Subject:        Worker

I wonder if SHAKSPERians could help me with a reference. There is a
British song from the Second World War sung from the perspective of a
worker who makes the cog that works the engine that runs the tank that's
going to win the war. (I've probably got the parts wrong, but the point
is that the lowliest wartime labour is integral to the coming victory. I
think the worker might be female.)

I'd like to use this in relation to E. M. W. Tillyard's articulation of
the Chain of Being, so I need to know the name of the singer and the
song. Any information would be gratefully received and of course
properly acknowledged.
