 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

We got sunlight on the sand
We got moonlight on the sea
We got mangos and bananas
You can pick right off the tree
We got volleyball and ping-pong
And a lot of dandy games
What ain't we got?
We ain't got dames

We get packages from home
We get movies we get shows
We get speeches from our skipper
And advice from Tokyo Rose
We get letters doused with perfume
We get dizzy from the smell
What don't we get?
You know darn well

We got nothing to put on a clean white suit for,
What we need is what there ain't no substitute for

There is nothing like a dame, nothing in the world
There is nothing you can name that is anything like a dame

We feel restless we feel blue
We feel lonely and in grief
We feel every kind of feeling
But the feeling of relief
We feel hungry as the wolf felt 
when he met red riding hood
What don't we feel? we don't feel good

Lots of things in life are beautiful but brother,
There is one particular thing that is nothing whatsoever in any shape or form
like any other

There is nothing like a dame, nothing in the world
There is nothing you can name that is anything like a dame

Nothing else is built the same,
Nothing in the world
Has the soft and wavy frame
Like the silhouette of a dame
There's absolutely nothing 
like the frame of a dame

So suppose a dame ain't bright
Or completely free from flaws
Or as faithful as a bird dog
Or as kind as santa clause
It's a waste of time to worry
Over things that they have not
Be thankful for the things they've got

There is nothing you can name
That is anything like a dame
There are no books like a dame
And nothing looks like a dame
There are no drinks like a dame
And nothing thinks like a dame
Nothing acts like a dame
Or attracts like a dame
There ain't a thing that's wrong with any man here
That can't be cured by putting him near
a girly, womanly, female, feminine dame
