Think this weeks music 04/03/2008 is from Zulu, the classic three reeler we were always shown on board the grey funnels. They some how always either lost a reel or showed them in the wrong order, didn't matter though its a cracking movie.

I'm quite confident no one will though, so prove me wrong lol.Twisted Evil

It's The Marine Corps Hymn, The Halls of Montezuma.

Lyrics:
From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We will fight our country's battles
In the air, on land and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
of United States Marine.

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in ev'ry clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job--
The United States Marines.

Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve
In many a strife we've fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines


Not sure exactly which films it's in, I'd be surprised if it's not in the 1950 Richard Widmark film called The Halls of Montezuma:lol!:
It's probably in The Sands of Iwo Jima and also The Green Berets somewhere but they use the Ballad of the Green Berets as the main theme for that one.
