The Song of the Seabees (1943)

Judy Garland sang this in tribute to the Seabees. 
My Dad, Howard Thomas Pitts, was a Seabee during WWII.

Song Words by Sam M. Lewis
Song Music by Peter de Rose

We're the Seabees of the Navy
We can build and we can fight
We'll pave the way to victory
And guard it day and night
And we promise that we’ll remember
The "Seventh of December"

We're the Seabees of the Navy
Bees of the Seven Seas

The Navy wanted men
That's where we came in
Mister Brown and Mister Jones
The Owens, the Cohens and Flynn
The Navy wanted more
Of Uncle Sammy's kin
So we all joined up
And brother we're in to win.

Seabees Moto: Can do, will do, did
