The natives are restless tonight, sir
They need some kind of distraction
'Cause they'd kill if they only had something to kill for
They'd cheer if they only had something to cheer for
So it's off to war we go (I couldn't believe it)
Fight the good fight
It's working like a dream, sir
Waiting for the next victorious instalment
'Cause it's no surprise that young men are heroes
It's no surprise that young men are foolish
Exciting pictures on News at Ten (I couldn't believe it)
Fight the good fight
It's meant to warm our hearts
Oh God, what a farce, what a farce
And now it's the repeats
Show the pictures again and again
'Cause we'll kill if we only have something to kill for
We'll cheer if we only have something to cheer for
Oh yes the next war (I never believed it)
Enemies with horns and tails
It's meant to warm our hearts
Oh God, what a farce, what a farce
Doesn't it warm your hearts
Poor boys, what a farce, what a farce
