    The old archduke with the Death Rattle Blues
    Sat hacking up a lung.
    And in his grief he grit his teeth
    And bit off half his tongue.

    He called for the coppersmith to come
    And ten able-bodied men
    To craft a contraption to patch him up
    And this is what they sing:

    "Hasten ye fellows! Fasten the bellows!
    Pump him til he's dead.
    Oompah til his eyes pop out
    And the gauge is in the red.

    Sharpen, ye fellows, the dark mandocellos
    Send soldiers into town.
    Sound the sousaphone-fare
    And let out with a shout, your

    Iron Lung Oompah! Glockenspiel und Tuba!
    Join the funeral march and chorus,
    A Grim Hymn from the deep Black Forest.
    Take a long deep breath and sing your
    Iron Lung Oompah!"

    The old archduke in his tinman suit
    turned fire engine red.
    From a purple hue to a still-born blue
    Indicating he was dead.

    The rivets started poppin' out
    His monocle cracked in half.
    His head spun and the clockwork drum
    Blew off in a blast.

    The regicidal maniacs
    stood round in a ring of fire.
    Left abaft by the copper shaft
    Not knowing "what now" or "why?"

    Sharpen, ye fellows, the dark mandocellos
    Send soldiers into town.
    Sound the sousaphone-fare
    And let out with a shout, your

    Iron Lung Oompah! Glockenspiel und Tuba!
    Join the funeral march and chorus,
    A Grim Hymn from the deep Black Forest.
    Take a long deep breath and sing your
    Iron Lung Oompah!"

                              • This is great!

                                I never really listened to the lyrics in the Billy Idol version.
                                "The blade itself incites to deeds of violence".
