My polyester trench coat looks real swell
But inside it, I feel as hot as hell.
And when the storm hit, I found out
It is no raincoat, I have no more doubts.
Which of us desires to dress for war
This is what the trench coat was made for.
British soldiers on the battlefields
Died in mud locked trenches for what yield?
Do we want to know the Middle East
Was divided by the conquerors at their feast
France and Britain split the old Empire
We see from that the rise of Herr Hitler.
The war to end all wars is on stage yet.
Go hang these trench coats round the scapegoat’s neck
