The Lyrics

Ronald Reagan was advised to leave "tear down this wall" out of his speech in Berlin, but he left it in anyway. Gorbachev wouldn't tear it down, but the German people eventually did.
The Commies ain't no damn good
You can't trust 'em, you can't love 'em
They are the Evil Empire
And I don't mind saying their ways are wrong
I've had that pleasure for years and years
Now, now I never liked our detente - tell me what else can we do
And we're stuck with this Cold War 'til we learn to change this rules
They respect no persons, what they build up must fall
I told Gorbachev to just tear down this wall

Saw the pictures in the paper, read the news from East Berlin
The German people came 'round to smash the thing in

Then the wall came tumblin' down
Berlin Wall came crumblin', crumblin'
Berlin Wall come tumblin', tumblin' dooooowwwwn
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah

Some lefties say I'm a likeable dunce, and
That I'm uneducated and my opinion means nothin'
But I know I'm not just an actor
Don't need to look at Gorbachev to see what he's after
All this while we've had our detente - ain't no new news here
It's the same old trouble we've been having for years
I can see the problem with East Germany, 'cause it's easy to see
Just a human desire to set them all free

Want to put my arms away now, 'cause I don't need a fight
You can mock me and insult me, but I was proven right

When the wall came tumblin' down
Berlin Wall came crumblin', crumblin'
Berlin Wall came tumblin', tumblin'
Crumblin', tumblin' dooooowwwwn

When the wall came (tumblin' down)
Berlin Wall came (rumblin', rumblin')
Berlin Wall (Berlin Wall)
Come tumblin', tumblin' dooooowwwwn

Want to put our nukes away now, cause we don't need a fight
You can mock me and insult me, but I was proven right

When the walls came tumblin' down
Berlin Wall came crumblin', crumblin'
Berlin Wall came tumblin', tumblin' crumblin', tumblin'

When the wall (when the wall) came tumblin' down
Berlin Wall (Berlin Wall) came crumblin', crumblin'
Berlin Wall came tumblin', tumblin' crumblin', tumblin'
When the wall (when the wall) came tumblin' down
Berlin Wall came crumblin', crumblin'
Berlin Wall came tumblin', tumblin' crumblin', tumblin' doooowwwwn
