OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Circle left
Anchors aweigh my boys
Anchors aweigh

Allemande left on the corner girl and you do a dosado
Boys star by the left and roll it round the ring you go
Turn thru and then left allemande
Swing and then you promenade
Sail on to victory sink their bones to Davy Jones' hooray

* Stand, Navy, out to sea
Fight, our battle cry


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads slide thru, double pass thru, centers in
Cast off 3/4 round move up to the middle and back
You pass thru tag the line
Cloverleaf and then the centers pass thru
Slide thru square thru three hands and go
Swing and then you promenade
Sail on to victory sink their bones to Davy Jones' hooray

* Until we meet once more, here's wishing you a happy voyage home

Anchors Aweigh
 
 

(Currently taught lyrics)

Stand Navy out to sea
Fight our battle cry:
We'll never change our course
So vicious foes steer shy-y-y-y
Roll out the T. N. T.
Anchors Aweigh
Sail on to victory
And sink their bones to Davy Jones, hooray!

Yo ho there shipmate
Take the fighting to the far off seas
Yo ho there messmate
Hear the wailing of the wild banshees
All hands, fire brands
Let's Blast them as we go. So

Anchors Aweigh my boys
Anchors Aweigh
Farewell to college joys (or "Farewell to foreign shores")
We sail at break of day day day day
Through our last night ashore
Drink to the foam
Until we meet once more
Here's wishing you a happy voyage home!

Heave a ho there sailor
Everybody drink up while you may
Heave a ho there sailor
For your gonna sail at break of day
Drink away, Drink away,
For you sail at break of day, Hey!

Blue of the Mighty Deep
Gold of God's Sun
Let these our colors be
Till all time be done
On seven seas we learn
Navy's stern call
Faith, Courage, Service True
With Honor Over, Honor Over All.

(Original lyrics)

Stand Navy down the field, sails set to the sky.
We'll never change our course, so Army you steer shy-y-y-y.
Roll up the score, Navy, Anchors Aweigh.
Sail Navy down the field and sink the Army, sink the Army Grey.

Get underway, Navy, Decks cleared for the fray,
We'll hoist true Navy Blue So Army down your Grey-y-y-y.
Full speed ahead, Navy; Army heave to,
Furl Black and Grey and Gold and hoist the Navy, hoist the Navy Blue

(last stanza by Royal Lovell)

Blue of the Seven Seas; Gold of God's great sun
Let these our colors be Till all of time be done-n-n-ne,
By Severn shore we learn Navy's stern call:
Faith, courage, service true With honor over, honor over all.

Composed by Charles A. Zimmerman.
Lyrics by Alfred Hart Miles.
