The Lyrics

Warning: This is a very dark story of two German-Jewish brothers that have fought the Nazis and have been shot. The Gestapo is closing in and they are going to die. The song is from their POV. The German term "bubi" means "little brother" (akin to "little buddy" in US). Many will find this very disturing... it is NOT meant to be funny at all, but educational and emotional. It certainly is NOT Anti-Semitic. If anything, it represents armed resistance to the Nazis, but is shrouded in hopelessness and deep despair... Not all parodies are positive and funny, some are negative, dark, tragedies told in song. This is the latter type. Like others here, I am not authorizing any comments on religious themes nor materials that are this dark. I just hope each viewer can read this objectively and with maturity, knowing the history behind what has been put to song...
BROTHER: They say we're wanted by the Gestapo
Don’t know if we’re gonna live to see tomorrow
HIRAM: Well I don't know, that may be true
'Cause they shot me, and bubi they shot you

BROTHER: They shot you bubi
They shot you bubi

BROTHER: They say our lives are worthless
Fighting’s over, my ammo’s all been spent
HIRAM: I guess that's so, we don't have much time
But at least I still got some ammo for this 9 (mm)

BROTHER: They shot you bubi
They shot you bubi

HIRAM: You won’t live to see the morning
They shot you, and bubi you’re dying
BROTHER: It’s OK, I’m not sad, you're here now
And if I die, then I‘ll die glad…

BROTHER: Don't let them say that we were wrong
Just take care, Hiram, you gotta be strong
HIRAM: Then put your small hand in mine
Close your eyes, this is the end of the line

BROTHER: They shot you bubi
They shot you bubi

HIRAM: I am here, just hold my hand
BROTHER: Hiram, I think I understand
HIRAM: Now quietly, just talk to me
BROTHER: I’m glad that you are here with me
But it’s time I said “Goodbye”
I’m so cold, please hold me tight
I love you, so please let me go
One last thing you need to know- “I loved you so”

BAM!!! [Shot fired]

HIRAM: I shot you bubi
I shot you bubi
I shot you bubi
I shot you bubi
I shot you bubi…

BAM!!! [Silence]

Gestapo dogs heard in the distance…
