Keep him safe and sound,
While he's dreaming be around,
If he should wake at night,
Tell him it will be alright.
Keep him tough and strong,
Focused when the days are long,
Tell him that I truely love him,
If he's looking sad and grim.
Keep the love and the fire,
Grant his every dream and desire,
Guide us in the right path,
Together as a whole, not in half.
When time is up I believe,
His goal he will achieve,
He's handsome, smart, and brave you see
With faith and love, a Marine he will be.
