Anchors Aweigh (A.H. Miles and Charles Zimmerman) (Revised lyrics--last 2 verses-- by George D. Lottman) Stand, Navy, down the field Sails set to the sky; We'll never change our course So Army, you steer shy. Roll up the score, Navy Anchor's aweigh! Sail, Navy, down the field And sink the Army, sink the Army grey. Get under way, Navy Decks cleared for the fray. We'll hoist the Navy blue So Army, down your grey-ey-ey-ey Full speed ahead, Navy, Army, Heave to! Furl black and grey and gold And hoist the Navy, hoist the Navy blue. Blue of the seven seas, Gold of God's great sun, Let these our colours be 'Til all of time be done-ne-ne-ne By Severn shore we learn Navy's stern call; Faith, courage, service true With honor over, honor over all 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 T. N. T. Anchors Aweigh Sail on to victory and sink their bones to Davy Jones hooray! Anchors aweigh, my boys, Anchors aweigh Farewell to college joys, We sail at break of day-ay-ay-ay Through our last night ashore, Drink to the foam. And 'til we meet once more, Here's wishing you a happy voyage home. Copyright Robbins Music Corp.
