WE SAW THE SEA Follow The Fleet, 1936 Movie (Irving Berlin) Fred Astaire We joined the Navy to see the world And what did we see? We saw the sea We saw the Pacific and the Atlantic But the Atlantic isn't romantic And the Pacific isn't what it's cracked up to be We joined the Navy to do or die But we didn't do and we didn't die We were much too busy looking at the ocean and the sky And what did we see? We saw the sea We saw the Atlantic and the Pacific But the Pacific isn't terrific And the Atlantic isn't what it's cracked up to be They tell us that the Admiral Is as nice as he can be But we never see the Admiral Because the Admiral has never been to sea We joined the Navy to see the girls And what did we see? We saw the sea Instead of a girl or two in a taxi We were compelled to look at the Black Sea Seeing the Black Sea isn't what it's cracked up to be Sailing, sailing home again To see the girls upon the village green Then across the foam again To see the other seas we haven't seen We owe the Navy an awful lot For they taught us how to do the Sailor's Hornpipe And they showed us how to tie a sailor's knot But more than that, they showed us the sea We never get seasick sailing the ocean We don't object to feeling the motion We're never seasick but we are awful sick of sea
