"Glad It's All Over" as written by and T. Mansfield Captain Sensible....
Submarines in the harbour
incognito
Submarines of your dreams
not mine
The red red sky
must take the price
For giving to the people
who never never go to war

We´re glad it´s all over
We´re glad it´s all over
We´re glad it´s all

glad it´s all over
We´re glad it´s all over

The red red sky
must take the price
The red red sky
is giving to the people
that never never go to war

We´re glad it´s all over
We´re glad it´s all over
We´re glad it´s all over

    General CommentI remember when this came out it was said that the song was about an incident when a soviet (communist Russia) submarine was reported to have been detected submerged in a harbour in Sweden.

    On the wikipedia page about Captain Sensible it says that the song is an anti Falklands war song but this seems unlikely if you read/listen to the lyrics and look at this wikipedia page which details several instances of Soviet submarines entering Swedish waters during the Cold War

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    During recent European conflicts the Swedes have remained neutral and have not taken part in any wars, so they could be described as "the people who "never, never go to war"
