old mister absent minded that's, me.
just as forgetful as i can be.
i've got the strangest sort of a mind.
i'm always leaving something behind.
i left my heart at the stage door canteen.
i left it there with a girl named eileen.
i kept her serving doughnuts ‘til all she had were gone.
i sat there dunking doughnuts ‘til she caught on.
i must go back to the army routine.
and ev'ry doughboy knows what that will mean.
a soldier boy with out a heart
has two strikes on him from the start
and my heart's at the stage door canteen.
