You can see and hear the first version at YouTube. I found the second version on Spotify.

SHE BROKE MY HEART IN THREE PLACES
(Al Hoffman, Milton Drake, & Jerry Livingston, ©1942)

I. As performed by the Hoosier Hot Shots in the film "Swing in the Saddle" 1944.

She broke my heart in three places:
Seattle, Chicago, and New York.
She led me on those wild-goose chases,
But, brother, I trailed her like a hawk.
It started in the moonlight; we drifted on a lake.
Down on my knees, I whispered: "Please give my heart a break!"
So she broke my heart in three places:
Seattle, Chicago, and New York.

She broke my heart in four places:
Toledo, Albuquerque, Minneapolis, and St. Paul. (That's nothing!)
She broke my heart in five places: (Yeah?)
Miami, Austin, Boston, Chattanooga, and Montreal.
It started in Savannah; we landed in Salt Lake.
In Kokomo, I whispered: "Oh, give my heart a break!"
Well, sir, she broke my heart in six places:
Helena, Pasadena, Frisco, Kisco(?), Macon, and Mohawk—
Besides Seattle, Chicago, and New York.

HE BROKE MY HEART IN THREE PLACES

II. As recorded by Spike Jones & his City Slickers (vocal: The Nilsson Twins) – 1943.

I was like a blushing rose that trembled at his touch.
We were trading sigh for sigh.
Later on, I realized I loved him much too much.
Now you'll see what finally transpired:

He broke my heart in three places:
Seattle, Chicago, and New York.
He led me on those wild-goose chases,
But, brother, I trailed him like a hawk.
It started in the moonlight; we drifted on a lake.
He'd start to go; I whispered: "Oh, give my heart a break!"
So he broke my heart in three places:
Seattle, Chicago, and New York.

He broke my heart in four places:
Toledo, Baltimore, Minneapolis, and St. Paul.
He broke my heart in five places:
Miami, ..., Chattanooga, and Montreal.
It started in Savannah; we landed in Salt Lake.
In Kokomo, I whispered: "Oh, give my heart a break!"
So he broke my heart in--
