    We're all going on a capability holiday,
    No more carrier strike for a decade or two,

    Cos then we'd be in trouble oo-ooo.

    We're all going on a capability holiday,
    Heavy armour's not a pri-or-i-ty,
    Hope the baddies don't have a T-80,
    Or a T-Seventy two-oo-ooo,
    Or a T-Seventy two.

    We're all going on a capability holiday,
    No maritime reconnaisance aircraft for you,
    Sorry Andrew about your boomer submarines,
    We can't sanitise the sea for you-oo-ooo,
    We can't sanitise the sea for you.

    We're all going on a capability holiday,
    50 JSF will have to do.
    No more Harrier or Tornado,
    Close Air support's too scary oo-ooo-ooo-oo
    We're dropping the grunts in the poo.
