Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man Comes singing songs of love
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang
Here comes the roly poly man and he's singing songs of love
Roly poly, roly poly, roly poly, poly he sang
What is all this 'hurdy gurdy' and 'roly poly' nonsense and what's the point of it?!

You can just sit there, thinking, on your velvet throne,
'Bout all the rainbows you can have for your own,
When you make your mind up forever to be mine.

First there is a mountain,
then there is no mountain,
then there is
Then you think there was but you're not quite sure? Oh make up your mind! Was it there or not?

But without him
how could Hitler have condemned them at Labau
The correct place name, as the writer Buffy Sainte-Marie sings it, is Dachau. I can't find any place called Labau that has anything to do with HItler.
