In May of 1941, the war had just begun
The Germans had the biggest ship that had the biggest guns
The Bismarck was the fastest ship that ever sailed the sea
On her decks were guns as big as steers and shells as big as trees

Out of the cold and foggy night came the British ship the Hood
And every British seaman he knew and understood
They had to sink the Bismarck, the terror of the sea
Stop those guns as big as steers and those shells as big as trees

We’ll find the German battleship that’s makin’ such a fuss
We gotta sink the Bismarck ’cause the world depends on us
Yeah, hit the decks a-runnin’, boys, and spin those guns around
When we find the Bismarck, we gotta cut her down

The Hood found the Bismarck and on that fatal day
The Bismarck started firing 15 miles away
“We gotta sink the Bismarck” was the battle sound
But when the smoke had cleared away the mighty Hood went down

For six long days and weary nights they tried to find her trail
Churchill told the people to put every ship asail
‘Cause somewhere on that ocean I know she’s gotta be
We gotta sink the Bismarck to the bottom of the sea

We’ll find the German battleship that’s makin’ such a fuss
We gotta sink the Bismarck ’cause the world depends on us
Yeah, hit the decks a-runnin’, boys, and spin those guns around
When we find the Bismarck, we gotta cut her down

The fog was gone the seventh day and they saw the morning sun
Ten hours away from the homeland the Bismarck made its run
The Admiral of the British fleet said to turn those bows around
We found that German battleship and we’re gonna cut her down

The British guns were aimed and the shells were coming fast
The first shell hit the Bismarck, they knew she couldn’t last
That mighty German battleship is just a memory
“Sink the Bismarck” was the battle cry that shook the seven seas

We found the German battleship was makin’ such a fuss
We had to sink the Bismarck ’cause the world depends on us
We hit the deck a-runnin’ and we and spun those guns around
Yeah, we found the mighty Bismarck and then we cut her down

We found the German battleship was makin’ such a fuss
We had to sink the Bismarck ’cause the world depends on us
We hit the deck a-runnin’ and we spun those guns around
We found the mighty Bismarck and then we cut her down
