The Singing Marine is a 1937 American musical film starring Dick Powell, the last of his trio of service-related Warners films. A young Marine (Dick Powell) develops an inflated ego after winning a talent contest in The Singing Marine (1937), the movie that gave the U.S. Marines their theme song.

Here are the lyrics:

There’s gotta be pork, there’s gotta be beans,
In order to fill up and fatten the fightin’ Marines,
The mighty Marines.
We carry all our vitamins inside a little can,
For corned beef is a delicacy in China or Japan;
And so, we’re ready to go, wherever we go,
We know that we go prepared
To fight the foe or see that we keep ’em scared;
On land we always land a bit of femininity,
And then we hear the bugle blow,
And where the heck are we?


Over the sea let’s go, men!
We’re shovin’ right off,
We’re shovin’ right off again;
Nobody knows where or when,
We’re shovin’ right off,
We’re shovin’ right off again.
It may be Shanghai,
Farewell and goodbye;
Sally and Sue, don’t be blue;
We’ll just be gone for years and years and then,
We’re shovin’ right off for home again!
