Lyrics

Come on boys and join the fray
Strike Kaiser Bill without delay
Do your duty and stand tall
Home by Christmas, heroes all
But victory was not routine
Circumstances unforeseen
Neither side thought to relent
Christmas came and Christmas went
Once again the powers that be simplify complexity
Jingoistic theory underrates the enemy
Turns out they also think they're right
And that they're prepared to die
And think God is on their side
What a cost to prove who's right
Mothers, fathers, teach your children to ignore
Madmen calling them to war

Come on boys let's slay the beast raging in the middle East
Do your duty and stand tall
Home by Christmas, heroes all
But victory was not routine
Circumstances unforeseen
Neither side thought to relent
Christmas came and Christmas went
Once again the powers that be simplify complexity
Jingoistic theory underrates the enemy
Turns out they also think they're right
And that they're prepared to die
And think God is on their side
What a cost to prove who's right
Mothers, fathers, teach your children to ignore
Madmen calling them to war
