Take a bow, G.I.,
Take a bow, little guy.
The superman of tomorrow lies at the feet of you common men of this afternoon.
This is it, kid, this is The Day, all the way from Newburyport to Vladivostok,
You had what it took and you gave it, and each of you has a hunk of rainbow round your helmet.
“On A Note Of Triumph” broadcast May 8 and again May13, 1945 on CBS
