Anchors Aweigh

Anchors Aweigh

In tribute to the US Naval Academy Class of '55 (Bill's graduating class), this morning's theme song is Anchors Aweigh.

Move 'em out!!!

Anchors Aweigh (Revised Lyrics, 1926)
George D. Lottman

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!

Yo ho there shipmate
Take the fighting to the far off seas

Yo ho there messmate
Hear the wailing of the wild banshees
All hands, fire brands
Let's Blast them as we go. So

Verse 2
Anchors Aweigh my boys
Anchors Aweigh
Farewell to college joys

We sail at break of day day day day
Through our last night on shore
Drink to the foam
Until we meet once more
Here's wishing you a happy voyage home!

Heave a ho there sailor
Everybody drink up while you may

Heave a ho there sailor
For your gonna sail at break of day
Drink away, Drink away,
For you sail at break of day, Hey!
