Send Them Back

It’s 1939 and the boats are coming
But we can’t have them here, that much at least is clear
Our economy is poor, we can’t just open up the door
We’ve got problems of our own, they should just leave us alone
And they’re a tribalistic race, they keep a separate space
They don’t really integrate, they’ll be a burden on the state
Watch before it is too late

It’s 1939 and the boats are coming
But if we let them land and acquiesce to their demands
We’ll soon be overrun, our Christian country will be done
They should just take the tram closer by to Amsterdam
Keep their problems in the region, this invading legion
Enemies within our ranks with names like Rosenberg and Frank
Watch that water that you drank

It’s 1939 and the boats are coming
But they must stay away, in the newspapers they say
They don’t believe in Christ the lord and they’re jumping overboard
Crossing borders in a swarm, they’ll never be reformed
It’s a Trojan Horse attack and we’ve got to send them back
There may be Nazis in the hall, answering Hitler’s call
These Jews are Germans after all
It’s 1939 and the boats are coming

Many people have pointed out that if you replace words like “Jewish” and “communist” with words like “Muslim” and “terrorist,” press reports in 1939 and 2015 related to the movements of refugees have been very similar.
