​I Left My Heart at the Stage Door Canteen

This song is by Charlie Spivak.

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 â??till all she had were gone.
I sat there dunking doughnuts â??till she caught on.

I must go back to the Army routine.
And every doughboy 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.
