Do anyone have the lyrics to a song by John Prine called "Dancin' on the Wall". Song was written when the Berlin Wall was pushed down.

Can't seem to find it on John Prine Shrine website, or anywhere else.

The song begins with lines: I want your East German kisses on my West German face We’ll hang old Gorby’s picture up above the fireplace

DANCING ON THE WALL

I want your East German kisses on my West German face
Let's hang old Gorby's picture up above the fireplace
Go tell the friends and neighbors, and bring grandma in her shawl
Cause tonight we're going dancing on the wall

Go out dancing on the wall tonight, beneath that big old moon
We've been apart just too darn long and now we'll sit and spoon
You can be my little Frauline, we can make the world real small
Cause tonight we're going dancing on the wall

Ich bin ein Berliner, howdy-doo, y'all
If you'll meet me in the springtime, I'll kiss you in the fall
Yeah, we're gonna have a party, honey, we're gonna have a ball
Cause tonight we're going dancing on the wall

Go out dancing on the wall tonight, beneath that German moon
We've been apart just too darn long and now we'll sit and spoon
If you show me your lederhosen, I’ll take you to a shopping mall
Cause tonight we’re going dancing on the wall

I want your East German kisses on my West German Face
Let's hang old Gorby's picture up above the fireplace
Go tell all the friends and neighbors, and bring grandma in her shawl
Cause tonight we're going dancing on the wall

And don't forget your ??flugel blocker??
We're gonna set this wall a-rockin'
Later we'll go cuckoo clockin'
Dancing on the wall




Not sure about the phrase in question marks. Maybe a German speaker could lend an ear?
