“Tell your mother, little Fritz How did you improve your with?” “All morning we threw hand grenades And I could throw the farthest. The teacher says that I will skip Because I study hardest. Then we took our geographies And looked at foreign powers. The teacher showed us all the land Which really should be ours. In history, the teacher proved We are the grratest nation. We are so great because we have No Nasal inclination. In poctry the new firl Kate Turned out a perfect error. She memorized “Die Lorolei” And didn’t see her error. We read ‘Kampf’ aloud so well, We left our teacher golwing. We finished with that pretty song, ‘When Jewish blood is flowing.'”
