The Lyrics

As we approach St. Patrick's Day, my mind is whirling with random thoughts like this one. What is George M. Cohan had been German rather than Irish? ;D




Who is the man who's the son of the Fatherland?
Bogenshutz, jawohl!
Who is the Herr who will jump when you give command?
Bogenshutz, let's roll!
My people were once dreaded Goth and Hun,
And they even made Roman legions run.
Who has an accent the Irish can't understand?
Bogenshutz, you troll!

B-O-G-E-N-S-H-U-T-Z, Bogenshutz.
Proud of my ancestory Germanic.
Never a Frenchman who could make me panic.
B-O-G-E-N-S-H-U-T-Z, jah!
Shout it out - when about - 'cause there sure is no "grosser" Kraut(1).
Bogenshutz! Ha Ha!



Who is the man who can drink twice his weight in beer?
Bogenshutz, hot shot!
Who is the face of the race Europeans fear?
Bogenshutz, you snot!
Who's the best man for a mountain hike?
Who wears a helmet that has a spike?
When there's a fight who won't be hiding in the rear?
Bogenshutz, mein gott!

B-O-G-E-N-S-H-U-T-Z, Bogenshutz.
That's a name that shouldn't be forgotten.
Give me another plate of sauerbraten.
B-O-G-E-N-S-H-U-T-Z, whoa!
Yes I am. It's no scam. All my folks come from old Potsdam.
Bogenshutz, ach so!



(1) - "grosser" translates roughly as "greater" or "great". Perhaps I can spin this into a series...the music of Georg von Kohenz. ;D
