Let's see, for the Army, to the tune "Caissons Go Rolling Along" the words are:

"Was it high, was it low,
"Where the Hell did that one go...
"And the caissons go rolling along"

For the Navy, to the tune "Anchors Aweigh" sing:

"Let's go get laid, my boys,
Let's go get laid ..."

While accurate, some prudes prefer:

"What do you do with a drunken sailor,
"What do you do with a drunken sailor,
"What do you do with a drunken sailor,
"Ear-lie in the morning."

"Stick him in the bilge and make him drink it,
"Stick him in the bilge and make him drink it,
"Stick him in the bilge and make him drink it,
"Ear-lie in the morning."

"Heave-ho and up she rises,
"Heave-ho and up she rises,
"Heave-ho and up she rises,
"Ear-lie in the morning."

"Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
"Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
"Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
"Ear-lie in the morning."

"Heave-ho and up she rises, ...

Well, you get the idea.

Let's see, now, for those Air Force pukes there's always:

"Off we go, into the wild blur yonder,
"Lost again, sonofabitch!"

OR

"The pilot tried to loop-the-loop at zero-zero feet,
"The pilot tried to loop-the-loop at zero-zero feet,
"The pilot tried to loop-the-loop at zero-zero feet,
"He ain't gonna fly no more.

"Gory, gory what a hell of a way to die,
"Gory, gory what a hell of a way to die,
"Gory, gory what a hell of a way to die,
"He ain't gonna fly no more."

Let's not forget the paratroops, rangers, men who jump from perfectly good planes with not a thing wrong with them. (And they say Marines are dumb!).

"There was blood upon the risers,
"There was brains upon his chute,
"Intestines were a-dangling from his paratrooper suit,
"He was a mess, they picked him up and poured him from his boots,
"He ain't gonna jump no more."

"Gory, gory what a hell of a way to die,
"Gory, gory what a hell of a way to die,
"Gory, gory what a hell of a way to die,
"He ain't gonna jump no more."

The Coast Guard:

"I'm Popeye the sailor man,
"I'm Popeye the sailor man,
"I fights to the finich
"Cause I eats me spinach,
"I'm Popeye the sailor man."

And let's not forget the Marines. Marine, it's really an acronym. It either means Muscles Are Required, Intelligence Not Essential or My Ass Really Is Navy Equipment.

If I could upload a song track I would demonstrate this. Suffice to say the Marines Hymn was written so it could be sung to any tune! Try it: "Yellow Rose of Texas", "Riders in the Sky", pick a song and as it plays, substitute the Marines Hymn.

For any of you with lard for brains, this message was intended as humor, not a denigration of the brave men and women who have put their lives on the line.

Love it. It also says something that you can sing the Marines Hymn to "The House of the Rising Sun."

Like the previous poster said about humor - my Dad was a Marine, and he would laugh his tookus off at this were he still here!

While I get that it is intended to be humorous, I cannot for the life of me figure out what, if any, relevance it has to WitP-AE? Or even game playing in general? Perhaps it is just me being my curmudgeonly self?
