Boy George: It's An Odd Boy Who Doesn't Like Sport #1

Danny Baker, New Musical Express, 22 September 1984

"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 grandstand/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!/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..."
– 'In The Navy', Village People 1979.
