"War Songs" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
I like new fashion
I like old stories
Like my sister used to tell
This is the voice
This is the picture
I like romantics
But I don't like Steven

Old men love war songs
Love Vera Lynn
Old men love war songs
Now I'm Vera Lynn

I like the welcome
I like my sunbed
But it burns me alive
I like old heroes
I like old film stars
Dirty pictures, snap snap
I like intrusion
When she's dressed in white
A nervous bride
I don't remember
If she's black or white
This is the heart

Old men love war songs
Love Vera Lynn
Old men love war songs
Now I'm Vera Lynn

This could be it
This could be nothing
Will you remember
When the sparkle dies down
I like Ferraris
I like the fame
Appreciation in the strangest ways
I could believe
In such things for now
Don't like to crash, climb, climb
I like the dancer
Like you're supposed to
I'll keep my mouth shut
But I don't like this

Old men love war songs
Love Vera Lynn
Old men love war songs
Now I'm Vera Lynn

    General CommentSeems like Numan is singing about himself mostly, in a slightly humorous way.
    The line -
    "I like romantics
    But I don’t like steven", is a poke at Visage lead singer, Steve Strange, whom Numan did not like.
