One man raises his sword in the air

The other strikes up the match

Boom the cannon goes!

 

The tanks stroll through the grass,

Crushing everything that is beneath

Boom the turret goes!

 

The planes whistle in the sky

And their hatches open wide

Boom the bomb goes!

 

Gather around the table

Discuss the conditions

Shake their hands for peace.

 

Dip in that ink

Strike with the pen

Sign the treaty for peace.

 

Raise the white flag

Hold up your hands

Surrender your land for peace.
