One man's tears stain the pillow Where he used to lay his head She's left him for another man So how come they're both sleeping in his bed? He can hardly sleep for misery You can hear him catch his breath And he grinds his teeth into the night And God says "Hey, Adolf, are you alright?"
One boy's tears stain the paper Where he writes his Christmas list And he inks in broken German "I wanna be a fine artist" Then he wipes out half a continent With one flick of his wrist He's so lonely, so misunderstanding As he pulls his blanket across the landing
You can hear them falling every day (Hitler's tears) Just open up the newspaper (Hitler's tears) You can hide, there's no escape from Hitler's tears-- Just what makes the fÃ¼hrer blue? He's crying for you
One man's tears--he was a fascist Before it was cool 'Cos now it's so expected Just accept it that power is cruel So he'll apply for reinstatement By new reincarnation rules 'Cos he's the only man, most certainly Who could claim to have lerned from history
Hitler cries himself to sleep, alone in Brazil, no-one calls How must it feel to be the biggest loser of them all?
One man's tears--saltwater salutes the final trip A thousand naughty Nazis A fraÃ¼lein with a bullwhip A lullaby of Über Alles A shaking upper lip It's all become a Whitehall farce That's how we tear our fears apart But you shouldn't take it straight to heart So the rest of us can get some sleep tonight
