"Wilson" himself must have ordered our food

Beans, slum, tomatoes + rice quite a lot

The coffee was black to suit any mood

But well guaranteed to give you the "trot."

 Wavy line drawn underneath. 


Wasps in the jam for amusement were put

For many the hours that we had to spare

In side nut shells we'd find wasps for the missing

Even when "Dating" the wasps would be there

Wavy line drawn underneath. 


We'd beautiful bath-rooms all painted white

Wash-bowls of silver, so large, clean + bright

Shower baths so private that no one could  see 

And always water as hot as could be.

Wavy line drawn underneath. 


The M.D. and C.C. did quite a lot

In cheering we Waac's + making us smile

For every night round the camp they would  trot 

Kissing each other every little while

Wavy line drawn underneath. 


The Cinima too, was crowded each nighmissing  night 

Fancy dress parades we had by moon lighmissing  light 

We'd Fox-trots + one steps all the night long

An "An Aching Heart" was our favourite song

(another little bit wont do you any harm so P.T.O).
