Warning, warning, nuclear attack 
Atomic sounds designed to blow your mind 
World war three - nuclear attack 
Rocking atomically - this third world war - atomic sounds 

The man in black he told me the latest Moscow news about the storm across the Red Sea 
They drove their ball point views 

I'm the man in grey, I'm just the man at sea  
And I don't have a say in the war games that they play 

Warning, warning, nuclear attack 
Shark attack to hit you on your back 
World war three 

The Mickey Mouse badge told the Ayatollah at his feet 
You drink your oil you schmuck, we'll eat our heads of wheat 

I'm the man in grey, I'm just the man at see  
And I don't have a say in the war games that they play 

Boom shakalaka boom 
Nuclear nuclear, nuclear war 
Warning, warning, nuclear attack 
The boom never ban 
Shark attack
