“Ding Ding, Ding Ding, Ding Ding”
Another day at sea begins, the sea its call I hear.
Another day has just begun, No land, nor pier, is near.
I hurry up to dress myself, to ready for the day,
My fellow shipmates soon will come, their ills to take away.
I am a Navy Corpsman, tried, tested, and always true.
My foremost goal upon the ship, is heal what’s wrong with you.
It may not be a horrid curse, or even cause you pain.
It may be just the blues, News from home ain’t came.
A gentle word of friendship, may be all it takes,
or maybe you are deathly ill, We do whatever it takes.
We are there to ease your pain, and make life easier to bear.
Remember us, the ones called “DOC”, for we’re always there
We are standing by to help, Not only just at sea.
It takes a special breed, to give them self complete, to undertake a
hard, sad task, not intended for the meek.
Tip your white-hat, and shake their hand, the next time they walk through,
tell your “Doc” how much they mean to the sailors on your crew.
We don’t ask for medals, glory is not our goal
To heal the sick and injured souls, that is our steadfast goal.
