He's 1-A in the Army and He's A-1 in My Heart

Performed by Betty Bonney & Les Brown

 

Recorded October 15, 1941

Written by Redd Evans

 

From coast to coast in this great nation

Each man has got a classification.

I've got a guy who's really something

This man of mine, he ain't missin' nothin'.

No wonder I'm happy to say:

Chorus

He's 1-A in the army and he's A-1 in my heart,

He's gone to help the country that helped him to get a start.

I love him so because I know he wants to do his part,

For he's 1-A in the army and he's A-1 in my heart.

And just in case you're quizzical,

I'm gonna tell you now,

He passed the toughest physical--

He passed it, folks, and how!

For I know why he rates so high on Uncle Sammy's chart,

'Cause he's 1-A in the army and he's A-1 in my heart.

From coast to coast in this great nation,

Each man has got a classification.

Now I've got a guy who never liked to fight,

But for Uncle Sam he'll fight all right.

Won't hear songs like that coming out of the entertainment community now a days! Maybe Miley Ray Cyrus can do a cover of this in her underwear. Nah, on second thought, I'll stick with the Liberty Belles.
