Armed Forces Lyrics

MARINE’S HYMN
From the Halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli
We fight our country’s battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.

Our flag’s unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job —
The United States Marines.

Here’s health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we’ve fought for life
And never lost our nerve.
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven’s scenes,
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.

THE ARMY SONG
First to fight for the right,
And to build the Nation’s might,
And The Army Goes Rolling Along
Proud of all we have done,
Fighting till the battle’s won,
And the Army Goes Rolling Along.

CHORUS Then it’s Hi! Hi! Hey!
The Army’s on its way.
Count off the cadence loud and strong
(TWO! THREE!)
For where e’er we go,
You will always know
That The Army Goes Rolling Along.

Valley Forge, Custer’s ranks,
San Juan Hill and Patton’s tanks,
And the Army went rolling along
Minute men, from the start,
Always fighting from the heart,
And the Army keeps rolling along.

Chorus

Men in rags, men who froze,
Still that Army met its foes,
And the Army went rolling along.
Faith in God, then we’re right,
And we’ll fight with all our might,
As the Army keeps rolling along. Chorus

ANCHORS AWEIGH

Stand Navy out to sea, Fight our Battle Cry; We’ll never change our course,
So vicious foe steer shy-y-y-y.
Roll out the TNT, Anchors Aweigh.
Sail on to Victory
And sink their bones to Davy Jones, Hooray!

Anchors Away, my boys, Anchors Aweigh.
Farewell to foreign shores,
We sail at break of day-ay-ay-ay.
Through our last night on shore,
Drink to the foam,
Until we meet once more.
Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home.

Blue of the Mighty Deep; Gold of God’s Sun
Let these colors be till all of time
be done, done, done,
On seven seas we learn Navy’s stern call:
Faith, Courage, Service true,
with Honor, Over Honor, Over All.

OFF WE GO INTO THE WILD BLUE YONDER
Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
Climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder, At ’em boys, Give ‘er the gun!
(Give ‘er the gun now!)
Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,
Off with one helluva roar!
We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey! Nothing’ll stop the U.S. Air Force!

Additional verses:
Minds of men fashioned a crate of thunder,
Sent it high into the blue;
Hands of men blasted the world asunder;
How they lived God only knew!
(God only knew then!)
Souls of men dreaming of skies to conquer
Gave us wings, ever to soar!
With scouts before And bombers galore. Hey! Nothing’ll stop the U.S. Air Force!

Bridge: ‘A Toast to the Host’
Here’s a toast to the host
Of those who love the vastness of the sky,
To a friend we send a message
of his brother men who fly.
We drink to those
who gave their all of old,
Then down we roar
to score the rainbow’s pot of gold.
A toast to the host of men we boast,
the U.S. Air Force! Zoom!

Off we go into the wild sky yonder, Keep the wings level and true;
If you’d live to be a grey-haired wonder
Keep the nose out of the blue!
(Out of the blue, boy!)
Flying men, guarding the nation’s border,
We’ll be there, followed by more!
In echelon we carry on. Hey!
Nothing’ll stop the U.S. Air Force!

Semper Paratus (Always Ready)
The United States Coast Guard Theme Song
From North and South and East and West,
The Coast Guard’s in the fight.
Destroying subs and landing troops,
The Axis feels our might.
For we’re the first invaders,
On every fighting field.
Afloat, ashore, on men and Spars,
You’ll find the Coast Guard shield.
We’re always ready for the call,
We place our trust in Thee.
Through howling gale and shot and shell,
To win our victory.
‘Semper Paratus’ is our guide,
Our pledge, our motto, too.
We’re ‘Always Ready,’ do or die!
Aye! Coast Guard, we fight for you.
From Aztec shore to Arctic zone,
To Europe and Far East.
The Flag is carried by our ships,
In times of war and peace.
And never have we struck it yet,
In spite of foe-men’s might,
Who cheered our crews and cheered again,
For showing how to fight.
We’re always ready for the call,
We place our trust in Thee.
Through howling gale and shot and shell,
To win our victory.
‘Semper Paratus’ is our guide,
Our pledge, our motto, too.
We’re ‘Always Ready,’ do or die! Aye!
Coast Guard, we fight for you.
SURVEYOR and NARCISSUS,
The EAGLE and DISPATCH,
The HUDSON and the TAMPA
The names are hard to match;
From Barrow’s shores to Paraguay,
Great Lakes or ocean’s wave,
The Coast Guard fought
through storms and winds
To punish or to save.
We’re always ready for the call,
We place our trust in Thee.
Through howling gale and shot and shell,
To win our victory.
‘Semper Paratus’ is our guide,
Our pledge, our motto, too.
We’re ‘Always Ready,’ do or die!
Aye! Coast Guard, we fight for you.
Aye, we’ve been ‘Always Ready’
To do, to fight, or die
Write glory to the shield we wear
In letters to the sky.
To sink the foe or save the maimed
Our mission and our pride
We’ll carry on ’til Kingdom Come
Ideals for which we’ve died.
We’re always ready for the call,
We place our trust in Thee.
Through howling gale and shot and shell,
To win our victory.
‘Semper Paratus’ is our guide,
Our pledge, our motto, too.
We’re ‘Always Ready,’ do or die!
Aye! Coast Guard, we fight for you.
