They taught that after the war
The Nazis vanished without a trace,
But battalions of fascists
Still dream of a master race.
The history books, they tell
Of their defeat in ’45,
But they all came out of the woodwork
On the day the Nazi died.

They said the pris’ner of Spandau
Was a symbol of defeat;
Whilst Hesse remained in prison,
Then the fascists, they were beat.
So, the promise of an Aryan world
Would never materialize.
So, why did they all come out of the woodwork
On the day the Nazi died?

The world is riddled with maggots.
The maggots are getting fat.
They’re making a tasty meal
Of all the bosses and bureaucrats.
They’re taking over the boardrooms,
And they’re fat and full of pride.
And they all came out of the woodwork
On the day the Nazi died.

So, if you meet with these historians,
I’ll tell you what to say:
Tell them that the Nazis
Never really went away.
They’re out there burning houses down
And peddling racist lies.
And we’ll never rest again
Until every Nazi dies.
