Never, never, never again
Will Tommy die for you

Over the top the unknown go
Into a land where no man lives
Say goodbye to his friends
Cause they will never see Tommy again
General, general on the top of the hill
Middle class man whose blood won’t spill
Kept out of the action, out of harm’s way
Cause he’s gonna find that Tommy’s dead

Never, never, never again

War is over so they say
How many Tommys died that day
Now it’s over count the cost
A ring of roses for those that lost
A place in history is what they’ve got
For what they paid it’s not a lot
Medals and statues are no compensation
For working class heros who died for you

Never, never, never again
Will Tommy die for you

Over the top the unknown go
Into a land where no man lives
Say goodbye to his friends
Cause they will never see Tommy again
General, general on the top of the hill
Middle class man whose blood won’t spill
Kept out of the action, out of harm’s way
Cause he’s gonna find that Tommy’s dead
