ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS
BRANCH SONG "ESSAYONS"


Essayons, sound out the battle cry

Essayons, we'll win or we'll die

Essayons, there's nothing we won't try

We're the U.S.

Army Corps of Engineers

Pin the castle on my collar

I've done my training for the team

You can call me an engineer soldier

The warrior spirit has been my dream

We are builders, we are fighters

We are destroyers just as well

There've been doubters who met with the sappers

1 - We know our sappers will never fail

OR

2 - And then we blew them all straight to hell

Our brothers fighting on the battlefield

Look to us to point the way

We get there first and then we take the risks

To build the roads and the air strips

And bridge the mighty river streams

We don't care who gets the glory

We're sure of one thing, this we know

Somewhere out there an engineer soldier

Designed the plan for the whole darn show

Essayons whether in war or peace

We will bear our red and our white

Essayons we serve America

And the U.S.




Evidence which could establish the actual facts concerning the designing and adoption of the Essayons Button probably burned at West Point in 1838, when the building containing the library and earliest official Corps of Military Academy records caught fire.
