Got ’em

we gone blasted them out of the sky
they was flying so fast they were gone
and these bombs was all the warning they were going to get
bam bam bash
never thought those birds would fly
maybe to Moscow – bet they’ll be glad they didn’t try it
and all the others too
cos we got it – the bird the bombs
we used them
and they roared.
