We got sunlight on the sand We got moonlight on the sea We got mangos and bananas You can pick right off the 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 (was a jap. radio station at ware time) We get letters doused with perfume We get dizzy from the smell What don't we get? You know darn well We got nothing to put on a clean white suit for, What we need is what there ain't no substitue for There is nothing like a dame, nothing in the world There is nothing you can name that is anything like a dame We feel restless we feel blue We feel lonely and in grief We feel every kind of feeling But the feeling of relief 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 nothing whatsoever in any shape or form like any other There is nothing like a dame, nothing in the world There is nothing you can name that is anything like a dame Nothing else is built the same, Nothing in the world Has the soft and wavy frame Like the silhouette of a dame There's absolutely nothing like the frame of a dame So suppose a dame ain't bright Or completly free from flaws Or as faithful as a bird dog Or as kind as santa clause It's a waste of time to worry Over things that they have not Be thankful for the things they've got There is nothing you can name That is anything like a dame There are no books like a dame And nothing looks like a dame There are no drinks like a dame And nothing thinks like a dame Nothing acts like a dame Or attracts like a dame There ain't a thing thats wrong with any man here That can't be cured by putting him near a girly, womanly, female, feminine dame (Contributed by Gerd Loedige - April 2005)
