Yes, I know you did your bit back then. But what was it you won?
Take a good look round you now. Whose side were you on?
And I wonder if you understand at all. And I wonder if you ever ask yourself

When everyone has an equal chance to live the life they buy
When free health care can save your life. But queue until you die
Then I wonder if you understand at all. And I wonder if you ever ask yourself

Is that what you fought the war for. Is that what you fought the war for
Is that what you fought the war for. Is that what you fought the war for

When still the muscles make the man. And men make women pay
When Britain's flag is a badge of hate. And just the fair can play
When still the homeless, jobless cry. When money shouts and lies
And buys off just enough to vote. Pass by the other side

Then I wonder if you understand at all. And I wonder if you never ask yourself

Is that what you fought the war for. Is that what you fought the war for
Is that what you fought the war for. Is that what you fought the war for

At the going down of the sun
And in the light of day
All you need remember is
We won't be taken like your generation again

Is that what you fought the war for. Is that what you fought the war for
Is that what you fought the war for. Is that what you fought the war for
