home for a while
When the nukes come raining down it's great to be alive
World War Three could be such fun, protect and survive
Protect and survive

The government's made a document to help prevent embarrassment
In the event of an accident catching us with our trousers down
It's no good to you when you're dead, far less when you're alive
The name of this piece of paper is 'Protect and Survive'

A nuclear strike can be recognized, it will stand out in a crowd
There's a flash, a bang, a blast of heat and a great big mushroom cloud
So if you happen to notice one at the end of your street
Please pick up your telephone and inform your local police

Put sticky-tape on your windows, block your ears, close your eyes
It won't make any difference, there's no time to watch yourself fry
If you find yourself in a target zone and you haven't got a shelter
Take a spade into the garden and dig like merry hell, sir

When Armageddon gets under way and the rockets are pouring down
The politicians who started it will all hide underground
And when they finally re-emerge with no life to be found
They can administrate to the rubble and order each other around

They give us a four minute warning when the rockets are on their way
To give us time to panic and Christians time to pray
So when you hear the sirens go put your head between your thighs
While straining in this posture you can make one final gesture
With a little muscular pressure you can kiss your arse goodbye

Le parole della versione dei Dubliners
PROTECT AND SURVIVE

Well the government's made a document
To help prevent embarrassment
And in the event of an accident
Catching us with our trousers down
It's no use to you when you're dead
Nor even when alive
And the name of this piece of paper is
Protect and survive

So when the nukes come raining down
It's great to be alive, well
World War Three can be such fun
If you protect and survive
Protect and survive

Well a nuclear strike can be recognised
It would stand out in a crowd
There's a flash, then a bang, then a blast of heat
Then a bloody great mushroom cloud
So if you happen to see one at the end of your street
Would you please pick up the telephone
And inform your local police

So when the nukes come raining down
It's great to be alive, well
World War Three can be such fun
If you protect and survive
Protect and survive
Put sticky tape on your windows
Block your ears and close your eyes
But it won't make a blind bit of difference
You won't have to watch yourself fry
If you find yourself in the target zone
And you haven't got a shelter
Take a spade into the garden
And dig like merry hell, sir

So when the nukes come raining down
It's great to be alive, well
World War Three can be such fun
If you protect and survive
Protect and survive

They've got strategic ICBM's
Both theatre and tactical
With independently targeted
Multiple re-entry vehicles
Backfire bombers, Polaris sub's, cruise missiles
And the boys who hang around the Pentagon
Can't wait to use these toys

So when the nukes come raining down
It's great to be alive, well
World War Three can be such fun
If you protect and survive
Protect and survive
When Armageddon gets underway
And the rockets come pouring down
All the bloody politicians who started it
Will scuttle off underground
And when they finally re-emerge
With no life to be found
They can administrate the rubble
And they can order each other around

So when the nukes come raining down
It's great to be alive, well
World War Three can be such fun
If you protect and survive
Protect and survive

For they give us a four-minute warning
When the rockets are on their way
To give us time to panic and Christians time to pray
So when you hear the siren's going
Place your head between your thighs
Whilst maintaining this posture
You can make a final gesture
And with a little muscular pressure
You can kiss your arse goodbye

So when the nukes come raining down
It's great to be alive, well
World War Three can be such fun
If you protect and survive
Protect and survive
Protect and...
