Subject: RE: us navy drinking songs
Does anybody know the melody that goes with these words? (quoted in Evan Thomas' book Sea of Thunder);
    Oh, we're the boys in the CVEs,
    A little bit shaky in the knees,
    Our engines knock and cough and wheeze
    In Doug MacArthur's Navy.

    While Jeeps are not dependable
    Their actions are commendable
    But Gosh, they are expendable
    In Doug MacArthur'a Navy.
