[Churchill’s 1940 speech]

“We shall go on ’til the end,

we shall fight on the seas and oceans.

We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be.

We shall never surrender.”

History recalls how great the fall can be

While everybody’s sleeping

The boats put out to sea

Borne on the wings of time

It seemed the answers were so easy to find

“Too late,” the prophets cry

The island’s sinking, let’s take to the sky

Called the man a fool

Stripped him of his pride

Everyone was laughing

Up until the day he died

Oh, though the wound went deep

Still he’s calling us out of our sleep

My friends, we’re not alone

He waits in silence to lead us all home

So you tell me that you find it hard to grow

Well I know, I know, I know

And you tell me that you’ve many seeds to sow

Well I know, I know, I know

[Distant choir sings William Blake’s ‘Jerusalem’]

“And did those feet in ancient time

Walk upon England’s mountains green:

And was the holy Lamb of God,

On England’s pleasant pastures seen!”


Can you hear what I’m saying?

Can you see the parts that I’m playing?

Holy Man, Rocker Man, come on Queenie,

Joker Man, Spider Man, Blue Eyed Meanie

So you found your solution

What will be your last contribution?

Live it up, rip it up, why so lazy?

Give it out, dish it out, let’s go crazy, yeah
