The Lyrics

looked through the papers just yesterday
England's a-cocking up their guns
drove my tank in but it's broken down
wait for mechanics to come

don't think the navy knows,
it's for Iraq they're striving,
who filled the sea with stones?
it's never been bad driving

Pilot mistake, Englands Mistake
Design Mistakes, Englands Mistake

after my shoes had melted today
and replacements have failed to come
the surface here now, of the desert
is a bloody hard place to run

don't try to fly our aircraft
the pilot just crashed one
they sold a load to Saddam
he's broken every one

Pilot mistake, Englands Mistake
Design Mistakes, Englands Mistake

well that Tony Blair, went up to Bush
and we know that he has no willpower
is it on yet, are we in a rush?
my army's morale has gone sour

we'll not have no ground force
we'll not have no air power
we may see Saddam quite soon
or miss him by an hour

Pilot mistake, Englands Mistake
Design Mistakes, Englands Mistake
