Subject: Lyr Req: Thingummybob
I've been searching for a couple of years now for the lyrics to this song, which I think came out of World War II - it might even have been World War I. I'm pretty certain it was recorded by Cosmotheka but although I've found references to it on Google, I haven't actually found the lyrics. I can't find any references to it anywhere on Mudcat either. The last line goes something like

"...and it's the girl who makes the thing that holds the oil that oils the string that works the thingummybob that's going to win the war"

Has anyone got any ideas?

BTW I'm new to Mudcat so this is all a bit scary but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it!
