Oh, I know we're rough and rowdy,
And we come from God knows where:
some from trenches, some from billets,
some with cooties in our hair.
But you welcome us and greet us
with a cheery little smile
That puts the "L" in life again
and makes it seem worthwhile.

You walk with us and talk with us;
Believe the things we say,
(and that's a pretty tough, old
proposition, by the way);
And you treat us just like equals,
and you make us feel like men,
And the only unkind thing to do
Is to send us back again.

Dedicated to my nurse
