The Lyrics Are Below





All clear wail the sirens

Sunshine on the wasteland

Old man sitting in the white sand

Think we're in for a big surprise

Right between the eyes


Seemed a good idea

To drop a bomb on the wasteland here

Only one man could be seen

And he was old and so serene

Captain sat in his deck chair

And the red light flashed Beware

Pilot felt quite big-time

As the bomb sailed through the air

Well, they danced and sang

When the bang went bang

When the lights popped out

And the smoke began to clear

It was positively queer




"Die" said the General

"Cobblers" said the man

So the Pentagon sent a cable

And the Queen a telegram

A-bombs, H-bombs, even very small ones

Ripped apart that sand

'Til the stench was just revolting

And the sky a greenish tan

But the soldier said "Sir,

there's a crack in the world"

And the figures went "squash",

and the bits flew far and wide

How the universe sighed!


(CHORUS twice)


When the smoke had blown away

There was nothing left to view

Except a man dear Lord who looked like you

Floating high up in the sky
