Where can you find pleasure
Search the world for treasure
Learn science technology
Where can you begin to make your dreams all come true
On the land or on the sea
Where can you learn to fly
Play in sports and skin dive
Study oceanography
Sign of for the big band
Or sit in the grandstand
When your team and others meet


In the navy
Yes, you can sail the seven seas
In the navy
Yes, you can put your mind at ease
In the navy
Come on now, people, make a stand
In the navy, in the navy
Can't you see we need a hand
In the navy
Come on, protect the motherland
In the navy
Come on and join your fellow man
In the navy
Come on people, and make a stand
In the navy, in the navy, in the navy (in the navy)


They want you, they want you
They want you as a new recruit


If you like adventure
Don't you wait to enter
The recruiting office fast
Don't you hesitate
There is no need to wait
They're signing up new seamen fast
Maybe you are too young
To join up today
Bout don't you worry 'bout a thing
For I'm sure there will be
Always a good navy
Protecting the land and sea


In the navy
Yes, you can sail the seven seas
In the navy
Yes, you can put your mind at ease
In the navy
Come on now, people, make a stand
In the navy, in the navy
Can't you see we need a hand
In the navy
Come on, protect the motherland
In the navy
Come on and join your fellow man
In the navy
Come on people, and make a stand
In the navy, in the navy, in the navy (in the navy)


They want you, they want you
They want you as a new recruit


Who me?


They want you, they want you
They want you as a new recruit


But, but but I'm afraid of water.
Hey, hey look
Man, I get seasick even watchin' it on TV!


They want you, they want you in the navy


Oh my goodness.
What am I gonna do in a submarine?


They want you, they want you in the navy

    To unregistered (march 20th 2012) - copied from wikipedia:.
    "after the enormous commercial success of their 1978 hit "y. M. C. A. " which unexpectedly became the unofficial hymn and powerful advertising tool for the ymca, the united states navy contacted group manager henri belolo for production of a similar song about the united states navy, considering using the song in a recruiting advertising campaign on television and radio. Henri belolo gave the rights for free on the condition that the navy help them shoot the music video. Less than a month later, village people arrived at the san diego naval base. The navy provided them with a warship (uss reasoner (ff-1063)), several aircraft, and the crew of the ship (with the stipulation that the crew wouldn't dance). The navy later canceled the campaign after protests erupted over using taxpayer money for a music video of a controversial group. "
