The popular band Spike Jones and His City Slickers, noted for their parodies of popular songs of the time, released a version of Oliver Wallace’s theme song, “Der Fuehrer’s Face” (also known informally as “The Nazi Song”). Unlike the version in the cartoon, some Spike Jones versions contain the rude sound effect of an instrument he called the “birdaphone”, a rubber razzer (aka the Bronx Cheer) with each “HEIL!” to show contempt for Hitler.

When der Fuehrer says, “We ist der master race”
We HEIL! (phhht!) HEIL! (phhht!) Right in der Fuehrer’s face
Not to love Der Fuehrer is a great disgrace
So we HEIL! (phhht!) HEIL! (phhht!) Right in der Fuehrer’s face
When Herr Göbbels says, “We own der world und space”
We HEIL! (phhht!) HEIL! (phhht!) Right in Herr Göbbel’s face
When Herr Göring says they’ll never bomb this place
We HEIL! (phhht!) HEIL! (phhht!) Right in Herr Göring’s face

Are we not the supermen
Aryan pure supermen
Ja we ist der supermen
Super-duper supermen.

Ist this Nutzi land not good?
Would you leave it if you could?
Ja this Nutzi land is good!
Vee would leave it if we could

We bring the world to order
Heil Hitler’s world to order
Everyone of foreign race will love der Fuehrer’s face
When we bring to der world disorder

When der Fuehrer says, “We ist der master race”
We HEIL! (phhht!) HEIL! (phhht!) Right in der Fuehrer’s face
Not to love the Fuehrer is a great disgrace so
We HEIL! (phhht!) HEIL! (phhht!) Right in der Fuhrer’s face

When der Fuehrer says, “We ist der master race”
We HEIL! (phhht!) HEIL! (phhht!) Right in der Fuehrer’s face
Not to love the Fuehrer is a great disgrace so
We HEIL! (phhht!) HEIL! (phhht!) Right in der Fuhrer’s face

* According to an obscure poet of the 1970s, Nazism is a subset of existentialism.
