The Lyrics

Thought I'd try one of Dylan's themes!
We've been fighting
It's all that we do
Still hoping that a shipment comes through
But we're still waiting
Ju-52s drop not a lot
Temp is dropping, unending snow
In Russia -55o below
Living in this ice cold hell
Hands are frozen enough
There's something the F├╝hrer forgot...

What about gloves?
Leather, insulated, two
What about gloves?
For our Heer fighting troops
What about gloves?
For Fallschirmjaeger and SS troops
Gunners got mittens for the MG-42!!!

Tell the Gauletiers to do more drives
Without gloves we can't survive
Need our hands and fingers to shoot
To kill the Red swine
Common sense for this dread cold outside!

German troops killed on Ostfront 4 out of 5!

(Chorus) [x2]
Note: the Gestapo and Allgemeine SS ALWAYS had leather gloves wherever they went. Besides the Heer and Waffen SS, the Luftwaffe pilots and Paras, as well as Kriegsmarine U-boat commanders were issued gloves! At Dachau, human skin gloves were also made. Skin taken from the backs and chests were treated with chemicals and then left to dry out. After that were fashioned into handbags, purses, and other things like gloves. The gloves were then dyed and insulated.

Glad to see my gloveliness is catching on! Here's 555 leather gloves for you! P.S., I promise I'll get to "Glove Serenade" tomorrow!

Thanks Dylan! Another one might be Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love." I may do Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do!"
