The U.S. army song has been around for a long time, and the song lyrics have changed a bit with the times.

The Caisson Song lyrics I have on my free sheetmusic are the words I remember from when I was a girl; but notice that there are lots more verses in this rousing rendition of the army theme song below: 


I have had good luck using this song as a piano lead sheet, asking students to add simple left hand chords using root chords and inversions. (See examples of this down at the bottom of my page Lead Sheets.)

I'm betting some of your boy students would like it, too!
