from the halls

from the halls of Montezuma
to the sands of Iwo Jima flag raising
a few good men
jump right out and shout
UUH-rah
this is my Rifle
scuttlebutt has it
when i kill i feel recoil
in the air, on land and sea

jarheads, leathernecks and devil dogs
locate, close with and destroy
by fire and maneuver
seize, hold and defend
Eagle, globe and anchor

momma, momma canít you see
that woman dressed in red
tell it to the Marines
first to fight
joey
recon daddy gonna take a little trip
do or die
Semper Fi
good night Chesty Puller, wherever you are


++++

All of these are US Marine expressions, chants, or a twist on them
Scuttlebutt = water cooler or rumor (place where rumors are spread)
Joey = the name of the guy who we are told is dating our girlfriend while we in training
