  • Soldiers in the desert sand, still clingin' to a gun.
    No-one is the winner an' everyone must lose.
    Suddenly the war is over: that's the news.

    Suddenly celebrity is somethin' back in style.
    Back to runnin' tabloid for a while.
    Pain's almost everywhere, the whole world's got the blues.
    Suddenly the war is over: that's the news.

    That's the news, that's the news.
    That's the ever-lovin', blessed, headline news.
    Someone's missin;' in Modesto, an' it's sad about the clues.
    Suddenly the war is over: that's the news.

    Instrumental break.

    Suddenly the cost of war is somethin' out of sight.
    Lost a lotta heroes in the fight.
    Politicians do all the talkin': soldiers pay the dues.
    Suddenly the war is over, that's the news.

    That's the news, that's the news.
    That's the ever-lovin', blessed, headline news.
    Politicians do all the talkin': soldiers pay the dues.
    Suddenly the war is over, that's the news.
