Nicholas invited me to visit at the farm
We were playing in the yard,
I saw them in the barn
White and black together sat
I just stood and stared
How was I to know what it all meant?

Mr. Goldreich and his wife were generous to me
David in blue overalls came in to serve the tea
I had seen him in the barn, something wasn’t right
As I told my father late that night

So they came in a dry-cleaning van and they took them away, took them away
One dog and a dozen strong men and they took them away, took them away
On that Thursday according to plan
They took them away in a dry-cleaning van
I stood and watched by the side of the road
How could I know?
How could I know?

How was I to understand?
How to make it right?
As I ask our father every night

So they came in a dry-cleaning van and they took them away, took them away
One dog and a dozen strong men and they took them away, took them away
On that Thursday according to plan
They took them away in a dry-cleaning van
I stood and watched by the side of the road
How could I know?
How could I know?
