The Few, The Proud

The Few, The Proud


From the halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli
You fight our country's battles
In ther air, on land, and sea.
First to fight for right and freedom
And to Keep our honor clean
You are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.
When I see you sitting there
Looking deep into my eyes
I think of all the memories
That help the days go by.
The day we met, our first glance, first kiss
I knew there was something there
But after you started figuring me out
I realized how much I cared.
So I have this Marine staring at me
Who can pick apart my mind
He sees the things nobody else can see
But im not scared of what he'll find.
He knows I care about what he does
How he does it, and where
He's on my mind when I sleep and wake up
He knows the feeling is there.
This feeling is called love
I do it with all my heart
I feel it when I'm with him
I miss it when we're apart.
But when he's all the way up there
And I'm all the way down here
I know he knows I miss him
I think that point is clear.
So when i say I love you
Know my heart and love is vowed
Remember that I always will
To you, The Few, The Proud.
