SONG OF THE MARINE
OVER THE SEA -LET'S GO MEN
WE'RE SHOVIN' RIGHT OFF
WE'RE SHOVIN' RIGHT OFF AGAIN
NOBODY KNOWS WHERE OR WHEN
WE'RE SHOVIN' RIGHT OFF
WE'RE SHOVIN' RIGHT OFF AGAIN
IT MAY BE SHANGHAI
FAREWELL & GOOD -BY

SALLY & SUE DON'T BE BLUE
WE'LL JUST BE GONE FOR
YEARS AND YEARS AND THEN
WE'RE SHOVIN' RIGHT OFF FOR HOME
WE'RE SHOVIN' RIGHT OFF FOR HOME

Song of the Marines 1937
from the movie
"The Singing Marine" starring Dick Powell as PFC Bob Brent, a young Marine from Arkansas, impresses his comrades with his singing ability, and they pitch in to send him to New York to compete in an amateur contest. Success in the contest, however, sets him up for trouble in romance, in his career, and with the Corps. The finale here is from Shanghai and the famous 4th Marine Regiment - favorite pub OOO RRAH !!

This rousing good - fun song is coming back to the active United States Marine Corps bands and is sung at Center House Marine Barracks D.C. every Friday night. Unlike the sacred United States Marine Corps Hymn it is a drinking / relaxed salute to the world's most disciplined and aggressive fighting force .... Semper Fidelis Leathernecks ptb /

He wrote the music for the first blockbuster film musical, 42nd Street, directed and choreographed by Busby Berkeley, with whom he would collaborate on many musical films.
Over a career spanning four decades, Warren wrote over 800 songs. Other well-known Warren hits included "I Only Have Eyes for You", "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby", "Jeepers Creepers", "The Gold Diggers' Song (We're in the Money)", "That's Amore", "The More I See You", "At Last" and "Chattanooga Choo Choo" (the last of which was the first gold record in history). One of America's most prolific film composers, Warren's songs have been featured in over 300 films.
