Spike Jones – Der Fuehrer's Face lyrics

When der fuehrer says we is de master race
We heil heil right in der fueher's face
Not to love der fuehrer is a great disgrace
So we heil heil right in der fuehrer's face

When Herr Goebbels says we own the world and space
We heil heil right in Herr Goebbels' face
When Herr Goring says they'll never bomb this place
We heil heil right in Herr Goring's face

Are we not he supermen Aryan pure supermen
Ja we are the supermen (super duper supermen)

Is this Nazi land so good
Would you leave it if you could
Ja this Nazi land is good
We would leave it if we could
We bring the world to order
Heil Hitler's world to order
Everyone of foreign race
Will love der fuehrer's face
When we bring to the world this order


Instrumental interlude

Chorus (slows down like a dying tape cassette on the last line)

    This was written and widely used later after the US got into WWII. we had to back our boys in uniform, just like we do today. It holds up as a great satirical song for many people who did not have televisions, some used their radios as a special treat. Many gathered around the piano and sang songs together, this was one that was printed and played around the piano at the time. This song is about rallying around our troops, to show how silly "der Fuehrer" was. Everyone should be pleased about the way our country rallied and still found comedy while people were dying for our values in the face of unspeakable horrors. Let us not forget the lessons we all should have learned, and also how everyone involved kept their humor.

    The lyrics of "Der Fuehrer's Face" should contain the "fart" sounding noise that is heard after every "heil" in the song. It sounds like someone sticking their tongue out and giving a "strawberry" or "fart-like-sound" that denotes a strong disrespect to the Nazi salute which had been raised to almost religious fervour (to their eternal shame) but the German people in the 1930's and early 1940s. The Nazi salute appears to have held a very strong association with the most fanatic displays national-faith, over-confidence, self-satisfing-superiority and extreme devotion to an ultimately wicked cause (world domination and the ultimate triumph of the so-called master-race). The Nazis appear to have tired to replace religious observance with militaristic nationalism of an extremely aggressive and domineering manner. The song ultimately pokes fun and mocks the "Heil" which propaganda had inflated into one of the most sacred displays of Nazi unity and strength. The "heil" (which appears to suggest the worship of a false-God in the form of der Fuehrer) had a so strong a popular following that decades later it still stirs strong emotions in supporters and fear in those oppressed by the Nazi objectives. The song warns that "we bring the world order" and everyone will "love der Fuehrer's face" - displaying the absurdity to Nazi goals.
