"My Kaydet Girl"
by LT Tirso G Fajardo, USMA Class '34

On her lips was a smile my kaydet girl.
On her eyes are the stars above.

For her face is a poem of beauty.
Can you blame me, sweet, for falling in love?

Won't you come, dear, to me?
I'll shower you with a kiss on each raven curl.

Won't you come into my arms, dance to our song?
For I love you my kaydet girl

The Ballad Of The Green Beret
By Staff Sgt. Barry Sadler US Army

Fighting soldiers from the sky,
Fearless men who jump and die,
Men who mean just what they say
The brave men of the Green Beret.

Silver wings upon their chests,
These are men, America's best,
One hundred men we'll test today,
But only three win the Green Beret.

Trained to live off nature's land,
Trained in combat, hand to hand,
Men who fight by night and day,
Courage take from the Green Beret.

Silver wings upon their chests,
These are men, America's best,
Men who mean just what they say,
The brave men of the Green Beret.

Back at home a young wife waits,
Her Green Beret has met his fate,
He has died for those oppressed,
Leaving her this last request:

Put silver wings on my son's chest,
Make him one of America's best,
He'll be a man they'll test one day,
Have him win the Green Beret.

All The Way!

The Scout Ranger Song

We strike
We who are happy and free
Birds of same feather
We flutter together
Scout Rangers of fortune are we

We sing
Greeting the night with a song
Laughing out danger
We fight like a panther
And conquer the hardships always

Shadows to hide us
And bright stars to guide us
The night we roam
Wherever we choose to roam

We ride (Hep!), March (Hep!), Creep (Hep!), Crawl (Hep!)
Silently in the jungle
Scout Rangers of fortune are we
Seeking and fighting
Laughing and loving
Scout Rangers of fortune are we!

We Strike.

PMA, OUR ALMA MATER FAREWELL

The time has come for us to leave
Thy lofty portals, PMA!
With heavy hearts and solemness
We now must shed the gray
But with us we shall take the spirit
That has shown us Thy fine ways,
To Thee we'll always be endeared
Beloved PMA.

And when the call of duty comes
For us to prove your right and strong
We'll never fail Thee, Alma Mater,
We shall ever carry on
With bold imprints in history
Of sons you've left upon the throne
Of sacrifice and service
To our precious native land.

Oh, now we bid farewell to Thee,
The peerless guardian of our Fate!
We now must join the gallant band
That gave Thee prestige rare
We stand before a rugged trail
To clear up, pave and later mend.
With strength derived from Thee, we'll be
Assured and confident.

Courageously we'll stand for right
Whatever costly price we pay
With loyalty our country's freedom
We'll forever perpetuate,
Integrity will dwell with us
We'll live by it down to the grave;
That thy famed name Academy
Well stay forever great.

PMA, O HAIL TO THEE

Oh, proud and bold you stand!
Bright beacon of the land
Let loyal sons proclaim
Thy glorious name

Wherever we may be
O'er land or deep blue sea,
We'll raise a song to Thee,
Academy, Oh, Hail to Thee!

At every end of day
We hope and fervent pray
The honor you instill
Doth guide our will!

May Thy sons ever be
Men of INTEGRITY
COURAGE and LOYALTY,
PMA, Oh, Hail to Thee!

When bells for us are rung
And our last "taps" is sung
Let generations see
Our country free

Oh, lead to righteous way
Those solid ranks of gray
Thy virtues to display
Academy, Oh, Hail to Thee!
