Just a Thought: The Marine Hymn

by Jordy Greenblatt

There’s a line in the Marine Hymn about how, if the army and navy were both destroyed, the streets will be guarded by the Marines. I appreciate the sentiment but I can’t help but wonder; what is this scenario they’re imagining? I’m not sure that part of the song should be sung as cheerfully and as upbeat as the melody suggests.
