Dedicated to the U.S. Marines – You can Have

Dedicated to the U.S. Marines
by Bob Denny

You can have your army khaki,
You can have your navy blue,
But there's still another fighter
I'll introduce to you.

His uniform is different,
The best you've ever seen,
The enemy, calls him devil-dog,
But his real name is Marine.

Some are trained at Paris Island,
The land that God forgot,
Where the sand is fourteen inches deep
And the sun is scorching hot.

He has a set many a table
And many a dish he has dried
He also learned to make a bunk,
A broom he sure can guide.

He's peeled a million onions
and twice as many "spuds".
And he spends all his leisure time
Washing up his duds.

So girls, take a little tip
I'm handing it to you,
Just get yourself a good marine
For there's nothing he can't do.
And when he gets to the Pearly gates
To Saint Peter He will tell,
"Another Marine reporting Sir,
I've done served my time in hell."

I Learned In The "40's"
