I know they're gonna write to me
When they get across the sea
Every Chance when that Washington lands in France.

Oh momma, don't you weep amd moan,
Uncle Sam's got your man and gone,
Now he's doing that Linburgh across the sea.

Oh momma, how can it be?
You went way across the sea
Just to keep from doing that Lindy-Bird with me.

When I had my uniform on,
I could Lindy all night long.
Then I'll do that Lindy-Bird with you.

I asked for a glass of Key-Ola (=Cola)
She said, "Can I play the Blues on your Victrola,
Then I'll do that Lindy-Bird with you."

I asked her for a piece of banana.
She said, "Can I play the Blues on your piano,
Then I'll do that Lindy-Bird with you.
