The Lyrics

At last!
Join The Marines!

it is signup day..
heard it there upon the radio
serving in any state it's fun, oh!
Our mothers cried
Sail along, who'd blame them
Now you're grown, so grown, now I must say more than ever...join the marines!
tour the, tour the, tour the U.S.A!
And we can sail just like our fathers

Join the marines, oh I swear (what he means)
At this moment, the draft is opening up.
to a code we must dress, and i must now confess
i'm shipworthy
Ah join the marines!

join the marines..

sent from state to state,
to serve Uncle Sam,
with scurvy smells.
you don't even work hard here.
But not us (no never), no not us (no never)
We are far too young and clever
Remember...
tour the, tour the, tour the U.S.A
Marines, they'll sing this song forever

join the marines oh I swear (what he means)
Ah come on, let's give it our everything
to a code we must dress - Marines (tell him yes)
Ah come on let's, Ah join the marines

Come on! join the marines, oh yeah!
Come on! join the marines, oh yeah!
Now you are grown. (Tour the..tour the) Now you have shown. (Tour the..tour the U.S.A)
Oh..marines...Say..come and do..(Come on, join the Marines, oh yeah)
Now I must say more than ever. (tour the U.S.A)
Things 'round here will change (tour the, tour the U.s.A)
tour the, (Join the marines, oh yeah!) tour the, tour the U.S.A (tour the, tour the U.S.A)

Join the marines, oh I swear (what he means)
At this moment, the draft is opening up.
to a code we must dress, and i must now confess
i'm shipworthy
Ah join the marines!

Join the marines, oh I swear (what he means)
At this moment, the draft is opening up.
to a code we must dress, and i must now confess
i'm shipworthy
Ah join the marines!

It's a good parady, but I couldn't find anything in it to laugh at. I usually expect them to be funny, so I can wet my pants with laughter. I'm sorry to say this, but I thought it was lame. It should be made funnier, like somebody in the song drowning or one of the sailors coming out and admitting he's gay. Now that's a funny parady!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
