Author's Chapter Notes:
It's a slashy filk.
Hang down your head George Hammond.
Hang down your head and cry.
Hang down your head George Hammond,
Your job was do or die.

George Hammond's in Cheyenne Mountain,
Stargate Command is there
And when he went and took this job,
he used to have some hair.
It seems he had some problems
several years ago.

He sent his people out to look
for Jack O'Neill, the pro.
Now the problem's well in hand,
Apophis is deceased,
But today there are some issues,
it's Friday the Thirteenth!

Hang down your head George Hammond
Hang down your head and cry.
Hang down your head George Hammond
Your job was do or die.

Jack O'Neill of SG1
was coming down the stairs.
He tripped on his own in-line-skates
and sprained his ankle fair
Now Daniel, Jack's young lover,
found him lying there.

Found him lying on his butt
and knew he'd go no where.
He went to call Doc Fraiser
She came right over then.
Jack is stuck in bed right now
a week there he must spend.

Hang down your head George Hammond
Hang down your head and cry.
Hang down your head George Hammond
Your job's to do or die.

Danny's had to stay there
to nurse Jack back to health.
They'll be no gould translations,
least not the kind that help.
He is now concentrating
on taking care of Jack.

Dan will have to cook and clean,
and order in Big Macs.
He'll have to keep O'Neill's bed warm
but that won't be so bad.
They should be back on Monday
if Danny doesn't sprain his back!
(hang your head down)

Hang down your head George Hammond
Hang down your head and curse.
You used to think your job was hard
But now it's gotten worse,

And then we have Sam Carter,
Jack's second in command.
Since she had some downtime,
she went to find a man.
She went to take her Harley out,
to ride the great divide.

But as she went around the curve
it went across the line.
Sam had to lay the big bike down
leaving her skin and paint.
So, now the Harley is in shop,
and a riding it, Sam ain't.
(hang your head down)

Hang down your head George Hammond
Hang down your head and curse.
You used to think your job was bad
But today it's getting worse.

Now big Teal'c's the only one
of SG1 not down and out.
He's stuck inside the mountain
with nothing left to do.
So now he's giving classes
in Jaffa self defense.

He's teaching all the young recruits how
to survive when they're off world.
teaching how to fight the foe
with staff and zatnikel.
If they can stay in one piece here,
they'll impress George all to hell!
(hang down your head now)

Hang down your head George Hammond
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head George Hammond
But now there's nothing left but try

George Hammond's in Cheyenne Mountain,
Stargate Command is there,
And when he came and took this job,
he used to have some hair.
He used to have some problems
several years ago.

But they've done themselves a good job here,
at Stargate Command.
Now the problem has all changed a bit,
It's Jack, Teal'c, Daniel and Sam.
Cause today there are some issues,
it's Friday the Thirteenth.
(hang your head down, NO)

Don't Hang down your head George Hammond
Don't Hang down your head and cry.
Don't Hang down your head George Hammond
You'll survive the thirteenths curse.
You know you've survived much worse.
