Queen of Battle

Marine Corps Marching Cadence

Up in the morning at a quarter to four
I grab my pack, I’m out the door
My baby asks me where I’ll go
I’ll tell her “Baby I don’t know”

Hail, hail, infantry
The Queen of Battle follows me
The Marine Corps life is the life for me
‘Cause nothing in this life is free

Drop me off in the battle zone
A thousand miles away from home
I pray to God and ask him why
When freedom calls I have to die

Hail, hail, infantry
The Queen of Battle follows me
The Marine Corps life is the life for me
‘Cause nothing in this life is free

Laying on a foreign land
Bleeding on the foreign sand
The ground is stained a crimson red
Before they find me I’ll be dead

Hail, hail, infantry
The Queen of Battle follows me
The Marine Corps life is the life for me
‘Cause nothing in this life is free

Hail, hail, infantry
The Queen of Battle follows me
The Marine Corps life is the life for me
‘Cause nothing in this life is free
