I'm very curious about marching songs. And I don't mean the patriotic or propaganda ones - I mean the ones made up by the lower ranks.
Now, let's hear those songs or read their lyrics.
Modern or ancient, English or other language, politically correct or rude, it don't matter!

If you want, I'll post links to modern military marches of Croatian armed forces.
I'm saying that because you want lower rank marches and these are patriotic ones, played whenever there is some big military manifestation here in Croatia.
But nevertheless, some of them are really beautifull... ;)

I remember one Sergeant, a British/US transplant, managing to create a cadence version of “Bang, Bang Lulu” that about got the whole company in trouble on its way to chow one evening. Apparently some passing officer was a little offended. Oh that was a fun night.
I won’t post the lyrics…
Look it up, that old bar song has got to be out on the web somewhere.

Not sure who wrote it, but I like this Prussian march from the 18th century: http://www.mcvfifesanddrums.org/music/German_69.mp3 I'm also a fan of the York Fusiliers march.

For military marches, my personal favorites would have to be the German and Soviet marches. I'm partial to Sviashchenaia Voina (Holy War)
For cadences, my favorite from my time in follows:
Pick up your 'chutes and follow me
I'm the airborne infantry
Pick up your ropes and follow me
I'm the air assault infantry
Pick up your rucks and follow me
I'm the light infantry
Big red one
Jump on your tracks and follow me
I'm the mechanized infantry
Pick up your weapon and follow me
I'm the ranger infantry
Patch on my shoulder
Pick up your snowshoes, follow me
Arctic Light Infantry
Patch on my shoulder
Pick up your books and follow me
I'm the wanna-be infantry

Up jumped the Monkey at the Coconut Grove
He was a bad mother-****er you could tell by his clothes
He wore a two-piece ditty with a three-****ged stitch
He was an ass-kickin' mother-****in' son-of-a-bitch
Well he lined a hundred women up against the wall
Had a two-dollar bet he could **** them all
He ****ed 98 'til his balls turned blue
Then he backed off, jacked off, and ****ed the other two
my SFC kicked my ass for calling this cadence during a ROTC run. ha!
