Vipers of the Commonwealth!
Vipers of the Commonwealth!
Vipers of the Commonwealth!
They're vipers of the Commonwealth

Can you hear them wail?
Too big to fail
What does risk entail?
When you're heads and you're tails

Are you playing a game
In a mad arcade?
Why are you afraid
of mutual aid?

Do you know your place
In the global race?
Are you in the grip
Of a vile embrace?
