To: "The Marine Hymn"
When the drill instructor yells "LEFT FACE!"
Better hear those eyeballs click.
If you have three faces never mind;
Toss a coin and take your pick.
When you're shipped out you'll see lots of space
And some mighty strange latrines;
And you'll rue the day you ever heard
Of the Outer Space Marines!
If you've two legs, four legs, six or eight;
Seventeen or none at all;
When the troop ship dumps you to your fate
You will hit the mud and crawl.
Whether Earthman, Kklup, or Zapphotuul,
When the buzz-beam's burning red,
There is just one universal rule:
Guard your ass and duck your head!
