We raise our hand and take the vow,
Parris Island, San Diego, Quantico bound.
We endure the training, the testing, the pain,
and in the end we stand amazed.
Upon our collar an emblem rests,
reminding us, we have joined the best.
Stand tall, head high, chest out with pride,
one history, one legend, one family tried.
Our brothers and sisters in memorial we drink,
no greater, no lesser given by each.
One Corps, one Nation, one God we trust,
Marines forever, forever us.
