The Day The Nazi Died — Chumbawamba

[youtube ljQ2DM8Mve4] We’re taught that after the war
The Nazis van­ished with­out a trace
But bat­tal­ions of fascists
Still dream of a mas­ter race

The his­to­ry books
They tell of their defeat in 45
Why did they all come out of the woodwork
On the day the Nazi died

They say the pris­on­er of Spandau
Was a sym­bol of defeat
Whilst Hess remained imprisoned
Then the fas­cists they were beat

So the promise of an Aryan world
Would nev­er materialize
So why did they all come out of the woodwork
On the day the Nazi died

The world is rid­den by maggots
The mag­gots are get­ting fat
They’re mak­ing a tasty meal
Of all the boss­es and bureaucrats

They’re tak­ing over the board rooms
And they’re fat and full of pride
And they all came out of the woodwork
On the day the Nazi died

So if you meet with these historians
I’ll tell you what to say
Tell them that the Nazis
Nev­er real­ly went away

They’re out there burn­ing hous­es down
And they’re ped­dling racist lies
And we’ll nev­er rest again
Until every Nazi dies
