His cousin had sent him a sweater 
And his sister wrote a letter
But he wanted something much better
This boy who was sailing away
For his buddies were with their sweethearts
All around him with their sweethearts
Now he'd never had any sweethearts
And over and over he'd say

In my arms, in my arms
Ain't I never gonna have a girl in my arms
In my arms, in my arms
Ain't I never gonna get a bundle of charms
Comes the dawn, I'll be gone
I just gotta have a honey holdin' me tight
You can keep your knittin' and purlin'
If I'm gonna go to Berlin
Gimme a girl in my arms tonight

His grandma had sent him some candy
And as he chewed on the candy 
He said my morale is just dandy
And still there's a tear in my eye
For his buddies were there with their sweethearts
Kissing bye-bye with their sweethearts
Now he'd never had any sweethearts
And over and over he'd cry

In my arms, in my arms
Ain't I never gonna have a girl in my arms
In my arms, in my arms
Ain't I never gonna get a bundle of charms
Comes the dawn, I'll be gone
And I thank you for the many letters you'll write
As for something nice and cute and female
I'll never get it in the V-mail
Gimme a girl in my arms tonight

In my arms, in my arms
Ain't I never gonna have a girl in my arms
In my arms, in my arms
Ain't I never gonna get a bundle of charms
Comes the dawn, I'll be gone
I'll be headin' for the very thick of the fight
You can wine and dine and cigarette me
But if you really wanna get me
Gimme a girl in my arms tonight

In my arms, in my arms
Ain't I never gonna have a girl in my arms
In my arms, in my arms
Ain't I never gonna get a bundle of charms
Comes the dawn, I'll be gone
Now does anyone wanna please treat me right
You can keep your shavin' cream and lotion
If I'm a-gonna cross the ocean
Give me a girl in my arms tonight
