BERLIN ’36

BERLIN ’36
(J. Lowe / Lowe Life Music)

Berlin, have you heard of the human races,
Berlin, say that name in important places,
Berlin, steps so light just the best can dance them,
Berlin, light the torch and strike up those anthems.

Money’s no hurdle, colour’s no bar,
It’s not the winning, it’s the taking part,
They’ve come a long way since the war,
All the way to Berlin, Berlin.

Berlin, say it loud with a clap of thunder,
Berlin, watch the world’s eyes grow wide with wonder,
Berlin, There’s much talk of a new beginning,
Berlin, say the word and they’ll all come running.

The sons and daughters of the world they say,
Europe, Asia and the USA,
But the children of Israel stay away,
Well away from Berlin, Berlin.

CHORUS

ΑΘΑΝΑΤΗ ΦΛΟΓΑ ΤΗΣ ΟΛΥΜΠΙΑΣ, ΦΩΤΙΣΕ ΤΟΝ ΔΡΟΜΟ ΜΑΣ
