Anchors Aweigh

Album: Victory At Sea (1906)
  • Stand Navy out to sea, fight our battle cry!
    We'll never change our course so vicious foes steer shy-y-y-y!
    Roll out the TNT, anchors aweigh!
    Sail on to victory, and sink their bones to Davy Jones, hooray!

    Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh!
    Farewell to Foreign Shores, we sail at break of day-ay-ay-ay;
    Through our last night ashore, drink to the foam,
    Until we meet once more, here's wishing you a happy voyage home!

    Blue of the mighty deep, Gold of God's great sun;
    Let these our colors be, Till All of time be done-n-n-ne;
    On seven seas we learn, Navy's stern call:
    Faith, courage, service true, With honor over, honor over all. Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
