The fishing boats roll out across the dark green Channel water As they gather speed for Flanders they cut their nets away It's not herring they'll be pulling from the waters on this morning They'll reap a bitter harvest from the Fires of Calais Twenty leagues from France I saw the amber soaked horizon In our lee, the Cliffs of Dover fall beneath the Channel waves Where waters used to sing a song to sooth the hearts of fishers Now, we hear the rolling thunder from the Fires of Calais As we pull in tight to shore, this armada bent on rescue We curse the men behind the desks who sell our lives this way Never signed on board to save them from this bloody lack of planning That strands these fine young men beneath the Fires of Calais On the beach, allied confusion will they stand or are they running If it's run, where will they go to between the sea and the melee? On the flanks, the troop's advancing and with heavy guns, they're firing
