"Hedy Lamarr is a beautiful gal, and Madaleine Carroll is too.
But you'll find if you query, a different theory, among any bomber crew.
For the loveliest thing of which one could sing this side of the heavenly gates,
is no blonde or brunette of the Hollywood set, but a escort of P-38s.

We sweat out our track through the fighters and flack, we're willing to split up the glory.
Well theywould'nt reject us so heaven protect us and until all this shooting abates,
give us thecourage to fight 'em and one other small item. A escort of P-38s."
