We got sunlight on the sand,
We got moonlight on the the sea
We got mangoes and bananas
You can pick right off a tree
We got volleyball and ping pong
And a lot of dandy games!
What ain’t we got?
We ain’t got dames!
We get packages from home,
We get movies, we get shows
We get speeches from our skipper
And advice from Tokyo Rose
We get letters doused with perfume,
We get dizzy from the smell!
What don’t we get?
You know darn well!
We got nothin’ to put on a clean white suit for
We got nothin’ to look masculine and cute for!
There is nothin’ like a dame!
Nothin’ in the world!
There is nothin’ you can name
That is anything like a dame!
We feel lonely and we long
For the fair and gentle sex,
We would like to feel the feeling
Of some arms around our necks.
We feel hungry as the wolf felt
When he met Red Riding Hood!
What don’t we feel?
We don’t feel good!
Lots of things in life are beautiful - - - - - but brother,
There is one particular thing that is Nothin’ whatsoever in any way,
shape or form - - - - - like any other.
