Let's Do It, Let's Start a War

When the crowds all around
Clamour loud for Lebensraum
And they man the tanks
Fighters far overseas
Armed with guns and IEDs
March in ranks - Left, right, left, right
Politicians are not daft, help their kids to dodge the draft
As the troops jump through hoops on the shore,
When the foe beats down the door, knocks you down with shock and awe
It's war.

Kings do it, queens do it
Armed detachments of Marines do it
Let's do it
Let's start a war

All those crowned heads do it, Reds do it
Men with tea-tow'ls on their heads do it
Let's do it
Let's start a war

Napol-e-on Bonaparte did it
Till we gave him what for
Hitler he started it
Now I've proved Godwin's Law

Old Kaiser Bill got a thrill from it
Maynard Keynes and Wilson got the bill from it
Let's do it
Let's start a war

The Argentines do it, fiends do it,
And the Mekon and the Treens do it,
Let's do it,
Let's start a war.

The House of Lords do it, dukes do it,
Trident submarines with nukes do it,
Let's do it,
Let's start a war.

The IRA, so they say, do it,
Hand in hand with Sinn Fein,
The CIA do it,
Bay of Pigs and Ukraine

Italian Fasc-ists and Daesh do it,
Schizophrenic gunmen high on hash do it,
Let's do it
Let's start a war
