They All Died Singing

lyrics

Break out the champers and strike up the band,we may not see out the year,
I’d rather take up my banjo or take to the stage, rather than trembling in fear.

They went down happy, so happy, that’s how they all died, back in Berlin the last time.
They went down singing, yes singing, that’s how they all died:
With their voices all raised in song.

Now everybody says you must not fear, then everybody says your end is near.
Then everybody says this man’s sincere, then everyone says he’s a racketeer.
Then everybody says this fiscal year, you’re gonna have to find a new career.
Then everybody says you must be of good cheer.

Then everyone says shift it up a gear, then everybody says it’s too severe.
Then everyone votes not to interfere, then argues over what to commandeer.
Then everybody blames the auctioneer, when no one bid ‘cause the reserve’s too dear.
Then everybody says there are no problems here. But I say:

Break out the schnapps and let's strike up the band, we may not see out the year,
I’d rather take up my top hat or take to the stage, rather than living in fear.

We’ll go down happy, so happy, that’s how we’ll all die, just like they did the last time.
We’ll go down singing, yes singing, that’s how we’ll all die:
With our voices all raised in song.

We'll all die singing, yes singing, that's how we'll all die:
With our voices all raised in song.
