Subject: RE: us navy drinking songs
All of that not withstanding, I remember one of my first chief having served through three wars, (World War 2, Korea and Vietnam) Singing "Bell bottomed trousers". I do know that the tradition has pretty much died out mainly because of fools mentioned above. But at one time the Navy had songs like "The Cumberland", "Old Ironsides" and "THe Alabama" Let me know how the search Goes.
