Coming in on a Wing and a Prayer

One of our planes was missing, Two hours overdue, One of our planes was missing, With all its gallant crew, The radio sets were humming, We waited for a word, Then a noise broke, Through the humming and this is what we 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 fight, boys, We really hit our target for tonight, How we sing as we limp through the air, Look below, there's our field over there, With just one motor gone, We can still carry on, Comin' in on a wing and a prayer.
