We're told that after the war
The Nazis vanished without a trace,
But the Italians are facists
Still dream of a master race

The history books they tell
Of their defeat in '45,
But they all came out of the woodwork
On the day the Nazi died

They say the prisoner of Spandau
Was a symbol of defeat,
Whilst Hess remained in prision
And the facists; they where beat

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

The world is riddled with maggots
The maggots are getting fat,
They're making a tasty meal
Of all the bosses and bureaucrats

They're taking over the boardrooms
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 peddling racist lies,

And we'll never rest again;
Until every Nazi dies.

    General CommentI like this song allot. Chumbawamba certainly don't beat about the bush, which is why i like them so much. In this song they use a catchy tune and harmonizing singing, which gives it a nice effect.

    Nice:D

    General CommentShouldn't that be:
    "But *battalians* of fascists"

    And I think the song is actually titled 'The Day The Nazi Died'
