Operation Mincemeat

Operation Mincemeat was a successful British deception operation of the Second World War to disguise the 1943 Allied invasion of Sicily. Two members of British intelligence obtained the body of Glyndwr Michael, a tramp who died from eating rat poison, dressed him as an officer of the Royal Marines and placed personal items on him identifying him as the fictitious Captain (Acting Major) William Martin. Correspondence between two British generals that suggested that the Allies planned to invade Greece and Sardinia, with Sicily as merely the target of a feint, was also placed on the body. Part of the wider Operation Barclay, Mincemeat was based on the 1939 Trout memo, written by Rear Admiral John Godfrey, the Director of the Naval Intelligence Division, and his … more »

So, Hitler's on the train and he's heading for the border
We take out a porter that no one will miss
Now, our boy's under cover
He poisons the water
God that's brilliant but listen to this

I've designed a new kind of missile
So tiny it's shot from a pen
It's full of airborne sedative
Tied to affect his relative
But one whiff's enough to floor ten grown men

We'll shoot him en route
Our pursuit will be fruitful,
And the fuhrer is out cold
But what the hell happens then?

So, Hitler's on the train and he's feeling kind of tired
He's drugged in a fug, like a mental abyss
Mein pants have been stolen
We'll trade them for Poland
God that's brilliant but listen to this
But I haven't got to the exploding socks yet
You've had a verse

I know a lady assassin
She's lithe but impossibly strong
She's killed half of Moscow
She owns her own crossbow
A master of disguise who can speak any tongue

She's stationed in Haiti, patiently waiting
But one call from me and she'll be ours for a song

So, Hitler's on the train and he's coming back from Burma
Our girl hurls herself from a nearby tree
She crashes through the window disguised as a flamingo
In the world that unfurls, she kills a guard or three
She raises up her knife
It's dripping blood from the slaughter

Hitler shits himself as she blows him a kiss
His guards try to pour in
She barricades the door and
God that's brilliant but listen to this

If this is a man in a fancy suit
All that we need is a swanky Tuxedo
Fleming, stop going on about your bloody novels
Several publishers are interested
Your mother doesn't count
Come on boys Remember what Churchill said

If you want to beat them Gerries
You've got to call upon the visionaries

Cause if you're in trouble
Don't scream and shout
Just call the English public schoolboys
We'll sort it all out
It's time for ambition, time to show you've got vision

We're the best brains in Britain
Now listen to this

All we need is a shiny tuxedo
And my design for a submarine car (for god's sake)
About seven pretty ladies
Aston Martins or Mercedes
A base in a volcano and a laser cigar

Some crocodile moccasins
A watch with a garotte in it
A vodka martini waiting at the bar
And there's our man, who's a really famous hero
He wears cool suits and he has a big gun
He has great adventures and ladies want to kiss him

I do like it when the ladies want to kiss me

God he's brilliant and his name is James
I've even got a catchphrase for him
The name's James James
No, makes no sense

Hitler's on the train, or a boat or other vehicle
We send in an assassin or a robot, that's illegal
They shoot him, stab him, rack him

And he's wearing a tuxedo
He kills the guards, snogs the girl and says something cool

We tie him up We poison him I think this plan has veered off
He take him back to Blighty, steal his trousers, blow his head off

Our victory's assured
Whilst we go and win the war

God that's brilliant
God I'm brilliant
God we're brilliant
Now listen to this
