Lyrics -
Oh What A Time
In nineteen hundred and forty-one
The Second World War had just begun
Hitler himself from Berlin stretched out his arms to the European countries and pulled them in
Oh What A Time
Oh, What A Time -
Great God Almighty Now
What A Time
What A Time!
Two thousand eight -
Someone heard the call
Everyone thought we had it all
It seems our dreams had all come true
The whole wide world - they thought it too
Oh What A Time
Oh, What A Time -
Great God Almighty Now
What A Time
What A Time!
Today the sun will soon turn black
I hope that means there'll be no turning back
The time to grab all the things we lack
Like justice for all - That's a natural fact
Oh What A Time
Oh, What A Time -
Great God Almighty Now
What A Time
What A Time!
Oh, What A Time!
