Other kind of people ; Based on deception ; In the hands of God ; Complete war preparations ; Ringing bells and banging drums ; I swear to be successful ; A situation full of dynamite ; Things are automatically going to happen ; Wherever it might be found ; Cleave the enemy in two ; A match for anything afloat ; That was the monkey wrench ; To be considered a war warning ; Our diplomats will have to be sacrificed ; The vacant sea ; Glory or oblivion ; Great unease in all of our minds ; Sure indication of war ; Another straw in the wind ; On a keg of dynamite ; This means war ; The Japs are planning some deviltry ; An awful urgency ; Tora! tora! tora! ; Sound general quarters ; They caught them asleep. by God! ; Oh, how powerful is the Imperial Navy ; The chance of a lifetime -- Aftermath. An excitement indeed ; Our flag was still there ; Clouds over mountains ; Not on the alert ; Dereliction of duty ; The ashes of a bitter past ; Something ought to be done ; Full and fair disclosure ; We have a job to do ; Errors of judgement ; We want the truth ; A partisan matter ; The evidence piles up ; A fighting chance ; Fixing the blame ; The verdict of history
