Where can you find pleasure
Search the world for treasure
Learn science technology
Where can you begin to make your dreams all come true
On the air or on the seas

Where can you learn to fly
play sports and ski dive
study oceanography
sign of for the big band
or sit in the grandstand
when your team and others meet

Chorus :
In the Navy
yes you can sail the seven seas
in the Navy
yes you can put your mind at ease
in the Navy
come on people and make a stand
in the Navy
can't you see we need a hand
in the Navy
come on protect the motherland
in the Navy
come on and join your fellow man
in the Navy
come on people and make a stand
in the Navy

They want you
They want you
They want you as a new recruit

If you like adventure
don't you wait to enter
the recruiting office fast
don't you hesitate
there is no need to wait
they're signing up new seamen fast
maybe you are too young to join us today
but don't you worry about a thing
for I'm sure there will be
always a good Navy protecting the lands and seas

Chorus

They want you
They want you
They want you as a new recruit
Oh me ?
But, but, but, I'm afraid of water !
Ey look men, I get seasick even watching them on my T.V.
They want you
Oh my goodness
They want you
What am I gonna do in a submarine ?
They want you
They want you
In the Navy

Chorus

    General CommentI noticed Cher is touring with the guys and coming to Australia. Are they bringing the USS Missourie? for her to sit on the gun?

    General Commenthaha, my friends and I made up a crazy version of this song! its pretty spastic:
    In the navy
    In the navy
    In the navy
    On the land
    Under the sea
    In a tree
    I’m a monkey
    I’m a walrus
    Tick tock
    Locket clocks
    Tell us the time
    In the navy
    There’s lots of gravy
    In the air force
    There’s lots of tomato sauce
    In the army
    There’s lots of salami
    Look at that cat!
    No, you look at that cat
    No, you look at that cat
    He’s so grey
    She’s so blaaaccckkk
    Shoes
    There’s a rock in my shoe
    There’s a sock in my shoe
    There’s jock in my shoe
    There’s a fox in my shoe
    There’s a clock in my shoe
    There’s a box in my shoe
    We’ve got lots in our shoes!

    as you can tell, we are a load of dickheads

    General CommentI cannot believe that only one of the village people is gay. They are all flaming. That is just weird.

    General CommentI'm sure the village people have plenty of experience with sea men and poop decks...
