It started back in '94 with the passing of a Boston Jake
And all it took to grab my heart was the sound that the bagpipes made
So on with my life I go with experiences gained through work
But the dream to get on the job in my heart and mind always keeping me focussed

It was a tribute to a fallen brother and from across the nation
Peers showed up to show their appreciation

Boston Jakes are on duty and they're ready
At a blaze or incident, so focussed and real steady

In double zero the job came in, the dream was realized
I felt a sense of purpose, pride and complete fullfillment
But with the job comes real life danger, sacrifices that's the code spoke
The territory that goes with my decision to take the job

Boston Jakes are on duty and they're ready
At a blaze or incident, so focussed and real steady
Boston Jakes committed to the people they serve
Never hesitating to jump to action or lend a hand
