Our old buddy Davey, joined up with the Navy,
To keep his homeland secure.
Now he’s taking a trip, on some big Navy ship,
To what destination’s unsure.
But on this you can bet, when the enemy’s met
Old Dave they’ll surrender for sure.
While he’s off far away, on some deck with a sway,
Planning some job in construction,
We’ll be praying for Dave and his buddies who gave
Preventing our country’s destruction.
Every day that goes by, we will say with a sigh.
Godspeed to our men of conscription.
