joe's opening theme song intro which started off every show. The song was first heard in the Season Five episode "G.I. Jeff" .

G.I. JOE A Real American Hero Intros 1983-1987

Lyrics:

Yo Joe!

He'll fight for freedom wherever there's trouble,
G.I. Joe is there!

G.I. Joe
[A real American hero]
G.I. Joe is there!

It's G.I. Joe against COBRA and Destro,
fighting to save the day!

He never gives up, he's always there
Fighting for freedom over land and air!

G.I. Joe
[A real American hero]
G.I. Joe is there!

G.I. Joe is the codename for America's daring,
highly trained, special mission force!
It's purpose, to defend human freedom against COBRA,
a ruthless terrorist organization
determined to rule the world!

He never gives up, he'll stay 'till the fights one
G.I. Joe will dare!

G.I. Joe
[A real American hero]
G.I. Joe !

Lyrics:

Yo Joe!

G.I. Joe is the codename for America's daring,
awesomely trained, awesome mission force!
It's purpose, to fight COBRA because they're terrorists!
Look, I think I'm over explaining it.
The bad guys are snakes and the good guys are army people.

He never gives up, he'll stay 'till the fights one
G.I. Joe will dare!

G.I. Joe
[A real American hero]
G.I. Joe !


TriviaEdit

Rob Schrab versionEdit

"G.I. Jeff" director Rob Schrab and Community creator Dan Harmon are real life friends and long time collaborators. The production of the episode was held up for a time while Harmon finished tweaking the script. As the deadline drew nearer, a friendly twitter feud between Schrab and Harmon began with Rob insisting that Dan complete the script. This feud culminated with Harmon getting Jon Kimmel ( the G.I.Joe theme singer for this episode ) to sing a parody song about Rob which was originally posted HERE . Warning, the video contains NSFW lyrics.

Schrab @sshole

Lyrics:

He tweets some bullsh*t whenever he's busy
Schrab is an @sshole
Schrab @sshole!
Schrab @sshole is there!

It's Robbie Schrab against all of humanity
Tweeting things all day
He'll never be nice
He's always mean
Eating his own poop
and drinking his pee!

Schrab @sshole!
Schrab @sshole is there!

Schrab @sshole is the codename for America's
biggest, dumbest, poop eating @sshole!
His purpose? To tweet mean things at Dan Harmon,
a TV writer determined to entertain nice people.
I also suspect he hits his wife.

He makes you feel bad when you write a script late,
Schrab is an @sshole!

Schrab @sshole!

Schrab @sshole!
