To be a Marine
To Be a Marine
A marine is known for his valour
Across the oceans wide
A marine is known for his honour
Someone to trust at your side
A marine will lead through fire
To rescue waifs and strays
A marine will never retire
A marine ‘til the end of his days
So if you wish to aspire
To wear the Green Beret
Come show us your desire
And we’ll make your life that day.
