From the North and from the South we'll come
From the East and from the West
We will all enlist in the Young Marines
And forever do our best.
From the halls of all the grammar schools
To the shores of all our lakes
We will be the finest Young Marines
No matter what it takes.
Let the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts march;
Let the Cub Scouts strut and beam
Oh, you haven't seen the greatest yet
Til you've seen the Young Marines.
We salute the sailor boys in blue
And the Army in their greens.
We are proud to bear the title of
The U.S. Young Marines.
