Lyrics[]

Who do you think you are kidding Mr Hitler?
If you think we're on the run
We are the boys who will stop your little game
We are the boys who will make you think again
‘So who do you think you are kidding Mr Hitler?
If you think old England's done
Mr. Brown goes off to town on the 8:21
But he comes home each evening and he's ready with his gun
'Cos who do you think you are kidding Mr. Hitler,
If you think old England's done
