Comin` In On a Wing and a Prayer

1943 – Jimmy McHugh / Harold Adamson

One of our planes was missing, two hours overdue

Yes, one of our planes was missing with all its gallant crew

The radio sets were hummin’, they wait for their word

Then a voice broke through that hummin’

And this is what they heard

Comin’ in on a wing and a prayer

Comin’ in on a wing and a prayer

Though there’s one motor gone

We can still carry on

Comin’ in on a wing and a prayer

What a show (What a show)

What a fight (What a fight)

Yes, we really hit our target for tonight (Tonight)

How we’ll sing as we limp through the air

Look below, there’s a field over there

With our full crew aboard

And our trust in the Lord

Comin’ in on a wing and a prayer
