  • Whatever happened to
    Leon Trotsky?
    He got an ice pick
    That made his ears burn

    Whatever happened to
    Dear old Lenin?
    The great Elmyra
    And Sancho Panza?
    Whatever happened to the heroes?
    Whatever happened to the heroes?

    Whatever happened to
    All of the heroes?
    All the Shakespearoes?
    They watched their Rome burn
    Whatever happened to the heroes?
    Whatever happened to the heroes?

    No more heroes any more
    No more heroes any more

    Whatever happened to
    All of the heroes?
    All the Shakespearoes?
    They watched their Rome burn
    Whatever happened to the heroes?
    Whatever happened to the heroes?

    No more heroes any more
    No more heroes any more
    No more heroes any more
    No more heroes any more Writer/s: Brian John Duffy, David Greenfield, Hugh Alan Cornwell, Jean Jacques Burnel
