I would like the words to this Spike Jones Classic.

I can reembe some of the words, but not all of them. Here's what I remember. By the way, the last time I heard this was 1947.

WHWN THE FEURER SAYS, "WE IS DER MASTER RACE"
WE GO, "HEIL, HEIL," RIGHT IN DER FUERER'S FACE.

WHEN HER GOERING SAYS, " THEY'LL NEVER BOMB THIS PLACE"
WE GO, "HEIL, HEIL," RIGHT IN HER GOERING'S FACE.

WE BRING TO THE WORLD A NEW ORDER
AND WE'LL BRING THEM ALL DIS ORDER.

That's all I can remember.

thanks,

Jody Gibson.

What fun to be reminded of this song! Last time I heard it was in the 60s performed by friends at Brooklyn College who were known as the Shaky Deal Jug Band. They never recorded but enjoyed a bit of success, played on the radio and were on the bill of a folk concert at, I believe, Town Hall. A few -- Richard Blaustein, Gary Lapow and Eric Kaz -- went on to further note in music and may be familiar to some 'catters. Thanks for the memories.

From: Blackcatter
Date: 13 Nov 03 - 07:51 PM

Hello all. It's not that important, but I cleaned up the lyrics a bit - fixed a couple mistakes, put in the German pronunciation and the umlauts. It's closer to what was sung originally. Also came up with a bit more info.

DER FÜHRER'S FACE

Written by Oliver Wallace
From the 1943 Oscar-winning animated short "Der Führer's Face" with Donald Duck.
Performed by Spike Jones & His City Slickers (recorded July 28, 1942)

The melody is a parody of the "Horst Wessell Lied," a Nazi anthem.

Note: Each "Heil! Heil!" is accompanied by what is variously called "the bird", "the raspberry", or "the Bronx cheer"

CHORUS
Ven der Führer says, "Ve ist der Master Race!"
Ve Heil! Heil! right in der Führer's face.
Not to love der Führer ist a great disgrace
So ve Heil! Heil! right in der Führer's face.

Ven Herr Göbbels says, "Ve own der Vorldt und space."
Ve Heil! Heil! right in Herr Göbbels' face.
Ven Herr Göering says, "Dey'll never bomb dis place!"
Ve Heil! Heil! right in Herr Göring's face.

Are ve not die supermen? Aryan pure supermen?
Ja ve ist die supermen! Super duper supermen.
Ist this Nutzi land so goot? Vould you leave it if you could?
Ja this Nutzi land is goot. Ve vould leave it if ve could.

Ve bring der Vorldt new order. Heil Hitler's Vorldt New Order.
Everyone of foreign race vill love der Führer's face
Ven ve bring to der Vorldt disorder.

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE

CHORUS (slows down on the last line)


By the way, Disney has quietly let the animated short disappear from any offical releases on TV or on video. Word has it that it is uncomfortable with the anti-Nazi propoganda that supposedly may upset Germans, or something.

THE HORST WESSEL LIED

Lyrics and translation

Die Fahne hoch die Reihen fest geschlossen
S.A. marschiert mit ruhig festem Schritt
Kam'raden die Rotfront und Reaktion erschossen
Marschier'n im Geist in unsern Reihen mit

Die Straße frei den braunen Batallionen
Die Straße frei dem Sturmabteilungsmann
Es schau'n auf's Hakenkreutz Voll Hoffnung schon Millionen
Der Tag für Freiheit und für Brot bricht an

Zum letzten Mal Wird nun Appell geblasen Zum
Kampfe steh'n Wir alle schon bereit
Bald flattern Hitler-fahnen Über allen Straßen
Die Knechtschaft dauert nur mehr kurze Zeit


English

Raise high the flag, the ranks are closed and tight,
Storm Troopers march, with firm and steady step.
Souls of the comrades shot by Reds and Countermight
Are in our ranks and march along in step.

Open the road just for the brown battalion.
Let's clear the way for the storm trooperman.
In hope, to the swastika raised are eyes of millions,
Dawn breaks for freedom And bread for all man.

This is the final bugle call to arms.
Already we are set prepared to fight.
Soon Hitler's flags will wave o'er every single street.
Enslavement ends when soon we set things right.

Some of the early Disney cartoons - and others by other makers appear to have either passed into Public Domain due to lack of renewing copyright, or have been released on VCD. These are turning up on my local Community TV - Bris 31.

There are quite a lot with very obvious WWII references. Also the Bugs Bunny character looks very different from the modern re-drawings. Also some of the Bugs ones seem to have him behave in a way that is indistinguishable from Daffy Duck... maybe Disney wants to ensure "product differentiation" like in hamburgers....

There are also a lot with very strong "Nigger" connotations, some of which are so strong as to make me uncomfortable, and some of which are so minor as to make me wonder...

There is another famous one of Elmer Fudd, where he is trying to go to sleep and has the fight with the candle which won't extinguish itself - unless it is just the level of expressed casual violence which is also common to many others that appear to have been deemed non-PC. Another famous cartoon is the red and black ants declaring war over the picnic.

I can't recall if the "Der Führer's Face" with Donald Duck has been on, but there is one about Herman Goering hunting Bugs. Also one about the carrier pigeon and Mata Hari. Some Daffy Duck ones are around too. Most of them are still very funny, if somewhat historically dated.

