[Winston Churchill speech excerpts] We shall go on till the end... We shall fight on the seas and oceans... We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be... We shall never surrender! [Verse 1] History recalls how great the fall can be While everybody's sleeping, the boats put out to sea Born on the wings of time It seemed the answers were so easy to find "Too late," the prophets cry The island's sinking, let's take to the sky [Verse 2] Called the man a fool, stripped him of his pride Oh, everyone was laughing up until the day he died Oh, though the wound went deep Still he's calling us out of our sleep My friends, we're not alone He waits in silence to lead us all home [Chorus] So you tell me that you find it hard to grow Well I know, I know, I know And you tell me that you've many seeds to sow Well I know, I know, I know (distant choir sings 'Jerusalem' almost inaudibly) And was the Holy Lamb of God On England's pleasant pastures seen? And did the Countenance Divine Shine forth upon our clouded hills? Dreamer... [Verse 3] Can you hear what I'm saying Can you see the parts that I'm playing "Holy man, rocker man, come on, Queenie Joker Man, Spider Man, blue-eyed Meanie" So you found your solution What will be your last contribution? "Live it up, rip it up, why so lazy? Give it out, dish it out, let's go crazy Yeah!"
