Marine Corps Cadences

Fighting Man 

You can have your Army Khakis,
And your Navy Blues,
But here’s a different fighting man,
I’ll introduce to you.
His uniform is unlike,
Any you’ve ever seen,
The Germans called him Devil Dog,
His title is Marine.  

Marine Boot Camp

He was trained in Paris Island,
The place that God forgot,
The sand was fourteen inches deep,
The sun was blazing hot.
He awakened up one morning,
In front of his rack he?ll stand,
And in through the doorway walked,
A giant of a man.

He turned and faced this young Marine,
With eyes as cold as steel,
He said, I am your DI,
And this is for real.
I’ll make your life as miserable,
As miserable as I can,
And when you finally leave this place,
You’ll be a fighting man.
You’ll be a rifle expert,
You’ll know your weapon well,
And when you finally leave this place,
You know you’ve paid your dues.  

Eagle Globe and Anchor

Said if you wanna be a DI ya gotta be thin
A lo righty left

Back In 1775

 Back In 1775
My Marine Corps Came Alive

First There Came The Color Gold
To Show The World That We Are Bold

Then There Came The Color Blue
To Show The World That We Are True

Then There Came the Color Red
To Show The World The Blood We have

Then There Came The Color White
To Show The World That We Can Fight

Then There Came The Color Green
To Show The World That We Are Mean

Born to be a Marine


TALKING TO MY DADDY ON HIS DYING BED
WITH A SMILE ON HIS FACE THIS IS WHAT HE SAID
WHEN I CAME OUT OF MY MOTHER’S WOMB
I FOUND MYSELF IN THE DELIVERY ROOM
ALL BLOODY AND WHITE I RAPPELLED TO THE FLOOR
CUT THE UMBILICAL AND CRAWLED TO THE DOOR
CRUISED THE WARD AND I’M LOOKIN GOOD
BABY LITTLE MARINE LIKE I SHOULD
CAMOUFLAGE DIAPER BLACK BABY SHOES
BUTTER KNIFE SWORD AND BABY DRESS BLUES
HUMVEE STROLLER TRICYCLE TANK
THREE DIAPER PINS ON MY COLLAR FOR RANK
DOWN THE HALL I HEARD SOME CRYING LIKE HECK
WALKED RIGHT IN CALLED ATTENTION ON DECK
LISTEN UP WIMPS I’M IN COMMAND
ALL YOUR CRYIN AND YOUR SNIVELIN I WILL NOT STAND
THEY SAID AYE AYE SIR AND I HAD IT MADE
I WAS COMMANDING OFFICER OF THE BABY BRIGADE

The Cowboy

Hey, Hey, what do you say,
I’m goin’ to the rod-e-o today.I drew a bad bull, heard he was a bear,
But I can hang for 8, so I just don’t care.Tie up, bear down, sittin’ on my bull,
I’m just waitin’ for the gate to pull.Out from the chute blows my old ride,
It’s a wonder that I’m still alive.Just right then the 8 seconds pass,
I jump right off of that bull’s ass.Quick, turn around and what do I see?
That old bull come a-chargin’ at me.I pull a cut-down 12-gauge from my hip,
And send that bull on a little trip.I’m the meanest cowboy that you ever did see,
U.S.M.C Infantry!
