Hot Time In The Old Town Of Berlin

Writer(s): John DeVries / Joe Bushkin
(from the CD Portraits From The Past)

There’ll be a hot time in the town of Berlin
When the Yanks go marchin’ in.
I’d like to be there boy, and spread some joy
When they take old Berlin.
There’ll be a hot time in the town of Berlin
When the Brooklyn boys begin
To take the joint apart and tear it down
When they take old Berlin.
They’re gonna start a row and show them how
We paint the town back in Kokomo.
They’re gonna take a hike through Hitler’s Reich
And change his ‘Heil’ to ‘What ya know, Joe’
There’ll be a hot time in the town of Berlin
When the Yanks go marchin’ in
You could never keep ’em happy down on the farm
After they take Berlin.
[instrumental interlude]
They’re gonna start a row and show them how
We paint the town back in Michigan
They’re gonna take a hike through Hitler’s Reich
And change his ‘Heil’ to ‘Gimme some skin’
There’ll be a hot time in the town of Berlin
When the Yanks go marchin’ in.
You know that you could never keep ’em happy down on the farm
After they take Berlin
