LyricsEdit

Original suggestion from Michael Weller in script draft:
It was a hell of a war
A real peach of a war
The kind of war
That makes you look ahead
To just one more
The islanders were islanders
A Jap was a Jap
Americans were Yanks
And that's all there was
To that!

Yadde yadde hey, by Christ, by damn, by jingo
What a war, by heck, by hell, by dingo
Give me just one more like the one back in '44
Just one more like the one back in '44
Just one more like the one back in '44
What a war, what a war, what a war, what a war
What a, what a, what a, what a, what a, what a, what a, what a
Yadde yadde yadde yadde yadde yadde

Yadde yadde hey, nudge nudge, wink wink, chuckle chuckle
What a war, leer leer, you bet, yuckle yuckle
Give me just one more like the one back in '44
Just one more like the one back in '44
Just one more like the one back in '44
What a war, what a war, what a war, what a war
What a, what a, what a, what a, what a, what a, what a, what a
Yadde yadde yadde yadde yadde yadde

Yadde yadde hey, gee whiz, hot damn, golly jeepers
What a war, bonzai, my eyes, jeepers creepers
Give me just one more like the one back in '44
Just one more like the one back in '44
Just one more like the one back in '44
What a war, what a war, what a war, what a war
What a, what a, what a, what a, what a, what a, what a, what a
Yadde yadde yadde yadde yadde yadde
War!

A nap in the sunshine (a nap in the sunshine)
A dip in the ocean (a dip in the ocean)
An hour or two of combat (combat?)
And then back for promotion, ahh!

I'd like to call those Japs and ask
I'd like to call those Japs and ask
Hey boys, well have you got the time
To fight another war like that with us
Just for auld lang syne

Oh what an uproarious
Oh what a totally glorious
The Fuehrer he was fuehrious
And we were so victorious
War!
