Lyrics - This Means War

(Young, Young & Johnson)

Taken from the album Blow Up Your Video

Recorded at Studio Miraval, Le Val, France


Released in 1988

Produced by Harry Vanda & George Young

Oh yeah
You keep your head down yeah
I - I want you - I want you to - I want you to march
Eyes go right shoulder arms
Left wheel turn show your charms
Change your clothes cut your hair
Ain't no joke ain't no place for kids

When flags are high hear the battle cry
Treaty gone see the bandits fly
Dig that trench watch that blast
Shell-shock come comin' fast
Name and rank on parade
We might get laid by a hand grenade
Do you know what it means ?, do you know what it mean ?

This -
Means war
This means war, this means war, this means war
I said, this means war, this means war
This, means war

The bullet got your number on it
Run for cover, hit the dirt
Call for your mother, ooh yeah

I - I need you - I need you to - I need you to fire
Cock your gun wet your sights
Get the bull dead to rights
Volunteer one pace back
On the beach ain't no place for kids ah, ooh no

Well the flak is high on a bomber run
You don't talk back to an ack-ack gun
Fire rage and you're in the blitz
Keep your head or you're blown to bits
Name and rank on parade
We might get laid by a hand grenade
Do you know what I mean ?, do you know what it means ?

This -
Means -
War

Who's goin' there ? is it a friend or foe ?
Propaganda time on the radio
Top brass shout as they clown around
Peace talk die in Geneva town

Do you know what I mean ?, do you know what it means ?
Do you know what I mean ?, do you know what it means ?

This means war, yeah, this means war
I said, this means war, this means war
This means war
Where's the 7th Cavalry ?
Aaah

Aah, this means war, told you before
This means war, you know what's the score
I said, this means war, this means war
This -
Means -
War
(You're all dead)
