One-Take Demo Saturday (Day Late): Lied Von Edelweißpiraten


The Edelwiess Pirates were a group of kids in Nazi Germany who used to beat up Hitler Youth. They had this song, so I arranged it with toy instruments and did a quick recording.

Des Hitlers Zwang, der macht uns klein,
noch liegen wir in Ketten.
Doch einmal werden wir wieder frei,
wir werden die ketten schon brechen.
Denn unsere Fäuste, die sind hart,
ja—und die Messer sitzen los,
für die Freiheit der Jugend,
kämpfen Navajos.

Translation: Hitler’s dictates make us small,
we’re yet bound in chains.
But one day we’ll be free again,
we’ll break the chains.
Then our fists, that are hard,
yes–and our knives at our wrists,
for the freedom of youth,
Navajos fight.
