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 gazed on heaven's scenes
They would find the streets are guarded by, The United States Marines
