I have been trying to remember the word to the Woman Leatherneck song that we sang going into Family Day before Graduation. I know the individual verses were about out DI's but the chorus was the same. Can anybody help me out.

That's okay Ed. Doubt many male Marines would know the Lady Leatherneck song.

The part above is the part that remains the same throughout. There's an echo part that some of the women do as well as each platoon customize the song to their own platoon and DI's. And I've since learned not all of the WM's learn{ed} the Lady Leatherneck song. It sure was inspiring to hear when in 1st and 2nd phase. Even more motivating when finally in 3rd and could begin making the verses for ourselves and later in 3rd phase to begin to practice and sing it.

Found this one on the web, I think that you had to replace the names of the Drill Instructors to match those of your recruit platoon...

That's just a version of the song. Though not just the DI names are replaced. Each platoon will customize their song not only with their DI's names, but what their DI's would say, how they were motiviating and experiences with them. So the beginning part was the only "standard" part. The part I posted up there is what I remember as standard. The rest was customized and not just names.

Thanks to all that posted. Now all I gotta do is find someone from my platoon that might remember our verses.

Try this for locating. I have found Marines I served with from 1990. The only problem with locating women is they may get married (God only knows why :) and change names.
