Hooray!
What?
One, two, three, four
One, two, three, four
One, two, three, four
One, two, three, four

It's up to you not to heed the call up
And you must not act the way you were brought up
Who knows the reasons why you have grown up?
Who knows the plans or why they were drawn up?

It's up to you not to heed the call up
I don't wanna die
It's up to you not to hear the call up
I don't wanna kill

For he who will die
Is he who will kill

Maybe I wanna see the wheatfields
Over Kiev and down to the sea

Oh, it's up to you not to heed the call up
I don't wanna die
It's up to you not to hear the call up
I don't wanna kill

All the young people down the ages
They gladly marched off to die
Proud city fathers used to watch them
Tears in their eyes

It's up to you not to heed the call up
I don't wanna die
It's up to you not to hear the call up
I don't wanna kill

For he who will die
Is he who will kill

There is a rose that I want to live for
Although, God knows, I may not have met her
There is a dance and I should be with her
There is a town - unlike any other

It's up to you not to hear the call up
You must not act the way you were brought up
Who give you work and why should you do it?
At fifty five minutes past eleven

Oh, there is a rose...

1-2-3-4, I love the Marine Corp!
1-2-3-4, I love the Marine Corp!
1-2-3-4, I love the Marine Corp!

Yeah

It's up to you not to heed the call up
It's up to you not to hear the call up
I don't wanna die
I don't wanna die

There is a rose that I want to live for
It's up to you not to heed the call up
