Battle Of Britain Tribute

When Britain had its back to the wall

The Air Force came to our aid

They fought in the Battle of Britain

Many scarifies alas were made

Those brave pilots fought with courage

They fought, as attacks did not cease

Defending this country of ours

So this nation could live in peace

No rest for those brave men

As they flew both days and nights

Dogfights they were involved in

They shot when the enemy was in site

All the pilots and ground crews

Fighter and Bomber command

So many lives were lost in battle

To save this our sacred land

We will never forget the Battle of Britain

Those brave men fought for you and me

Putting their lives at risk every day

We salute you for keeping our country free
