The Lyrics

Twice a curtain’s torn (twice)
This guy[1] will grouse, forlorn
’cause his true mission’s known.
They will dog him till he’s home.
With galfriend[2] he will roam.
Iron Curtain’s torn.

He’s a killer of a toad—
He gassed the Stasi ass till Tod[3]
So there he cannot stay. . .
Got to get away.
He and his gal take bus ride;
Object is the West side.
Killin’ him’s the mode.

Girl at first don’t love her man
But then grows to love the man
When she understands
Just what is the plan.
Now she on him depends
Again, they’re best of friends.
Got another plan


“Fire” cry is born,
“Fire” cry is borne—
The crowded house astorm,
So he and the girl roam.
Looks like they won’t make it home
When gats spit lead and drone. . .
Fine they are, the norm.

Twice a curtain’s torn:
Iron Curtain’s torn
“Fire!” then crowd storm
Lyceum scrim’s torn.

[1]Paul Newman
[2]Julie Andrews
