"How About a Cheer for the Navy" as written by and I. Berlin....
The Army this, the Army that
Is all we heard from where we sat
Now how about a cheer for the Navy?
The Army's great, the Army's tough

But don't you think we've heard enough?
So how about a cheer for the Navy?
We know that Mister Stimson
Is solid as the rocks

But how about an orchid
For Secretary Knox?
The Army may be in the groove
But Walter Winchell won't approve

Unless you give a cheer for the Navy

Hip hip hooray
We haven't got long to stay
So how about one bouquet
For the Navy?

One word of praise that'd fall from your lips
One cheer and then we'll go back to our ships
Hip hip hooray
The Army has had its say

You're letting them get away
With the gravy
Just let them know
That an Army show

Could never be a hit without the Navy

The Army's what you may prefer
But in the social register
Is where you'll have to look for the Navy
If you would like to touch the gilt

Of Astor or a Vanderbilt
You'll have to come around to the Navy
The show was in the alley
It simply wouldn't do

Until the big finale
With Navy white and blue
The Army sails across the foam
The Navy always bring them home

So how about a cheer for the Navy?

Give a cheer, give a cheer, give a cheer, give a cheer
For the Navy
Just make it clear
That a rousing cheer

Is very much in order for the N-A-V-why
The Navy
Navy
