The Marines Hymn From the Halls of MontezumaTo the shores of Tripoli,We will fight out country's battlesIn the air, on land and sea.First to fight for right and freedomAnd to keep our honor clean.We are proud to claim the titleOf United States Marine.Our flag's unfurl'd to ev'ry breezeFrom dawn to setting sunWe have fought in ev'ry clime and placeWhere we could take a gun.In the snow of far off northern lands,And in sunny tropic scenes,You will find us always on the job - The United States Marines.Here's health to you and to our corps,Which we are proud to serve;In many a strife we've fought for life,And never lost our nerve.If the Army and the NavyEver look on Heaven's scenes,They will find the streets are guardedBy United States Marines.
