    • A Wing And A Prayer

      Meaning:- In poor condition, but just managing to get the job done.

      This phrase originated from a 1943 song Coming in on a Wing and a Prayer by Harold Adamson and Jimmy McHugh.

      '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'

      The phrase soon caught on and in 1944 a movie aptly titled On a Wing and a Prayer was released by Hollywood.
