I Left My Heart At the Stage Door Canteen

This song is by Jo Stafford.

Old Mister Absent-Minded, that's me
Just as forgetful as I can be
I've got the strangest sort of 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 kept her serving doughnuts, 'til 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 stagedoor canteen

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 kept her serving doughnuts, 'til she caught on
