  • German puppets burned the Jews
    Jewish puppets did not choose
    Puppet vultures eat the dead
    Puppet corpses they are fed
    Puppet winds and puppet waves
    Puppet sailors in their graves
    Puppet flower, puppet stem
    Puppet time dismantles them
    Puppet me and puppet you
    Puppet German
    Puppet Jew

    Puppet Presidents command
    Puppet troops to burn the land
    Puppet fire, puppet flames
    Feed on all the puppet names
    Puppet lovers in their bliss
    Turn away from all of this
    Puppet reader shakes his head
    Takes his puppet wife to bed
    Puppet me and puppet you
    Puppet German, puppet Jew

    Puppet Presidents command
    Puppet troops to burn the land
    Puppet fire, puppet flames
    Feed on all the puppet names
    Puppet night comes down to play
    The after act to puppet day Writer/s: Adam Cohen, Leonard Cohen
