  • Bert told Brecht
    Brecht told Bert
    Words like birds flew right around the world
    Right around the world
    Right around the world
    Words flew right around the world

    Beware! Dont look away!
    Hear what the poet has to say
    Songs and rhymes for the worst of times
    Paper feeds the fire In the coldest winter
    Bert told Brecht
    Brecht told Bert
    Words like birds flew right around the world
    Right around the world
    Right around the world
    Words flew right around the world

    Wake up! Look around!
    The painter learnt to juggle like a clown
    Poet he shouts Til they chase him out
    Marching into exile with an old typewriter
    Bert told Brecht
    Brecht told Bert
    Words like birds flew right around the world
    Right around the world
    Right around the world
    Words flew right around the world

    Take care! Open up your eyes!
    Words can take you by surprise
    Poet he writes fights the best of fights
    Taking on the painter with a pen and paper...
    Bert told Brecht
    Brecht told Bert
    Words like birds flew right around the world
    Right around the world
    Right around the world
    Words flew right around the world.
