The Lyrics

Ordinarily, I don't like to make fun of people's deaths, but for this punk, I'll make an exception. See, today (April 30) is the anniversary of Adolf Hitler's death. Enjoy the parody!
Adolf Hitler was born in Austria,
He dropped out of school and went to Germany.
Joined the army, fought in World War I,
Couldn’t buy a thing with her money. [1]

And he kept on lookin’ for some folks he thought would think alike,
So he stepped up to the mic,
Yeah, he stepped up to the mic.
He kept on lookin’ for a way to kill those that he disliked,
Couldn’t get a Reich,
He couldn’t get a Reich.

Josef Stalin made him feel all right,
But der Führer tried to get the best of him.
Broke the Pact, lookin’ for a fight, [2]
But he soon found that his chance was so slim.

And he kept on lookin’ for some folks he thought would think alike,
So he stepped up to the mic,
Yeah, he stepped up to the mic.
He kept on lookin’ for a way to kill those that he disliked,
Couldn’t get a Reich,
He couldn’t get a Reich.

[guitar/sax solo]

Eisenhower, Montgomery, de Gaulle, [3]
Pushed at Hitler from all sides in France.
Hitler knew the war was all but lost,
So he took a gun and never had a chance.

He kept on lookin’ for some folks he thought would think alike,
So he stepped up to the mic,
Yeah, he stepped up to the mic.
He kept on lookin’ for a way to kill those that he disliked,
Couldn’t get a Reich,
He couldn’t get a Reich.

[repeat until fade, like an old soldier[4]]
NOTES:

1-Germany was so bankrupt after WWI that its money was practically worthless.
2-The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact was a non-aggression pact made by the USSR and Nazi Germany.
3-General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery and General Charles de Gaulle.
4-Refers to General Douglas MacArthur's saying "old soldiers never die; they just fade away."

Let's hope history does not repeat itself TOO MUCH.
