Ticket to the world, learn a trade or two
Hey now, it suits me somehow, how 'bout you?
Freeze me in the wind, burn me in the sun
Hey ho, on with the show, good clean fun

After it all I'll take you home, after this dream has gone
If we're lucky we'll never be called to stand again
Defenders of the peace with all we've got
Someone has to fire the warning shot

Masters of the air, rulers of the sea
Hey hey our turn today, victory
Nothing you can lose, everything to gain
Hey guys, try it for size, this ball and chain

After it all I'll take you home, after this dream has gone
If we're lucky we'll never be called to stand again
Defenders of the peace with all we've got
Someone has to fire the warning shot

Teach all your children to follow the leader
And do as he says without question or reason
Fight for the flag and to hell with the rest
Surrender your freedom to serve with the best

After it all I'll take you home, after this dream has gone
If we're lucky we'll never be called to stand again
Defenders of the peace with all we've got
Someone has to fire the warning

After it all I'll take you home, after this dream has gone
If we're lucky we'll never be called to stand again
Defenders of the peace with all we've got
Someone has to fire the warning shot
