My Daddy-USMC

My Daddy-USMC
by Laine Estep

WHEN MY DADDY GOES TO WORK,
HE'S ALWAYS DRESSED IN GREEN.
HE HAS TO BE, BECAUSE YOU SEE,
HE'S A UNITED STATES MARINE.
MY DADDY IS SO VERY STRONG;
HE'S ALSO VERY BRAVE.
SO WHEN I FALL AND SKIN MY KNEES,
IT'S DADDY'S ARMS I CRAVE.
WHEN IN THIS WORLD THERE IS TROUBLE,
MY DADDY WILL BE ON THE SCENE.
HE WILL, BECAUSE HE IS, YOU SEE,
A UNITED STATES MARINE.
WHEN MY DADDY HAS TO GO AWAY,
TO PROTECT SOME FAR OFF LAND,
MOMMY AND I WILL WAIT AND PRAY,
TO AGAIN HOLD DADDY'S HANDS.
MY DADDY WILL TELL ME STORIES,
ABOUT ALL THE THINGS HE'S SEEN,
WHILE HE WAS PROTECTING FREEDOM,
AS A UNITED STATES MARINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
