Subject: RE: us navy drinking songs
Here's a late edition to the collection, late because it was actually composed as a poem by a Navy officer in World War 1, Burt Franklin Jenness: Click here for lyrics and MP3 Sample!

It's called "Ballad of the Old Navy" and describes a glorious spree and brawl on the lower East Side of New York City.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble
