Anchors Aweigh (1906 version)
from the Naval History & Heritage Command website
Stand Navy out to sea, Fight our Battle Cry;
We’ll never change our course, So Army you steer shy-y-y-y.
Roll out the TNT, 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 on shore, Drink to the foam,
Until we meet once more. Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home.
Blue of the Mighty Deep; Gold of God’s Sun
Let these colors be till all of time be done, done, done,
On seven seas we learn Navy’s stern call:
Faith, Courage, Service true, with Honor, Over Honor, Over All.
Revised Lyrics of 1997 by MCPON John Hagen, USN (Ret) which is used today:
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 TNT, anchors aweigh!
Sail on to victory, and sink their bones to Davy Jones, hooray!
Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh!
Farewell to Foreign Shores, 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!
Blue of the mighty deep, Gold of God’s great sun;
Let these our colors be, Till All of time be done-n-n-ne;
On seven seas we learn, Navy’s stern call:
Faith, courage, service true, With honor over, honor over all!
