Singalong: We’re Gonna Tear Hitler Down


Huddie William Ledbetter (Leadbelly), 1888-1949

Huddie William Ledbetter (Leadbelly), 1888-1949

My good friend Jonathan Mark posted this video clip on his website on the same day some mad mega-Haredim sprayed Yad Va’Shem with graffiti accusing Zionism of causing the Holocaust. It occurred to me that blues man Leadbelly, who recorded his Hitler tune in 1942, could teach those crazy folks a thing or two about history.

If you love Jews and Israel and, yes, that powerful 19th century invention known as political Zionism – do sing along with Ledbelly, and once and for all tear Hitler down…

Hiltler started out in nineteen hundred and thirty two(x2) When he started out, he took the homes from the Jews

We’re gonna tear Hitler down(x3) someday. We’re gonna bring him to the ground(x3) someday.

When Hitler started out, he took the Jews from their homes(x2) That’s one thing Mr. Hitler you know you done wrong.

We’re gonna tear Hitler down(x3) someday. We’re gonna bring him to the ground(x3) someday.

You ain’t no iron, you ain’t no solid rock(x2) but we American people say “Mr. Hitler is got to stop!”

We’re gonna tear Hitler down(x3) someday. We’re gonna bring him to the ground(x3) someday.

Mr. Hitler we’re gonna tear your playhouse down(x2) you been flyin’ mighty high, but you’re on your last go round.

We’re gonna tear Hitler down(x3) someday. We’re gonna bring him to the ground(x3) someday.

Mr. Hitler, you know you ain’t so keen(x2) But we American people say you’re the biggest liar they ever seen.

We’re gonna tear Hitler down(x3) someday.
We’re gonna bring him to the ground(x3) someday.

    Leadbelly tells it like it is. Nothin like the blues to get you up in the morning.
