Whippoorwill Lyr Req: The Gooney Bird (2) LYRICS? The Gooney Bird 04 Aug 97

Years ago, I heard a song called "Ode to the Gooney Bird," or something like that, referring to the unkillable C-47, DC-3, or whatever you want to call her. The chorus went:

They patched her up with paper clips,
With chewing gum and strings;
And still she flies, she never dies,
Methusalah with wings.

I can't find it on the database. Anybody know the verses?
