Peggy Jones had her picture took
It got in "Life" and it got in "Look"
Then the cameras began to click
And that my friend really did the trick

Then her fortunes began to climb
She appeared on "The March of Time"
All the boys in the Army camps
Wanted her picture for their postage stamp

She is the 'sweetheart' of
Plenty of soldiers,
Plenty of Sailors,
Thousands of Marines

She's the girl they pin-up in the barracks
She's the girl they pin-up on the wall
In a plane or on a train
She's a prince she's a pal
She was there when they landed
Down at Guadalcanal

She's the chick they all pick in the service
And they take her all over the world
We'll take up findin' a Queen
In a dime magazine
She's Peggy the Pin-Up Girl!

Peggy pinned-up from the toes up
Makes a fella turn his nose up
When he sees Lamoure or Grable on the screen
Even a voice that's so disturbin'
Like Judy Garland or Miss Durbin
Can't compare to my pin-up queen
(They can't compare to my pin-up queen)

So Ginger Rogers started howlin'
And Miss Powell threw the towel in
Peggy's dancin' caused a heat wave up in Nome
She has Betty Hutton's vigor
Lanna Turner's classy figure
And the chassis that made Lassie come home
On the double!
(and the chassis that made Lassie come home)

She rates high with each guy in the Air Corps
She rates high with each guy on the ground
Oh this sweet little chick is the pick of the crew
And she just suits the taste of every waist gunner too

They were there in the air over Berlin
And the voice sounded clear as a pearl
"Pilot to bombardier, come on boys lets drop one here"
For Peggy, the Pin-Up Girl!
