COON SKIN (Marine Running Cadence)

Coon skin and alligator hide
Make a pair of jump boots just the right size
Shine ’em up, lace ’em up, put ’em on your feet
A good pair of jump boots can’t be beat

 

The Cowboy (USMC Running Cadence)

Hey, Hey, what do you say,
I’m goin’ to the rod-e-o today.

I drew a bad bull, heard he was a bear,
But I can hang for 8, so I just don’t care.

Tie up, bear down, sittin’ on my bull,
I’m just waitin’ for the gate to pull.

Out from the chute blows my old ride,
It’s a wonder that I’m still alive.

Just right then the 8 seconds pass,
I jump right off of that bull’s ass.

Quick, turn around and what do I see?
That old bull come a-chargin’ at me.

I pull a cut-down 12-gauge from my hip,
And send that bull on a little trip.

I’m the meanest cowboy that you ever did see,
U.S.M.C Infantry!

 

Back In 1775 – (Marine Running Cadence)

Back In 1775
My Marine Corps Came Alive

First There Came The Color Gold
To Show The World That We Are Bold

Then There Came The Color Blue
To Show The World That We Are True

Then There Came the Color Red
To Show The World The Blood We have

Then There Came The Color White
To Show The World That We Can Fight

Then There Came The Color Green
To Show The World That We Are Mean

 

Born to be a Marine (Marine Running Cadence)

TALKIN TO MY DADDY ON HIS DYING BED
WITH A SMILE ON HIS FACE THIS IS WHAT HE SAID
WHEN I CAME OUT OF MY MOTHERS WOMB
I FOUND MYSELF IN THE DELIVERY ROOM
ALL BLOODY AND WHITE I RAPPELLED TO THE FLOOR
CUT THE UMBILICAL AND CRAWLED TO THE DOOR
CRUISED THE WARD AND I’M LOOKIN GOOD
BABY LITTLE MARINE LIKE I SHOULD
CAMOUFLAGE DIAPER BLACK BABY SHOES
BUTTER KNIFE SWORD AND BABY DRESS BLUES
HUMVEE STROLLER TRICYCLE TANK
THREE DIAPER PINS ON MY COLLER FOR RANK
DOWN THE HALL I HEARD SOME CRYING LIKE HECK
WALKED RIGHT IN CALLED ATTENTION ON DECK
LISTEN UP WIMPS I’M IN COMMAND
ALL YOUR CRYIN AND YOUR SNIVELIN I WILL NOT STAND
THEY SAID AYE AYE SIR AND I HAD IT MADE
I WAS COMMANDING OFFICER OF THE BABY BRIGADE

Old Lady (Marine running Cadence)

I saw an old lady walkin’ down the street.
She had a chute on her back, and jump boots on her feet.
I said, “Hey, Old Lady, where you goin’ to?”
She said, “I’m goin’ to the Army Airborne School.”
I said, “Hey, Old Lady, I think you’re too old;
You’d better leave that stuff to the brave and the bold.”
She said, “Listen, Sonny, I’m talking to you;
I’m an instructor at the Airborne School.”

I saw the same old lady walkin’ down the street.
She had a pack on her back, jungle boots on her feet.
I said, “Hey, Old Lady, where you goin’ to?”
She said, “I’m goin’ to Marine Corps Recon School.”
I said, “Hey, Old Lady, I think you’re too old;
You’d better leave that stuff to the brave and the bold.”
She said, “Listen, Sonny, I’m talking to you;
I’m an instructor at the Recon School.”

I saw the old lady walkin’ down the street.
She had a tank on her back, and fins on her feet.
I said, “Hey, Old Lady, where you goin’ to?”
She said, “I’m goin to the Navy Diving School.”
I said, “Hey, Old Lady, I think you’re too old;
You’d better leave that stuff to the brave and the bold.”
She said, “Listen, Sonny, I’m talking to you;
I’m an instructor at the Diving School.”

I turned to leave, and she spun me around;
She kicked me in the head, and threw me to the ground.
I looked up through my tears, and with a voice full of fear,
I begged, “Please, Old Lady, don’t kill me right here.”
She said, “Listn, Sonny, don’t you mess with me;
I’m Airborne, Recon, and UDT!”
