Polly put the kettle on
I met a man and asked of them
He told me that the pound was strong

I knew that bridge was falling
So Jimmy put the gas masks on
And swam and swam up to the dam
And everyone came along

Don't think we can talk [unverified]
[Unverified] making war
Don't think we can risk it
Another heavy biscuit [unverified]

Can I beat the count of ten?
I'm lying just to stay alive
Dying in my [unverified] again
Taken to a dive, trying to survive

When's it going to take you
And how's it gonna make you feel
You can't even spell it
So how you gonna tell if it's real?

A bomb blew up my shelter
I never even felt a thing
I brushed away the dust and
Gave Ole Jimmy Custer a ring

Don't think we can talk [unverified]
[Unverified] making war
Don't think we can risk it
Another heavy biscuit [unverified]

Can I beat the count of ten?
I'm lying just to stay alive
Dying in my [unverified] again
Taken to a dive, trying to survive

I knew that bridge was falling
So Jimmy put the gas masks on
And swam and swam up to the dam
And everyone came along
