Here we see one of Harold’s many dreams for the first time. There are two stories in this song. The first is more of an anecdote. When my other Tio Raffy joined the army, Harold soon wanted to join too, just like his older brother. He became obsessed with airplanes, studying different models. He even started collecting dogtags with his name on it. The Intrepid is actually referring to this carrier in New York City that has all these old military planes and whatnot. We used to go there together when I was a boy, and Harold always loved telling the story of us going together.


Lieutenant Harold, are you ready to report to duty?
Is it time to board the intrepid?
Do the planes seem sturdy enough for you?

You’ll fly a jet plane like you always ever wanted!
You’ll be the soldier that you never had the chance to be!
All you wanted to be was a soldier like your older brother

Lieutenant Harold, will you tell them everything
About your brain and how it works on specific schedules
And gears functioning? What good would that bring?
If you told them about your accommodations
You would never get to fly off the station.
Just stay at home and hold your patience patiently

Don’t tell them about your medications,
your intellectually disadvantaged condition
Just pray and wait. You’ll rise above your station.
