The Lyrics

Based on an incident a few months ago where the Navy was testing a ship close to Daytona Beach and caused an earthquake
Where can you explode stuff, on your own ships always
And use some tnt?
Where can you have fun testing your ship all the time
And not too far out to sea?
Where can you affect land, and cause some disruptions
Bother Wile E. Coyote?
Let’s go make an earthquake, area around shakes
Not far enough out to sea

In the navy
You’ll make earthquakes easily
In the navy
Meteorologists queasy
In the navy
Affect people, out there on the land
In the navy, in the navy
Can't you see we’re way too close

In the navy
The admiral ordered it oh
In the navy
We know that it’s a mistake though
In the navy
Come on people and feel the shake
In the navy, in the navy, in the navy, oh

Buckle down, buckle down
Yeah you might feel us as we test

If you like adventure, then live near any ship
Oh, not too long will it last
Don't you hide down there, table might fall on you
We might make people move real fast
Maybe we will show up on the Richter scale
But don't you worry 'bout a thing
For it’s only an unnatural earthquake
To protect the land and sea

In the navy
Oops, we might have been way too close
In the navy
Far enough, the captain supposed
In the navy
Oh but people, felt all of it though
In the navy, in the navy
Earthquake insurance wanted

In the navy
Oh no it shouldn’t have happened
In the navy
Oh why can’t we just understand
In the navy
Shaking people so they can’t stand
In the navy, in the navy, in the navy, in the navy

A mistake, a blunder
It made much more noise than thunder
Earthquake?
No they don’t happen here
Maybe I drank way too much beer
But, but, but, the earth done quaketh
You felt it too?
I get seasick even watchin' it on TV

My neighbors all called me, in the navy
Oh my goodness
What is this
Where are we supposed to live to escape this?
Don’t want this
Blunders they put you through in the navy

In the navy
You can explode the seven seas
In the navy
You can make earthquakes easily
In the navy
It’s hurting you and It’s hurting me
In the navy, in the navy
Can't you see we need some brains

In the navy
Come on, go shake the motherland
In the navy
Cause earthquakes for your fellow man
In the navy
Make the people shake if they stand

Prelude to Calexit?

Not bad, Larry. I've parodied this song elsewhere with "In The Jihad" This is no that easy as the lyrics are actually pretty amateurish and dont track the melody all that closely ... Just a couple of rhyming glitches, so 455

Pacing is off, uneven...

Thanks Onslaught (this was off the coast of Florida), Callmelennie, Jeff (see Callmelennie's comment, that's how it was in the OS)

They gotta' test it somewhere for efficacy.

Larry, I grew up listening to the Village People. Your pacing is off. I gave you 4's. Don't be an ingrate.

Ok, I was going by the lyrics I found on metrolyrics though (and constantly counting syllables as I always do). That's fine however. Funny comment Onslaught

Best test is to sing your version to see if it matches up. Try it. Yours falls short in several spots.

It was a simple shock trial using a 10,000 lb explosive detonated nearby the ship. It generated a small 3.7 seismic disturbance. It's used to test the structural integrity of the ship under simulated attack.

Thanks Rob (I don't think they're supposed to cause earthquakes on land though, that's why people are shocked and it gets news coverage when it happens)
Rob Arndt - January 30, 2017 - Report this comment
A 3.7 is nothing (I live in California). By Richter scale it was minor. A real earthquake is 6-8+. The ship was the USS Jackson. Other things can cause seismic disturbances besides explosives like heavy construction and even supersonic flight. Florida has experienced many, so the Navy test is not unique.

Ok. Haven't gone through an earthquake so don't know
