Chorus:
1956 – Budapest is rising.

Freddie:
I’d have thought you’d support Chorus:
Any attack on these people. 1956 – Budapest is rising.
On the people who ran
Mindlessly over your childhood.
Don’t let them fool you
For 30 years on,
They’re the same.

Chorus:
1956 – Budapest is fighting.
1956 – Budapest is falling.

Freddie:
They see chess as a war Chorus:
Playing with pawns just like Poland. 1956 – Budapest is dying.
If you walk out on me
You’re really betraying you father.
Were he alive now he’d surely
Be dying of shame.

Florence:
You know that there’s nothing I’ve done
That he’d be ashamed of
In my whole life!
Why’d you have to do this to me?
