"Semper Fi", Marine

Updated on April 11, 2017


Always first to go, your patriotism, to show,

Semper Fi, Marine, all our thanks, do know.

On foreign shores, you always lead the way,

Lay down your life, defend our world today.


Refrain:

On the land, by sea and in the air,

We can count on you always to be there,

You do make this country proud,

Make us want to shout out loud,

You are the United States Marines.



You have our attention, Marine.
You have our attention, Marine.


You fight for this country, its freedom, to defend,

Never fearing a fight, a strong message to send..

The eagle, globe and anchor, serves our country well,

Defeat all our enemies, in that you shall never fail!


Refrain:

On the land, by sea, and in the air,

We can count on you to always be there.

You do make this country proud,

Make us all want to shout out loud,

You are the United States Marines.





Semper Fidelis (Always Faithful)
Semper Fidelis (Always Faithful)


In the dark of night or in the brightest day,

We can count on you to lead the way.

No matter the dangers or the enemy's size,

You will answer every call, as the eagle flies.


Refrain:

On the land, by sea and in the air,

We can count on you always to be there.

You do make this country proud,

Makes us all want to shout out loud,

You are the United States Marines.


"Always faithful"
"Always faithful"


You go to war on foot, by ships and in planes,

Each fight you win counts, so our country gains.

You never give up, as you make your battle cry,

It's Semper Fi, friends, it's Semper Fi. that's why.


Refrain:

On the land, by sea, and in the air,

We can count on you to always be there.

You do make this country proud,

Makes us all want to shout out loud.

You are the United States Marines.

You are the United States Marines...

      Thank you Jamie. I was not in the Marines, though I tried my best, Uncle Sam refused to take me because my spine was injured playing high school football. I lost many friends in the war and have always felt guilty I did not go. Blessings to you and family my friend, whonu.
