This is not a test of the Emergency Broadcast System,
This is the Real Thing!!!
And if you tape my voice, which you should never ever do
You’ll kiss your ass goodbye, I’m talking to you

Got plans for helter-skelter
Kids, Mom and Dad in the shelter
Cowering with flag held high
American will never die
Make plans to rise once more
And be ready for World War Four
Who need civil defense?
Who needs civil defense?

Civil defense, Civil defense
Civil defense, don’t even try
Civil defense, Civil defense
Civil defense, we’re all gonna die

Won’t matter who is first
We’ll be blown off the earth
Don’t try to survive the burst
Rotting death is even worse
Why try to survive that day?
No one else will anyway
Who needs civil defense?
Who needs civil defense?

Civil defense, Civil defense
Civil defense, don’t even try
Civil defense, Civil defense
Civil defense, we’re all gonna die

Fuck You!
