The full lyrics to the song (Most recorded versions, though, use only a part of the lyrics):

While other girls attend their fav’rite cocktail bar
Sipping Martinis, munching caviar
There’s a girl who’s really putting them to shame
Rosie is her name

All the day long whether rain or shine
She’s a part of the assembly line
She’s making history, working for victory
Rosie the Riveter

Keeps a sharp lookout for sabotage
Sitting up there on the fuselage
That little frail can do more than a male will do
Rosie the Riveter

Rosie’s got a boyfriend, Charlie
Charlie, he’s a Marine
Rosie is protecting Charlie
Working overtime on the riveting machine

When they gave her a production “E”
She was as proud as a girl could be
There’s something true about red, white, and blue about
Rosie the Riveter

Everyone stops to admire the scene
Rosie at work on the B-Nineteen
She’s never twittery, nervous or jittery
Rosie the Riveter

What if she’s smeared full of oil and grease
Doing her bit for the old Lendlease
She keeps the gang around, they love to hang around
Rosie the Riveter

Rosie buys a lot of war bonds
That girl really has sense
Wishes she could purchase more bonds
Putting all her cash into national defense

Senator Jones who is “in the know”
Shouted these words on the radio
Berlin will hear about, Moscow will cheer about
Rosie the Riveter!
