Daddy Was A Navy Man (Denney Kevin)

I don't know why he liked the Water He'd never seen the ocean before But he was young and thirsty for Adventure And our country was at war The poster in the window Promised a chance to see the World And he figured that he had a Score to settle For the boys that died at pearl He's proud and so am I That he went and did his part And I love to hear the stories That he tells Of typhoons, tattoos, geisha girls And battles he's been in Okinawa, Iwo Jima, and Saipan And for the longest time He wouldn't drive a car made in Japan Daddy was a navy man Says it was just his duty That's why he volunteered And when you're seventeen years Old You're just too dumb to be scared And there's a friend he talks About He says he'll see again someday Cause you know old sailors Never die They just sail away My daddy was a navy man
