Changed: 8c8
The Rockettes are a renowned dance organisation, linked to Radio City Music Hall, which has been around since the 1920s [source]. The line 'It's true, we flew to Paris, dear / aboard an Army jet' might situate the song in the World War Two period since the Rockettes are known to have starred in USO Tours during the war. On a technicality — since 'jet' is obviously dictated by the rhyme — there were, however, no army jets capable of carrying passengers in service during World War Two.
