The U.S.S. Princeton flattop
Plowed the grey Korean waters,
Lighter by one Golden Dragon soul.
Seaman AM-3 Tubby Watson,
Sailed away from
Returned home in a casket
On a somber funeral train.
Never to ride upon Trigger again, or
Run with his dog Hitler in the wood.
Mourned and remembered by allThat knew of Tubby-his service, his good.
