Joseph, Oh Joseph, I Feel So Ill

(The New OWC Hit (On the Cover)

Joseph, oh Joseph, I feel so ill,
Spoke Hermann Göring recently
To Joseph Goebbels on a bench.
I feel terribly depressed,
For I know for sure,
That Germany is losing this war,
And it‘s going awry for us.

Chorus:
The prospect vanished, we are at the end,
The German land destroyed and burning,
I am at the end of my strength,
And trembling before the accountability.

Hermann, oh Hermann, you are absolutely right,
I know the defeat is coming, and that‘s why I feel sick.
We are stretching as best as we can
This war today,
But it will end sooner or later,
With our enemies‘ victory.

Chorus:

Joseph, oh Joseph, you are so clever,
And that‘s why I ask you to tell me exactly,
How our future looks
Because I feel wretched about it,
Emmy is already saying her bedtime prayer,
Joseph, understand this.

Chorus:

Hermann, oh Hermann, the future is grey,
For Adolf, you, and me, and also for Emmy, your wife.
And for those who supported us, it‘s going badly,
For they will be eradicated,
As much as one would like to turn back,
They will be executed.

Chorus:

Joseph and Hermann, they feel unwell,
And today the NSDAP feels bad along with them.
The mood and spirit are cloudy,
One is half-crazed with fear,
We still sing the Horst Wessel song,
But today we sing it in a minor key.

Chorus:

The prospect vanished, they are at the end,
The German land destroyed and burning,
They are at the end of their strength,
And trembling before the accountability.
