Misplaced Youth

March 2, 2012

I should have known
They were bad news
With their German heir
And cheap parted hair
All their Fühler talk
And foolish goose walk

Oh I should have known
They were bad to the bone
With their wunderbar
And that terrible scar
The swastika on hand
Their iron fists in the sand

Oh how could I not see
Their demons weren’t for me
Water board or not
Wouldn’t talk if they got caught
Their playground secrets tight
Bounded by third reich

Damn it! I should have seen it
They really did mean it
With their deadly void eyes
Cheap gimmicks and fake alibis
Their photos in the news
For killing those poor Jews

Oh how is it I didn’t know
They were lower than low
I guess I was just a boy
Thought myself rather coy
Not for their German way
But I did want to play

If only I had known
I could have picked up the phone
Called in their evil plot
Surely they’d be caught
With those foolish mustaches
And they’d get all their lashes

But I was but a boy
And was really not so coy
So they committed their crime
And now are serving time
If only I had known.
If only I had known.
