War has had its apologians ever since history began
From the time of the Greeks and Trojans when they sang of Arms and the Man
But if you ask me to name the best, sir, I'll tell you the one I mean
Head and shoulders above the rest, sir, was the War of 14−18
Head and shoulders above the rest, sir, stands the War of 14−18
There were the wars against all those Louis's, there were Caesar's wars in Gaul
There was Britain's war in Suez which wasn't a war at all
There was the war of the Spanish Succession, many other wars in between
But they've none of them made an impression like the War of 14−18
They didn't make the same impression as the War of 14−18
The war of American Independence, that was enjoyable by and large
Watching England's free descendants busy defeating German Jarge
But the Boer War was a poor war, and I'm still inclined to lean
Though sir it possibly isn't your war, towards the War of 14−18
No it probably isn't your war, sir, the War of 14−18
There are certainly plenty of wars to choose from, you pick whichever one you
please
Like the one we've had all the news from, liberating the Vietnamese
All those wars for God and country, be it Korean or Philippine
Sir if you'll pardon my effrontery, give me the War of 14−18
If you'll pardon my effrontery, sir, the War of 14−18
Every war has its own attraction, from total war to border raid
Call it rebellion, police action, war of containment or crusade
I don't underrate the late war we see so often on the screen
But that wasn't the really great war, like the War of 14−18
No the late war wasn't the great war, like the War of 14−18
No doubt Mars among his chattels has got some really splendid war
Full of bigger and bloodier battles than we've ever enjoyed before
But until the time occurs, sir, when that greater war comes on the scene
The one that I on the whole prefer, sir, is the War of 14−18
Yes the one that I still prefer, sir, is the War of 14−18
