We’ll build’em and sail ’em

We’ll never fail’em

The Victory Fleet will be complete we know

On every ocean, we’ll be in motion

The Victory Fleet will soon defeat the foe.

We’ll have a bridge of ships beyond compare

We’ll soon be able to walk from here to over there

The world is cheering

The skies are clearing

With the Victory Fleet – Let’s go.

In the factories hear the hammers night and day

In the shipyards everone is on his way

On the ocean every seaman joins the fray

We heard the buglers blow

We answered our country’s call we’re ready one and all.
