Round and Round Hitler's Grave
Words by Pete Seeger, Millard Lampell, & Woody Guthrie

Now I wished I had a bushel
Wished I had a peck
Wished I had old Hitler
With a rope around his neck.
 
Hey, round, round Hitler's grave
Round, round we go
Gonna lay that poor boy down
He won't get up no more.
 
Mussolini won't last long
Tell you the reason why
We're a-gonna salt his beef
And hang it up to dry.
 
The German army general staff
I guess they missed connection
Went a hundred miles a day
But in the wrong direction.
 
I'm a-goin' to Berlin
To Mister Hitler's town
I'm gonna take my forty-four
And blow his playhouse down.
 
How Hitler went to Russia
In search of Russian oil
But the only oil he'll find there
Is a pot in which he'll boil.
 
Now Mister Hitler's traveling mighty fast
But he's on a one-way track
Started down that Moscow road
But now he's coming back.
