Morgan City is a Coast Guard City 
(Tune: Alan Jacksonís "Little Bitty")

The Captain I relieved who works in D8
Last year said to me, 
"This place is really great!
Come on down, see that itís true."

Now he and I share the same view

CHORUS

People up north, wasting their pity
Feeliní bad Iím in Morgan City
To change their view, 
Iíve written this ditty
About my life in 
"A Coast Guard City."

Got a great mayor, hairís gray like mine
Runs a great town where life is fine
Foundation friend, named "Mr. Al"
The local Coast Guardís bestest best pal 

CHORUS

People up north, wasting their pity
Feeliní bad Iím in Morgan City
To change their view, 
Iíve written this ditty
About my life in 
"A Coast Guard City."

Labor Day weekend, who could guess?
We celebrate the Shrimp and Petrofest
Annually crown a new king and queen
With a maritime toast and more stuff thatís keen 

CHORUS

People up north, wasting their pity
Feeliní bad Iím in Morgan City
To change their view, 
Iíve written this ditty
About my life in 
"A Coast Guard City."

Festival boss, name is "Miss Rose"
Never know next what sheíll propose
PELICAN, AXE, Honor Guard, too
Planning with her keeps us on our toes 

CHORUS

To change their view, 
Iíve written this ditty
About my life in 
"A Coast Guard City."

Walkiní near the park, what do I see?
In a store front window, Iím stuffed in effigy
"Mr. Brent" has dressed a dummy to be
A facsimile of Steve Garrity

At the Fest rides senior Coasties in style
Police cars drive in a conga line
Deliver VIPís to places on time

Invite to their homes Coast Guard friends
So does Ms. Brownell, her bar with a gator
Opens the eyes of them out-of-staters

No more Star or LOOP, his life is looking up

Here you pass a good time with your Coast Guard family
Faces change, but life stays the same
Gotta make the most of our "Coast Guard City" name
