lyrics

The heroes of the Cold War
Bathed the rich
Stuffed the poor
Boogied down
On a blue dance floor
Don't make 'em like us anymore

And we never fired a single shot
No we never fired a shot...

The heroes of the Cold War
Though we won
We're still sore
Talking tough
To the saloon bar bore
He'll join the Village People when he finds out what's in store

And we never fired a single shot
No we never fired a shot...

Reagan stood
By the Berlin Wall
Smirked and shrugged
And watched it fall

Who knew that you
Would heed the capitalist call?
But it turns out you were just as bad as us
After all

And we never fired a single shot
No we never fired a shot...

The heroes of the Cold War
Grinding down another shabby whore
With our contempt for
Every foreign shore
We'll make damn sure
The next one will be warm....

And we never fired a single shot
No we never fired a shot...
