There's an epidemic
Stirring passions in young hearts
Even the old campaigners
Have got it really bad

Well we ain't seen nothing like it
Since coronation day
But when the street parties sound
I'm going underground
To keep the rabid hounds at bay

Oh my my -- this war dance
A patriotic romance
No we ain't seen nothing like it
Since coronation day

But when the tickertape flies
And blood is on the rise
You know it's got you in its sway
You got yourself a war dance

There's a cheap sensation
Keeping Fleet Street wide awake
Everyone wants a slice of
The jingoistic cake

And they're resurrecting Churchill
And bringing national service back
Fueling power and glory fever
Makes for a sicker Union Jack

Yes I'm talking about this war dance
A patriotic romance
And I know all you poets
Have seen it all before 
About the stirring of those young hearts
Back in the first world war
Oh my my this war dance...
