Sea Cadets Uniform Manual

Anchors Aweigh

Stand Navy out to sea
Fight our battle cry
We’ll never change our course
So vicious foes steer shy-y-y-y
Roll out the TNT, anchors aweigh
Sail on to victory
And sink their bones to Davy Jones


Anchors aweigh my boys
Anchors aweigh
Farewell to foreign shores
We sail at the break of day-y-y-y
Through our last night on shore
Drink to the foam
Until we meet once more
Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home

Blue of the mighty deep

Gold of God’s great sun
Let these colors be
Till all of time be done, done, done, done
On seven seas we learn
Navy’s stern call
Faith, courage, service true
With honor over honor over all
