I've known no war
And if I ever do I won't know for sure
Who'll be fighting whom
For the soldier's lonely tomb
Now opens as soon as
The referee's gun starts to roar
I'll know no war
No never known war

Galbraith took his pen
To break down the men
Of the German army defeated
On the nineteenth day
Of a spring day in May
Albert Speer was deleted

And as soon as the battle was over
I was born in victorious clover
And I've never been shot at or gassed
Never tortured or stabbed
And I'm sure, I'll never know war, no
I'll never know war, no no no

I know I'll never know war
And if I ever do the glimpse will be short
Fireball in the sky, no front line battle cries
Can be heard as the button is pushed
By a soul that's been bought
I'll know no war, no
I'll know no war

In an' out of reach loft
The medals are lost
They belong to a lone broken sailor
His provinces now
Are the bars of the town
His songs and his poems of failure

For his grandchildren can't see the glory
And his own kids are bored with the story
But for him they'd have burned behind netting
From the brink they were dragged
And I'm sure, I'll never know war
I'll know no war

I've known no war
And if I ever do I won't know for sure
Who'll be fighting whom
For the soldier's lonely tomb
Now opens as soon as
The referee's gun starts to roar
I've known no war

War, I've known no war
I'll never know war
And if I ever know it the glimpse will be short
Fireball in the sky, no front line battle cries
Can be heard as the button is pushed
By a soul that's been bought

And the armies remaining
Will judge without people or courts
And there's no point pretending
That knowing will help us abort
I've known no war
