The Lyrics

You don't *have* to be Adolf to sing along to this song...but it helps!

A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here.
There’s me and Eva left alive
In Nineteen Hundred and Forty-Five
We’re bunker-doomed
Was Rudolf right? When Hess went fly’n?
In jail was shoved, all despite his line
The Reich was screwed…

D…as schwein! schwein!
Well the Allies had enough of swastikas
My little Axis gets maligned
Strafin’! Berlin is quakin’!

(Musical interlude - picture Leni Riefenstahl-styled victory marches - for now…)

Goering always said the time would come
When Heinkels weren’t enough: “They’re far too crude”
Said Herman Hesse: “It’s all a mess”
And Goebbels slinked around whilst say’n: “Shiza, dudes!”

Oh..oh Heil! Oh..oh Hell!
Well, A-dolf can’t get it up but that’s enough
Of that (my Eva - makes her cry…)

Ol’ Heinrich tried to bomb my life
Pre-Nineteen Hundred and Forty-Five
Vindictive ‘tude!
Well, the Russian Front, the British pride,
The Yanks in tanks ‘gainst us all conspired
So I conclude

It’s time - cy-a-nide
Well those capsules are the stuff when things get tough
The biggest mess, I’ve left behind…

(Musical epilogue - picture years of destruction and misery)

Yeah, when it was all over I believe if it were a baseball game it would have been a no "Hit"ler. Great parody.

What would TV, movies, books, etc. have done for material without this guy? ... not that we'd miss him.
Wonder if Hitler's daily injections of methamphetamine (soooo ahead of his time! ;) drove him off the deep end, leading to the mistakes that ... always the "what if?"
    Great history job, but why does no one ever do Stalin, surely the largest mass-murderer in history, whose purges killed 5x as many of his own countrymen as this "amateur"?

I was never into 'Wings' much so was unfamiliar with OS. Quite a catchy number; the heavy backing worked well with sub. Well done, as usual. Btw, I had same result as Stan with the link, but tracked it down on YT. Must explore your homepage some time.

Wondering why you spelled 'sheizer' that way (don't know if mine's correct either)? Also Hermann Hesse (the novelist?). Did you mean Rudolf Hess, the Deputy Fuhrer? Possibly confused with Hermann Goering? Hermann Hesse resided in Switzerland during the war years and wisely tried to stay the hell out of it. Didn't stop his books being banned though.

The main operative in the bomb plot was Claus von Stauffenberg, a martyred hero if ever there was one. The number of lives that could have been saved by a coup at that stage of the war is inestimable, possibly in the hundreds of thousands, not counting the 5000 or so undercover resistance operatives who were executed in the aftermath, essentially destroying the anti-Nazi movement.

@Tommy About Stalin, comin' right back atcha tomorrow and thanks for the great idea. One of those serendipitous matches - it took me all of 30 minutes to nail it, so that should be a good sign.

TT: If he didn't exist the Hitler Channel wouldn't exist!

By the way, we have done a parody where both Stalin and Hitler get a mention in the first verse.

Also starring are Henry VIII, Mao, Mussolini, Marcos (both of them), Tito, Franco, Saddam, Noriega, Idi (need I go on? OK!), Galtieri, L'il Polly Pot, Castro, Ho Chi Minh, Mugabe, Peron.

There's a collection of dickheads for you. All in the one parody!

LL: Thanks! I agree about the song's backing matching the parody, that's one of the reasons why I like this one so much.

Regarding Rudloph/Hermann, mein got!!!! How embarrassing :(
Tommy Turtle - September 11, 2012 - Report this comment
Peregrin, will check it out later, probably when here for LL's Stalinody.

Lifeliver: Always happy to inspire another author! Looking forward to it, and yes, the 30-min. nail time is an excellent omen. Expecting perfect Xxx's, of course! ;-D

Thomas! That's not an apostrophe I see in a plural, is it? Mein got, again :)
Tutor Turtle - September 12, 2012 - Report this comment
It is permitted to apostrophize when the noun in question is only a letter or letters:

"I got straight As on my report card" -- "As in what?" (LOL)
"Xxxs" could have some other meaning also.
Agree that in some all-cap cases, not necessary. "I know my ABCs" is pretty clear, but "I know my abcs" -- ??
  Apostrophe serves to remove ambiguity. (Don't take my word for it; look it up! ;)

Psssst! Tommy! I won't tell him it's mein Gott if you don't... ;)

Pip and I are reasonably good grammarians, but sloppy at proofreading. I always assume he is doing it and he always assumes I am doing it, and even when we both do it, things get by us. I know my brain is such a jumble of esoteric info at times that I don't always pay attention to how things are actually spelled; ie: Hess/Hesse - I just know 'em to hear 'em. (I owned a copy of Steppenwolf, but I never read it. I bet John Kay didn't either... ) ;)

Did you not notice that TT in fact graciously overlooked that Deutschefehlermachen, unlike the ungracious Peregrin, who criticized his favorable commenter? ;-D ;)

I was gonna enter a debate about the redundancy of 'postrophes prior to the S and following proper acronyms, but the very fact that I would have been entering a debate about it made me decide not to enter a debate about it! :)
TT - September 14, 2012 - Report this comment
Peregrin: Good choice. The examples given, "A" and "Xxx" were not acronyms. :wink:
Peregrin - September 14, 2012 - Report this comment
Double wink back, hence my carefully chosen words 'proper acronyms' :)
