"Something for the boys [From Something for the Boys]" as written by and Cole Porter....
I'm always doing something,
Something for the boys
I'm always doing something
For the lads if it adds to their joy
So don't tell me it's a wrong thing
If I'm out with 'em nightly till three
'Cos I'm always doing something for the boys
Or they're doing something for me.

Back in the days of gifty giving
When all God's daddies had greens
I was oh so busy living
Beyond several gentlemen's means
I didn't care much where I fluttered
Long as my bank roll was buttered
But now my life's completely cluttered
With soldiers, sailors,
Not to speak of those big marines

'Cos I'm always doing something,
Something for the boys
I'm always doing something
For the lads if it adds to their joy
So don't tell me its a wrong thing
If I flop on some corporal's knee
'Cos I'm always doing something for the boys
Or they're doing something for me.
