Gareth Flanagan And Steve Allan - The Day They Went To War
In 1914 war broke out between Britain & Germany. History repeats itself when in 2014 the same two super-powers are again in conflict, as Lewis Hamilton goes to war with Nico Rosberg.

Flanagan & Allan

Gareth

Steve

Peace is something we used to take for granted

The Mercedes was good

And so was Hamilton’s hair

We shared a lot..

The car,

The team

The data

 

And now it’s turned in to a bloody ‘mare

Oh, everything was splendid
Hunky dory.

We’d led the pack together,

A bit of a bore

But it all went wrong

And we had to write this song

About the day that Lewis & Nico went to war

 

Oh where were you?
Were you there too?
Standing in the trenches by the fences
I was there for sure
The day they went to war.
Has everybody lost their bloody senses?

"I hear your pappa got you into this"

“Ja, so did your dad”

How’s yer father?

Right or wrong
Come on sing this song
Which way are you facing?
Day or night?
Black or white?
This isn’t a war about race
It’s all about racing.

But motorsport unites us, not divides us
Two friends often will collide
Are we having-a-laugh, or are we being serious?
Remember the lads-and-lasses-lost on both sides.

Isn’t it grand, we fight over land

Just to prove that one of us is in control

We both wear a lid

The battlefield’s on the grid

We‘re fighting over the land that we call pole.

 

(Not Poland!)

Oh where were you?
Were you there too?
Standing in the trenches by the fences
I was there for sure
The day they went to war.
Has everybody lost their bloody senses?

 

Lewis, Lewis, Lewis Hamilton
(sung to the tune of Deutchland, Uber Alles)

Nico, Nico Rosberg
(sung to the tune of Land Of Hope & Glory)

 

This battle’s not a new one, it’s an old one
It’s become a bit-of-a-lark a jolly-good-spree
Scraps and scrapes, never escapes 
Enger-land and Germ-a-bloody-knee

But motorsport unites us, not divides us
Friends will collide.
Are we having-a-laugh, or are we being serious?
Let’s not forget the lads-and-lasses-lost
 

 

On both our sides.

Oh where were you?
Were you there too?
Standing in the trenches by the fences
I was there for sure
The day they went to war
Has everybody lost their bloody senses?
Has everybody lost their bloody senses?

Amen.
