"The Eggs of Satan" as written by and Daniel Carey Adam Jones....
Half a cup of powdered sugar
One quarter teaspoon salt
One knifetip Turkish hash
Half pound of butter
One teaspoon of Vanilla-sugar
Half pound flour
150g ground nuts
A little extra powdered sugar
.......and no eggs
PLace in a bowl
Add butter
Add the ground nuts and
Knead the dough

Form eyeball sized pieces from the dough
Roll in the powdered sugar
and say the magic words:
" Sim Sala Bim Bamba Sala Do Saladim"

Place on a baking pan and
bake at 200 degrees for 15 minutes
.......AND NO EGGS

Bake at 200 degrees for 15 minutes
......and no eggs

    General CommentThis song actually does have meaning, but it has nothing to do with worshiping Father Satan, or being a Nazi. In fact it is mocking Adolf Hitler, but also proving a very important fact.

    Before the Hitler was elected (yes he was voted into office) the Nazi's would host big political rallies. People then were poor, because the country was devastated from World War One, and most of the country was unemployed and very poor.

    The Nazi's would go up to a group of people standing outside or something, and they would do something like this.

    Nazi: "Hey, would you like to make some money?"

    Person: "Sure!"

    Nazi: "Alright, we want you to wear this uniform, and pass out these fliers. Do that and we'll pay you. Oh, and we're having this big political rally Friday why don't you come down. We'll have food and a live band, oh and we're having a speaker as well."

    Person: "Alright, can I bring my wife?"

    Nazi: "Sure, bring your wife, kids. We'll feed them all, and you can listen to music, and our speaker, and we might give you some clothes too. And why not tell all your friends about it as well."

    Person: "Alright thanks!"

    And then they would be on there way. The Nazi's would have lots of food, and they'd sometimes give out clothes and they'd have a big band. They would also have people in the audience that were paid to cheer out at certain times in the speaker's speech. You'd get so caught up in the atmosphere of the event that you really wouldn't listen to what the speaker was talking about, but along with it because it sounded cool, and other people were getting into it.

    The point of this song is to demonstrate that. If you don't speak German this song sounds really cool, and meaningful. But if you speak German, or translate it to English (Or what ever language you speak) it's really just a recipe.

    It demonstrates that people will go along with anything if it's dressed up enough, and the right way.
