We'll do the Tango
We'll try the Fox Trot
I'll eat a mango
You drink a straight scotch
You know I told you
You could be classy
So why did you have
To be so nasty?

Remember the curls
Of the Deutscher Girls?
A love of mine
From down on the Rhine

I'll fill your bath with
The finest champagne
I'll lick your skin dry
I cherish your name
The stakes get higher
As you dress sparsely
So why did you have
To be so nasty?

I love your blonde hair
I kiss your pigtails
And I could not share
The scratch of your nails
And though you mark me
Your eyes so glassy
Oh why did you have
To be so nasty?

    I just found out that the lyrics to this song used to be slightly different, it was "so why did you have to be so nazi? remember the curls of the dutscher girls, camp 49, down on the rhine" and Adam said it was about the film The Night Porter

    hope this helps someone x

    That is the sanitised version, below is the original, uncensored version. Deutscher Girls was inspired by the film The Night Porter.

    We'll do the tango We'll try the foxtrot I'll eat a mango You'll drink a straight scotch You know I told you You could be classy So why did you have to be so Nazi

    Remember the curls Of the Deutscher girls Camp 49 Way down on the Rhine

    I'll fill your bath with The finest champagne I'll lick your skin dry I cherish your name The stakes get higher As you dress sparsely So why did you have to be so Nazi

    Remember the curls Of the Deutscher girls Camp 49 Way down on the Rhine

    I love your blonde hair I kiss your pigtails And I could not share The scratch of your nails And though you mock me Your eyes so glassy Oh why did you have to be so Nazi

    I said remember the curls Of the Deutscher girls Camp 49 Way down on the Rhine
