Thread Name: What song do you want at your funeral?
Subject: RE: What song do you want at your funeral?
From the Halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli
We fight our Country's battles
On the air and on the sea
First to fight for right and Freedom
First to fight to keep our Honor clean
We are proud to claim the title of United States Marine

If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scene
They will find their wives are sleeping
With United States Marines

And then the whole damn gang can drink booze and play music till dawn.
The last guy we put under wanted to be shot out of a mortar. So we built one, loaded him up in 12 empty Budweiser cans (his favorite) with a small charge of black powder inside, and launched him out over the Oregon Desert to our accompanying cheers. Had a riotous good time!
