"I Left My Heart at the Stage Door Canteen [From This Is the Army]" as written by and Irving Berlin....
I left my heart at the stage door canteen

This cute story of Army life romance by Don Cornell

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 every dough boy
Knows what that will mean

A soldier boy without a heart
Has two strikes on him from the start
And my heart's at the stage door canteen
