He said "Hey King George, we don't want your tea."
"Now get out of here and don't tread on me."

He fought for the Union at New Orleans.
He heard Admiral Farragut when he said,
"Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!"
When Master Chief Goebel was 104
He went to fight in the First World War.
He served on a battleship, sank a U-boat.
Then he retired as a grumpy old goat.
When Master Chief Goebel was 105
They called him back up cause he was still alive.
He fought at Midway and he served with JFK
Then he hopped aboard the Enola Gay.

He served on carrier, got into a fix.
A misfired rocket hit a parked plane
So he grabbed a fire hose and put out the flames.
When Master Chief Goebel was 107
He finally died and went to heaven.
No that ain't right, that ain't true.
He went down below with You Know Who.
He said, "Hey there Devil, get ready for some
"Cause you've just met the oldest Master Chief!"
Well Satan laughed and pointed to the floor.
He said, "You'll wear brown shoes forevermore!"
