One of my Seabee favorites....
We work like hell, we fight like hell,
And always come back for more:
The Navy's advance base engineers
On many a foreign shore.
On half the lousy islands
From here to Timbucto,
You'll find a hive of Seabees-
One hell of a fighting crew.
The admiral just dropped around
To chat the other night,
He said, "Now boys, I know you work
But you've also been trained to fight.
"So if there's any trouble, don't stop
To put on your jeans;
Just drop your tools, grab up your guns
And protect those poor marines."
"When you're afraid, keep your mind on what you have to do. And if you have been thoroughly prepared, you will not be afraid."
