Ballad of the ASA
Here's one from back in the 70's, before the ASA became INSCOM. It is a parody of "The Ballad of the Green Beret" and sung to the same tune. The color references are to the colors of the old ASA patch.

Black is for the night we fear
Blue's for water we don't go near
White is for the flag we fly
Yellow is the reason why
Red is for the blood we shed
As you see, there is no red.
Titless WACS is what they say
That is us, of the ASA

Here is a full (and somewhat alternative) version from ASA Lives

Drunken Soldiers, Always High
Dropouts from old Sigma Phi
Men who b******t all the way,
These are the men from the ASA

Plastic cans upon our ears,
We've been cleared and
we're not Queers
One Hundred Men will test today,
But only three make the ASA

Trained to go from bar to bar,
That's the life thats best by far
Men who drink will seldom fight,
And the ASA drinks through
the night

On a Mid, a Trick Chief waits,
Four of his men are coming late
Men who drink among the best
Another drink, their last request

A teal blue scarf 'round
my son's neck
Makes my son a nervous wreck
One hundred men re-upped today,
But not a one from the ASA

Black is for the night we fear,
Blue the water we don't go near.
Yellow is the reason why.

Red is for the blood we've shed.
As you see, there is no red!
One hundred men reupped today.
Not a one for the A-S-A!
