The Lyrics

The donut as we know it started off in Europe under Germany in the 15th century. A cookbook printed from the Gutenberg press lists the Gefullte Krapfen as a jelly donut and by 1756 Prussian forces were eating donuts in the field thanks to a Berlin Baker who was unfit for Frontline duty but who fried donuts for Prussian troops who renamed them Berliners (think Kennedy speech). But American donuts were derived from WW1 Donut Lassie "doughnuts" for doughboys! Here's the story...
Donut Lassies Doughboy food
Was divine

1917 Salvation Army girls
Helen Purviance
Dough to roll at last

Wine bottle roller, she managed it
Knife to cut strips was found
Fashioned into Crullers
Fried and then passed around
(From 150 per day to thousands!)

Donut Lassies Doughboy food
Was divine
With long lines

Can used was crude
To cut holes as used
Coffee Dunkin' smooth
Doughboys called 'em doughnuts
Lassies got them there
Salvation Army deed
Forget the rats*, sweet treat filled their guts!

Led to Dunkin' Donuts, Krispy Kreme
Donut Lassies Doughboy food
Was divine
(Advanced the type through war fighting)
* rations

Note: Although Doughboy was a popular term for US Expeditionary Forces in WW1, the term originated in the Mexican-American War 1846-48. Since US troops traveled so far over dusty terrain they became covered in dust which was compared to flour. Others say Adobe which was shortened to Dobie which mutated into Doughboy!
