They said: "Is this man a jew?"

('Cos working for the clampdown)

(For working for the clampdown)

Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong!

(Working for the clampdown)

Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong!

(Working for the clampdown)

I'm working hard in Harrisberg

Working hard in Petersberg

(Working for the clampdown)

(Working for the clampdown)

Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong!

Begging to be melted down!

Gitalong, Gitalong
