"Today Your Love, Tomorrow The World" as written by Joey Ramone, Dee Dee Ramone, Tommy Ramone and Johnny Ramone....
I'm a shock trooper in a stupor
Yes I am.
I'm a Nazi schatze
Why'know I fight for fatherland

I'm a shock trooper in a stupor
Yes I am.
I'm a Nazi schatze
Why'know I fight for fatherland

Little German boy
Being pushed around
Little German boy
In a German town

I'm a shock trooper in a stupor
Yes I am.
I'm a Nazi schatze
Why'know I fight for fatherland

I'm a shock trooper in a stupor
Yes I am.
I'm a Nazi schatze
Why'know I fight for fatherland

Little German boy
Being pushed around
Little German boy
In a German town

Today your love, tomorrow the world
Today your love, tomorrow the world
Today your love, tomorrow the world
Today your love, tomorrow the world
Today your love, tomorrow the world

    General CommentThis is a great song ... I think "Today your love, tomorrow the world" refers to Nazis and Germans being human, with feelings and hopes and dreams, instead of mindless killing machines, as the media of the US of A reperesents them to this day.

    General CommentI'l just like to point out the utter ignorance of the comment above me. Hitler did not encounter jews until he moved to vienna to study art. He was not pushed around by Jews growing up as a boy in a sleeply little Austrian town named braunau.

    Also, trying to pin a motive such as revenge to such a horrific and irrational event as the holocaust is not only misguided but also offensive. There was no rationale for the Nazi programme of genoicide other than in Hitler's sick mind he thought that Jews should not exist.

    Oh wait, your Joking. Anyway something's shouldn't be said i jest because ppl (like me for instance) will get the wrong impression.

    General CommentGreat song, I think Child of Music hit the nail on he head.

    BTW, the original lyrics instead of Shock trooper in a stupor, were "I'm a Nazi, Baby, I'm a Nazi, Yes I Am"

    General CommentWell, the phrase "Today Germany, Tomorrow the World!" was one of the Nazi party's rallying cries/slogans. Generally, people who are pushed around when they are a kid (no matter by whom), they can grow up with a chip on their shoulder. Many of these people join the police, the military, any position of authority where they can use force to get what they want. They learned to accept this type of behavior when they were on the recieving end. I doubt DeeDee was thinking it out this hard when they were in the basement sniffin' carbona and kicking out these jams, though. It probably *did* have something to do with pissing off his dad, or freaking out the mainstream in general.

    General Commentschatze mean treasure or something valuable. I think they only used that to ryme though. Many germans during the WW II era became nazi's only because they didn't wan tto be killed. Most didn't know why and didn't ask "why are we doing this?" Hitler did not seem like a bad guy at first. After WW I many people were left unemployed, and Hitler fixed all that. They basically brain washed people into doing what Hitler wanted them to do. So that explains the "Today your love" because he first won Germany over before doing all of the horrible things he did, and he had people to help him.

    General CommentSpringE your not completely wright. Schatze in in this content is best translated as "honey", "babe" or something like that. A female person is ment. (I know it i'm Swiss)
