Original Song Title:
"The Girl I Left Behind Me"
Parody Song Title:
"A Joke My Song Reminds Me"
In Germany in forty-five
The Mark was worthless paper
And every woman lived in fear
Some Bolshevik would rape her
Business had come to a halt
When the armies stopped their shooting
There was no cash, there were no jobs
And not much left worth looting
A G.I. heard somebody ask,
"Give me a Zigarette".
He didn't know that from his gift
Things would start getting better
The man who bummed the cigarette
Soon looked around to spend it
He had a hole in his jackboot's sole
"I'll give you this to mend it".
The cobbler's roof began to leak
He had no means to fix it
But a cigarette to a carpenter
Well, it just might be the ticket
The carpenter, his work complete
Sought out a local farmer
"My daughter needs some food to eat,
Starvation's sure to harm her".
He showed the precious cigarette
And a deal was quick arranging
And for some bread and for some cheese
The "coffin nail" exchanging
And so it went around the town
The economy reviving
The burghers bought, the burghers sold
While at their trades were striving
A cycle of prosperity
Until some yahoo broke it
This fool obtained the cigarette
Then he lit a match to smoke it
