" 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 Marines "
" Our flag's unfurled to every breeze from dawn to setting sun. We have fought in every clime and place, where we could take our gun. From 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 to health to you and to our Corps which we are proud to serve. In many a strife we've fought for life and we've never lost our nerve. If the Army or the Navy ever look on heaven's scenes, they will find the streets are guarded by United States Marines "
