[From the song "Who's Complaining?" which dealt with food rationing during World War Two]
"Because of Axis trickery, my coffee now is chicory, and I can rarely purloin a sirloin... No complaining, through the campaigning. Who cares if the carrots are few? I'll feed myself on artichokes, until that Nazi party chokes, so long as they don't ration, my passion, for you!"

Because of Axis' trickery
My coffee now is chicory
And I can rarely purloin
A sirloin
No complaining
Through the campaigning
Who cares if carrots are few
I'll feed myself on artichokes
Until that Nazi Party chokes
So long as they don't ration
My passion For you
You know if things go on
At the rate they're going
And goods flow out
At the rate they're flowing
The time isn't very far away
When this will be my typical day
At breakfast time just after I get up
If there's little on the breakfast setup
For the little I'm served
I'm well repaid
