From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli;
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;
have fought in ev'ry clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny
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
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.
