Coast Guard Heroes Coast Guard Heroes Lifesavers Lifesavers I hear the Dolphin coming I hear the Dolphin coming It’s hovering overhead It’s hovering overhead They come to get the wounded They come to get the wounded They’ve come to get the dead They’ve come to get the dead Coast Guard Heroes Coast Guard Heroes Lifesavers Lifesavers My PFD is frozen My PFD is frozen My hands and feet are numb My hands and feet are numb Distress was called an hour ago Distress was called an hour ago The Coast Guard’s on the run The Coast Guard’s on the run Coast Guard Heroes Coast Guard Heroes Lifesavers Lifesavers There’s men in the water There’s men in the water Circle the cutter around Circle the cutter around We have to save their life We have to save their life We can’t let em drown We can’t let em drown Coast Guard Heroes Coast Guard Heroes Lifesavers Lifesavers The swimmers in the water The swimmers in the water The baskets coming down The baskets coming down The rotor’s roaring overhead The rotor’s roaring overhead It’s such a welcome sound It’s such a welcome sound Coast Guard Heroes Coast Guard Heroes Lifesavers Lifesavers A fishing boat went out to sea A fishing boat went out to sea A storm struck from above A storm struck from above The mast came crashing to the deck The mast came crashing to the deck Mayday needs to sound Mayday needs to sound Coast Guard Heroes Coast Guard Heroes Lifesavers Lifesavers The surfboat crashes through the waves The surfboat crashes through the waves Lightning strikes and thunder roars Lightning strikes and thunder roars The crew still searches day and night The crew still searches day and night For sailors lost since yestermorn. For sailors lost since yestermorn. Coast Guard Heroes Coast Guard Heroes Lifesavers Lifesavers Marines were gathered on the shore Marines were gathered on the shore Shots firing all around Shots firing all around The Higgins boat sailed to the shore The Higgins boat sailed to the shore To pull them from the ground To pull them from the ground Coast Guard Heroes Coast Guard Heroes Lifesavers Lifesavers Five hundred forty lives were saved Five hundred forty lives were saved In the last years of his life In the last years of his life Two hurricanes and countless storms Two hurricanes and countless storms He kept saving through the strife. He kept saving through the strife. Coast Guard Heroes Coast Guard Heroes Lifesavers Lifesavers Douglas Munro is in his grave Douglas Munro is in his grave Tears in his mother’s eyes Tears in his mother’s eyes Blood filled the Higgins boat Blood filled the Higgins boat Why did he have to die? Why did he have to die? Coast Guard Heroes Coast Guard Heroes Lifesavers Lifesavers Medal of Honor around his neck Medal of Honor around his neck Our hearts are filled with pride Our hearts are filled with pride Cause Coastie’s die for freedom Cause Coastie’s die for freedom And freedom isn’t free And freedom isn’t free Coast Guard Heroes Coast Guard Heroes Lifesavers Lifesavers

    Wow. Have some freaking respect guys. This isn't lame. Sure the quality may be lacking but that doesn't mean that it's lame. That is incredibly rude and disrespectful.
