IT WAS JUST THE OTHER DAY,
WHEN I HEARD MY MOTHER SAY:
SHE HAD TAKEN A CALL FOR ME,
FROM THE U_U_U.S.M.C.

SOUND OFF,
1-2,  --3-4 !

I_I_I CALLED THAT RECRUITER BACK,
AND I TOLD HIM HELL NO JACK !
I DON'T WANNA GO,
I DON'T WANNA GO !
NOW I'M AT RECRUIT DEPOT?

SOUND OFF,
1-2,  --3-4 !

REMEMBER WHAT IT WAS BEFORE?
WHEN A DECK WAS CALLED A FLOOR.
NOW IT'S A BULKHEAD, NOT A WALL.
DOESN'T THAT JUST ABOUT SAY IT ALL?

SOUND OFF,
1-2,  --3-4 !

WHEN I LEFT THE BARBER'S CHAIR,
I FOUND OUT I HAD NO HAIR !
I AM GOING TO LEARN TO SHOOT.
UNTIL I DO I'LL BE A BOOT.

SOUND OFF,
1-2,  --3-4 !

I DON'T KNOW HOW LONG I'LL STAY,
BUT I GET 3 SQUARES A DAY.
THERE ARE TIMES I'D LIKE TO CRY,
BUT THEN THERE IS, --MY D.I.

SOUND OFF,
1-2,  --3-4 !

HE IS WITH ME EVERY DAY,
TRYIN' TO GET ME SQUARED AWAY.
IF HE LEAVES I WON'T BE SAD,
'CAUSE HE GETS ME MIGHTY MAD.

SOUND OFF,
1-2,  --3-4 !

EVERYWHERE HE MAKES ME MARCH.
FIRST TO THE LEFT, AND THEN TO THE RIGHT,
THEN DO IT AGAIN TO GET IT RIGHT.

SOUND OFF,
1-2,  --3-4 !

EVERY MORNING I MUST RUN.
AFTER 6 MILES IT'S NO FUN.
IF I GET A MOMENT FREE,
MUST GET READY FOR P-T.

SOUND OFF,
1-2,  --3-4 !

ONLY WHEN I'M IN A CLASS,
CAN I REST MY TIRED ASS.
NOR IS THERE RELIEF AT NIGHT,
AS THE HEAD IS LOCKED UP TIGHT.

SOUND OFF,
1-2,  --3-4 !

FOR NOW THIS IS THE ONLY WORD,
I AM BUT A LOWLY T.U.R.D.
SOON THERE'LL BE A CHANGE OF SCENE,
WHEN I BECOME A REAL MARINE.

SOUND OFF,
1-2,  --3-4 !

I_I_I CALLED THAT RECRUITER BACK,
AND I TOLD HIM HELL NO JACK !
I DON'T WANNA GO,
I DON'T WANNA GO !
NOW I'M AT RECRUIT DEPOT?

1-2,  --3-4 !,
I LOVE THE MARINE CORPS !
