"The Earl Of Mansfield’s March" ~ can be played in G, A & D Major

C: J. McEwan ~ ?

I’m fond of it down low but it seems to be mostly played in D, swung or not… I’ve given two flavours for it here and had a bit of fun with it the first time through in G.

"In The Navy" ~ The Village People 😎

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 or skindive,
study oceanography?
Sign up for the big band or sit in the grand stand
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, 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.

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
but don’t you worry ‘bout the thing
for I’m sure there will be always the good Navy
protecting the land and sea.

In the Navy…

They want you! They want you! They want you as a new recruit!
They want you! They want you! They want you as a new recruit!
..But..but..but I’m afraid of water!
..hey..hey..look, men…
I get seasick even watching it on the TV!
They want You! - Oh my goodness!
They want you! - What am I gonna do in a submarine?
They want you! They want you!
In the Navy.

In the Navy… (fade out)

As said previously, I feel that 4/4 (or 2/4) suits these marches much better than the density (blackiness) of transcribing them in 2/4, but that was the ‘old’ way. You could also change the meter, K:, to any of these in the ABCs, to 4/4 or 2/4, and set the value length, L:, as 1/4, 1/8 or 1/16… For this transcription in A, as one example, you could change it so:

M: 4/4
L: 1/4
R: march
K: A Major

~ or ~

M: 2/2
L: 1/4
R: march
K: A Major

The 4/4 transcriptions in G & D could also be as easily changed to 2/4 ~

M: 2/4
L: 1/16
R: march
K: ~
