Belsen was a gas I heard the other day
D              C              G
In the open graves where the jews all lay
D        C         D             Eb
Life is fun and I wish you were here
D                 C          G
They wrote on postcards to those held dear

chorus  (played twice)
C   G    C   G  C    G    F-G   F-G

Sergeant majors on the march
Wash their bodies in the starch
See them all die one by one
Guess it's dead guess it's glad

verse

In the open graves where the jews all lay

second verse
Dentists search their teeth for gold
Frisk the jews for bank notes rolled
when they found out what they got
Line them up and shoot the lot

chorus
kill a man be a man kill a man

intro

third verse
Wonder what the jews would say
If I told them where Boorman was today
Would they start a vendetta
you'd better ask Ernie Ledbetter

chorus
Ledbetter Ledbetter Ledbetter

outro:  ad lib chorus


                             -I'm here, I'm queer, I play 5-string bass
