Anchors Aweigh

Anchors Aweigh  
by the U.S. Navy Band  
Original Lyrics

Verse 1
 Stand Navy down the field, sails set to the sky.
 We'll never change our course, so Army you steer shy-y-y-y.
 Roll up the score, Navy, Anchors Aweigh.
 Sail Navy down the field and sink the Army, sink the Army Grey. 

Verse 2
 Get underway, Navy, Decks cleared for the fray,
 We'll hoist true Navy Blue So Army down your Grey-y-y-y.
 Full speed ahead, Navy; Army heave to,
 Furl Black and Grey and Gold and hoist the Navy, hoist the Navy Blue

Verse 3
 Blue of the Seven Seas; Gold of God's great sun
 Let these our colors be Till all of time be done-n-n-ne,
 By Severn shore we learn Navy's stern call:
 Faith, courage, service true With honor over, honor over all.

Revised Lyrics
by George D. Lottman
 Verse 2 is the one most widely sung.

Verse 1
 Stand, Navy, out to sea, Fight our battle cry;
 We'll never change our course, So vicious foe steer shy-y-y-y.
 Roll out the TNT, Anchors Aweigh. Sail on to victory
 And sink their bones to Davy Jones, hooray!

Verse 2
 Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh.
 Farewell to college joys, we sail at break of day-ay-ay-ay.
 Through our last night on shore, drink to the foam,
 Until we meet once more. Here's wishing you a happy voyage home
