EARL OXFORD, 30th July 1942: Old Mister Absent-Minded, that's me Just as forgetful as I can be I've got the strangest sort of a mind I'm always leaving something behind..... I left my heart at the Stage Door Canteen I left it there with a girl named Eileen I kept her serving doughnuts till all she had were gone I sat there dunking doughnuts till she caught on I must go back to the Army routine And every doughboy knows what that will mean A soldier boy without a heart Has two strikes on him from the start And my heart's at the Stage Door Canteen (I left my heart at the Stage Door Canteen) I left my heart (I left it there with a girl named Eileen) With a girl named Eileen I kept her serving doughnuts till all she had were gone I sat there dunking doughnuts till she caught on I must go back to the Army routine (The old Army Routine) And every doughboy knows what that will mean (We know what that means) A soldier boy without a heart Has two strikes on him from the start And my heart's at the Stage Door Canteen My heart's at the Stage Door Canteen (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2004)
