The Lyrics

You're not so smart, Robert Arndt.
Her name was Eva, she was a model
With Aryan features and blond hair and taste in clothes beyond compare
She would mazurka and dance the polka
And while she entertained the men, Albert always cutted in
Burning up the floor, the S.S. begged for more
They were posin' in their lederhosen
That's what they wore.

At the Burghof in Berchtesgaden
The coolest spot high in the mountains
At the Burghof in Berchtesgaden
Prancin' and goose step was always a new step
At the Burghof - high up above.

His name was Adolf, he wore a moustache
As he got back from his Wolf's Lair he saw Eva dancin' there
As they were waltzing he swaggered over
And with his magic dancing feet he was farting to the beat
And then the air grew rank, and the whole Burghof stank
And then the men all fell into a swoon
As they danced alone.

At the Burghof in Berchtesgaden
The grooviest hangout in Deutschland
At the Burghof in Berchtesgaden
Rooms full of champagne, no reason to complain
At the Burghof - they fell in love.

(Burghof, in Berchtesgaden)
(Burghof in Berchtesgaden) (In Berchtesgaden - blah, blah, blah, blah)
(Ya never pay attention to me, ya big dictator!)
(Talking Teutonic, so cacophonic)
(Music and champagne - no need to complain)

His name was Adolf, he was the Fuehrer
That was a long time in the past when he thought the Reich would last
Now he's with Eva, they're in Valhalla
In the Burghof in the sky, many virgins standing by
Myrads of pretty maids - would heroes go unpaid?
They're no longer mortals now they're in their glory
Valhalla instead.

Now there's no Burghof in Berchtesgaden
A quiet spot high on the mountain
No more Burghof in Berchtesgaden
Music and passion no longer the fashion
On the mountain - no one's in love.

Got in a remark about Hitler's alleged flatulence. Don't know that I've ever seen a picture of Hitler dancing (other than that doctored film clip at Compiègne after the French surrender). I tune in each day to learn more about the Third Reich. Maybe you can settle the question as to der Führer's sexual orientation.

Patrick, Eva stated that Hitler's sex life was so ordinary that it was actually boring. Ad for the range of other sexual myths involving his neice, golden showers, etc... the vilification of Hitler is not needed, although the British and French went a long way with the French prostitute in WW1/STD propaganda!!! BTW, Hitler was so busy before he hunkered down in the bunker, that WHEN would he have any time for all that nonsense? He probably spent more time playing with Blondi than having sex with Eva!!!

Thanks, Rob and Patrick. I read The Lost Life of Eva Braun which was based on research of her personal life. Hitler wasn't gay, but he had affairs with other women including his niece - but not Richard Wagner's daughter in law. He really didn't care for Eva and if he chose to marry he might have married Magda Goebbels - anything for the Fuehrer. Eva and Albert Speer were close friends. Hitler's flatulance has become a well known historical fact.

I specialize in the Third Reich and have read ahuge library of books- thousands of them on all aspects. Hitler could NOT marry Eva at any time except for their death day b/c he was perceived by the German Volk (especially German women) as a Messiah and therefore was married to the nation, not any one woman. I find that the photographic record from his own official book of 1936 Adolf Hitler-His life in Pictures, endorsed by the NSDAP shows the Fuhrer always busy and surrounded by either the Volk or Nazi leadership, on occcasions with the Wehrmacht too and his dog Blondi. Eva was left out of the picture for the most part, smoked, wore make-up that Hitler objected too and enjoyed "vulgar" music. That he married her at all out of a sense of distorted loyalty is amazing. Of course, Magda Goebbels worshipped Hitler and died for Him at the bunker. He had a vile affection for his neice but I do not think she was murdered... too much conspiracy theory and not enough evidence.

In the movie "Downfall" Magda Goebbels is depicted as far more fanatical than Eva Braun. Magda couldn't stand the thought of life without Hitler. Eva picked out a cyanide capsule as though she were picking out a new pair of shoes. I've heard rumors over the years that Hitler may have fathered a son with a French woman during WWI. What is your take on that? A lot of the SA men, including Ernst Röhm, Hitler's mentor, were homosexual, which may have given the Allies an entree for propaganda purposes. I once asked a Jewish lady who fled from Germany before the war about all the cheering crowds and she said that while these were, of course, scheduled and organized events, the people turned out of their own free will and with genuine affection. The events were staged, but the expressions of love for the Führer were not.

Liked this one - but for some reason it read one of my '4' votes as a '3'. not sure how that happened, it was absolutely definitely in the the '4' button.... still, clever parody and a very entertaining history lesson :^)

Thanks, Wendy. That wasn't meant to be a history lesson - just entertainment for Herr Arndt. Glad you enjoyed.

Thanks, NorCal. I will have to write a parody about him, but you just made me think of Brangelina.
