 Puppets on a string are gaily dancing
The heads are falling in France
One last bloody glance

A weary pugilistic champ is fighting one last time, for his very life
Will he take the dive?

Red, white, blue, green!
Flyboys and marines
Clean, always very clean
Deserts, valleys, oceans filled with tears
Desperate prayers fill God's ears

A figurehead is gaily pantomiming in blackface
A scene from Lear
But the words are clear

Outside a holy beggar's soundly sleeping
No pillow, no bed of nails
Found the Holy Grail

Red, white, blue, green!
Doctor Guillotine
Clean, oh so very clean
Deserts, valleys, oceans filled with tears
Desperate prayers fill God's ears

So puppets on a string are gaily dancing
The heads are falling in France
One last bloody glance
One last bloody glance
One last bloody glance
One last bloody glance
