The Lyrics

This song was inspired by watching Das Boot...
Where you can serve the Reich an'
be an elite seaman
clear Red Ensign off the seas?
Sinking lots of Tommies
prevent them helping Commies
being all what you can be?
No more Nazi messes
no goose-stepping SS
deep beneath the seas of grey
listen to the diesel
U-boat moves like weasel
serve your country night and day;

In the U-Boat! Where you can sail under the seas
In the U-Boat! Yes, you can be sunk with the ease
In the U-Boat ! Share your bunk with other guy
In the U-Boat ! With no privacy to come by
In the U-Boat! Come on, launch the torpedoes
In the U-Boat! In Davy Jones that Tommy goes!
In the U-Boat! Be careful with those depth charge loads!
In the U-Boat!
In the U-Boat!

They want you!
They want you!
They want you in the U-boat crew!

If you like risk-taking
against all odds a-making
thinking that you can survive
sailing North Atlantic;
Tommies are qute frantic
they want us dear or alive...
Where hunters become hunted
we are now quite wanted
as they cracked Enigma code;
thanks to all those boffins
U-boats are steel coffins
when they drop a depth charge load;

In the U-Boat! Where the ASDIC sounds like "ping"
In the U-Boat! Yes, that is one goddamn thing!
In the U-Boat! It's the Tommies up above!
In the U-Boat! Now they drop a depth charge load!
In the U-Boat! Soon those trashcans will go "bang!"
In the U-Boat! They will drown all of our gang!
In the U-Boat! Let's get the hell out while we can!
In the U-Boat!
In the U-Boat!
