Classic. When pr blames school for the indoctrination of liberals, I just have to laugh. This music got you in trouble to listen to at school, and it has had far more profound of effect on my political leanings than school, or even college, ever did. This is the music of my childhood, which explains alot... unfortunately...



A few more...























Sorry, alot longer than I meant, but once I started I just started to remember more and more...

Music is influential.  Just ask Plato.  This is why he would have given all your musicians, the hemlock treatment.

Well, Hydra, after watching that I am starting to get that Skyrim itch again. 
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

True, and just as American as ...



Lincoln understood that both sides were American, neither was to be demonized (as John Brown did).  The Damn Yankee and the Johnny Reb are both part of our heritage.  And neither are nice folks.  In the US Civil War there were no atheists in the trenches.  There were a few women on each side, serving while disguised as men ... and Blacks served on both sides.  Indians served on both sides in Indian Territory (Oklahoma).

This song is by Chad Mitchell Trio and appears on the album That's The Way It's Gonna Be (1965).
Wenn Sie durch Die Schöne Deutschland gehen
Einen gesang werde Sie Hören
Es gibt eine kleine Melodie in Deutschland
Fur fünfzehn oder Zwanzig Jahren

spoken:
As you travel through Die Schöne Deutschland
(Wenn Sie durch Die Schöne Deutschland gehen)
A melody will greet your ears
(Einen gesang werde Sie Hören)
It's a melody that's been around in Deutschland
(Es gibt eine kleine Melodie in Deutschland)
For fifteen to twenty years
(Fur fünfzehn oder Zwanzig Jahren)

Each and every German dances to the strain
Of the I was not a Nazi Polka
All without exception join in the refrain
Of the I was not a Nazi Polka

Goering was a crazy we wanted to deport
Sing the I was not a Nazi Polka
We all thought that Dachau was just a nice resort
Sing the I was not a Nazi Polka

The German is so cultured, he does not like to fight
The peaceful life is what he most enjoys
For years the German people were utterly convinced
I.G. Farben manufactured children's toys

I never shot a Luger or goosed a single step
Sing the I was not a Nazi Polka
Sing the I was not a Nazi Polka
Sing the I was not a Nazi Polka

- Was you not an SS guard?
- I was not an SS guard.
I was not a Nazi Polka
- Did you not love Ilsa Koch?
- I did not love Ilsa Koch.
I was not a Nazi Polka
- Did you not despise the Jews?
- I did not, some of my best friends...
I was not a Nazi Polka
- Did you not think Adolf great?
- I did not, Adolf who?
- Adolf who?
- Ja, Adolf who?
- Fritz, you're putting me on.
- Was bedeutet dieses 'putting me on'?
- Are you kidding me or something?
- Nein, I'm not kidding you. Adolf who?
- Adolf Hitler!
- Should I know him? Is he a folksinger?
- You don't remember?
- Nein, I don't remember him. Who was he?
- Well...

A little man, very mean, very loud and brash
- Mmm-mmm...
Not too tall, he never smiled, wore a black mustache
- Nein, I never heard...
He had a girl, Eva Braun, hair as red as flame
- Ah, ja, ja.
He papered walls for many years till his moment came
- Of course!

He's the one who clapped his hands, went into a dance
When the news came to him that we had conquered France
- That's him
He once said, when our flag proudly was unfurled,
"Today, Germany, tomorrow, the world! (Yeah!) Tomorrow, the world! (Yeah!) Tomorrow the world! (Yeah!) Tomorrow the world! (Yeah! Yeah!)"
- I never heard of him
- Neither did I

To our Israeli allies let us raise a toast
Sing the I was not a Nazi Polka
Sure there were some Nazis, two or three at most
Sing the I was not a Nazi Polka

We tried to throw off Hitler right from the very start
That's what every history book should tell
We hated Heinrich Himmler, Martin Bormann too
We believe as Sherman did that war is hell... hell... hell... hell...
Heil!.. Heil!.. Heil!.. Sieg heil!.. Sieg heil!.. Sieg heil!

Germans are as gentle as flowers in the spring
Sing the I was not a Nazi Polka
Germans are a people who love to dance and sing
Sing the I was not a Nazi Polka

spoken:
Wait a minute! Wait a minute! You there, you are not singing.
You do not like to sing? Tell me, you still have a family in Germany, nicht wahr? Sing!

Sing the I Was Not a Nazi Polka
Sieg heil!

Well, ALL ad songs are propaganda, but thanks a lot for the earworm.  I offer Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Happy Birthday in return.

You have a talent for satire (and I don't mean that negatively).  *I* wouldn't have thought of that.  LOL!
