The Lyrics

This is again Berlin, 1945, Post VE-Day in the Soviet Zone of Occupation. This is what Blonde Valkyrie probably would have remembered. The term "Better Dead than Red" did NOT originate from the US in the Cold War but from Nazi Germany- from Goebbels Propaganda Ministry "Radio Werwolf" in 1945. The Werwolfen would have remembered that and in this story, which is true, the revenge is for the rape of Berlin by the Red Army. Blonde Valkyrie killed many Red soldiers for this and died for her actions. I was going to use the term Red monsters, but changed it to Red rapists for clarity. I also dropped Marley's style of talkin' as she is German.
Hurry, death is com-ing, 'cause the Red rapists are going to die tonight
Saying: “Hurry, death is com-ing, 'cause the Red rapists are going to die tonight!”

Rose up this morning; armed with a VG gun
Four little words in her mind are etched
Saying strong words of blood revenge against you; saying,
"Besser Tot als Rot, Meine Ehre heisst Treue”
(“Better Dead than Red, My Honor is Loyalty.")

Saying: “Hurry, death is com-ing, 'cause the Red rapists are going to die tonight!”
Hoping: “Hurry, death is com-ing, 'cause the Red rapists are going to die tonight!”

Rose up this mornin'; armed with a VG gun
Four little words in her mind are etched
Saying strong words of blood revenge against you; saying,
"Besser Tot als Rot, Meine Ehre heisst Treue”
(“Better Dead than Red, My Honor is Loyalty.")

Meaning: “Hurry, death is com-ing, death is coming,
Oh! The Red rapists are going to die tonight!”
Saying: “Hurry, death is com-ing" - It is coming,
‘cause the Red rapists are going to die tonight!”

Meaning: “Hurry, death is com-ing , ‘cause the Red rapists are
going to die tonight!”- It is coming!
“Hurry, death is com-ing, 'cause the Red rapists are going to die tonight!”

(Mutti) Don’t worry about a thing,
'cause the Red rapists are going to die tonight!
I strongly recommend the DVD "A Woman in Berlin" which shows the rape of Berlin: http://i2.indiewire.com/images/uploads/i/061509_womaninberlin_main.jpg

Sorry I am late commenting Rob, the internal hard drive on my computer went down, and I still have not got it working, and I have lost access to a great deal of files, and I have to now run off of an external hard drive. But anyway, nice parody, I like the blonde Valkyrie parodies 5's! :-)
