Gods Judgement of a MarineThe Marine waited quietly for the judgement of his God,Gods Judgement of a Marine by Zelenn-Deis
Which must always come to pass,
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass,
"Well now you DevilDog,
How shall I deal with you?,
Have you always turned the other cheek?,
To my Church have you been true?,"
The Marine squared his shoulders and said,
"No lord I guess I ain't,
Cause those of us who carry guns,
Can't always be a saint,
I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was rough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
Cause the streets are awfully tough,"
"But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep,
Though I worked alot of overtime,
When the bills just got too steep,
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears,"
"I know I don't deserve a place,
Among the people here,
They never wanted me around,
Except to fight their fears,
But if You've a place for me here lord,
It needn't be so grand,
I never had nor expected to much
Why am I a Marine?You can keep your Army khaki,Why am I a Marine? by Passedoutdrunk
You can keep your Navy Blue,
I have the world's best fighting man,
To introduce to you.
His uniform is different,
The best you've ever seen.
The German's call him "Devil Dog"
His real name is "Marine".
He was born on Parris Island,
The place where God forgot.
The sand is eighteen inches deep
The sun is blazing hot.
He gets up every morning,
Before the rising sun.
He 'll run a hundred miles and more,
Before the day is done.
He's deadly with a rifle,
A bayonet made of steel.
He took the warriors calling card,
He's mastered how to kill.
And when he gets to heaven,
St. Peter he will tell,
One more Marine reporting sir,
I've served my time in Hell.
So listen all you young girls,
To what I have to say
Go find yourself a young Marine,
To love you every day.
He'll hug you and he'll kiss you,
And treat you like a queen.
There is no better fighting man:
THE UNITED STATES MARINE!