Robin,

I'm not sure, but you might be mixing your Disney characters with your Warner Brothers/Looney Tunes characters. Bugs, Daffy Duck and Elmer are Warner Bros. Donald Duck is Disney (along with Mickey Mouse, Goofy, etc.).

I use to work for Disney and live in the Disney Capital of Orlando, FL. Trust me, Disney would never, ever allow anything to pass into public domain through inaction. If your local TV station is showing any Disney material, they are paying Disney to do so.

Disney agressively defends their copyrights. For example, about 10 years ago, Disney brought suit against a daycare nursery in Tampa Florida for using paintings of Disney characters on their walls. The daycare was forced to paint over the paintings. Also, any graphic arts company that Disney contracts with to do work, must sign a contract that includes a clause that prohibits the company from showing any of their Disney work to other people. This includes using the work as examples to prospective new clients. I have a friend who works in a company that does about 80% of their work for Disney. Since they cannot show their Disney work, they struggle to get non-Disney contracts even though they are really good (as could be evidneced by Disney's use of the company). They cannot even hang their Disney artwork on the walls of the office.

Disney is famous for covering up things that embarass them. They are embarassed about their help with propaganda during WWII - partially because it is somewhat embarassing (though not in a historical context) and partially because they would like people to forget that prior to U.S. involvement in WWII, Walt Disney, himself, was an general admirer of Hitler (as were many U.S. business leaders of the time).

Another example of Disney's self-censorship is the non-availability of the animated & live action movie "Song of the South" Which was based on the Uncle Remus stories of Brer Rabbit, etal. I haven't seen it since the last time it was re-released in the theatres in 1979 or 1980. Never on video either, except in Japan. Yep that's right, Japan. It seems that they have a love of "darkies" and minstrel-like performances. Disney sells "Song of the South" there without fear of embarassment. It's a shame - it's a good movie and the protrayals of blacks is little different that that of Gone With the Wind.

But I digress.

Allan S. is correct. Richard Blaustein did take undergraduate summer classes at Yale, and may have gone on to graduate school there (we lost touch after Brooklyn College). A folklore scholar as well as a fine fiddler, he's on the faculty at Eastern Tennessee State University where he runs the bluegrass program (you can get a degree in it).
At least that's what I've read about him.

It has now been released twice. Once in 2003 and twice in 2005 in CD collections of Donald and also Treasuries.

The cartoon version also contains these additional lyrics:

When der Fuehrer says, we never will be slaves
We heil! Heil! But still we work like slaves.
While der Fuehrer brags and lies and rants and raves
We heil! Heil! And work into our graves.

When der Fuehrer yells "I got to have more shells"
We heil! Heil! For him we make more shells
If one little shell should blow him right to [Heil]
We heil! Heil! And wouldn't that be swell?

After reading the lyrics and watching the YouTube clip, it seems to me that Danny Kaye also sang this song in one of his movies. I may be all wet with that...but it sure sounds familiar, especially with the raspberry after every "heil".

Can anyone prove me right (or wrong, for that matter?) If there is a Danny Kaye version I would like to see the movie again.

Just tried that, FS, and I didn't get very far. A couple of possibilities are The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and Me and the Colonel, and Up in Arms. I couldn't read any details on Up In Arms.

The scene I remember is of Kaye singing the song in a bar surrounded by a bunch of German officers. The Germans laugh at first, but then they catch on to the meaning of the song and Kaye has to beat a hasty retreat.

Arrrrrgh.

Two years ago, one of my sons gave me a Spike Jones reissue CD, including "Der Fuhrer's Face" among a long list of musical mischief. Spike Jones was a fixture in the forties and early fifties, inspiring Weird Al, in later years, to carry the torch of musical parody and farce. Jones was a very accomplished musician and composer who happened on a "gimmick" that gave him a whole new audience. His musicians were all first rate and included specialists in various vocal tricks, such as hiccupping on key, gargling entire songs, etc. He used all sorts of sound effects, the starter's pistol being one of his favorites. It was inspired madness, badly needed during troubled times. He fell out of favor in the fifties, after hosting an early television show, but the memory lingers yet. Great fun!

From IMDb's soundtrack search:

Animated short "Der Fuehrer's Face" (1942) 'A marching band of Germans, Italians, and Japanese march through the streets of swastika-motif Nutziland, serenading "Der Fuehrer's Face." Donald Duck, not living in the region by choice, struggles to make do with disgusting Nazi food rations and then with his day of toil at a Nazi artillery factory. After a nervous breakdown, Donald awakens to find that his experience was in fact a nightmare.'

Song "Der Fuehrer's Face" by Oliver Wallace, who composed a lot of stuff for Disney.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The song also appears in the film "Meet the People" (1944), where it is performed by Spike Jones and His City Slickers, and in the Bruce Willis film "Hart's War" (2002) - no performer given.

Sorry, veering off the subject slightly, Blackcatter's remarks about The Disney Corp's obsessions seem well founded!

I complimented "Paul" of the "Beatles" on their performance at Walt Disney World (UK pavilion) some years ago and he was really embarrassed - I think they had been told to stay in character at all times just as if they had fibreglass heads like Mickey, Donald etc (sorry kids, you had to find out one day).

The brainwashing doesn't work every time. This person shepherding people onto Space Mountain took exception to my Bugs Bunny teeshirt - "Can't allow the opposition on here" he grinned, ho ho ho. I gleefully informed him that it was Brer Rabbit and I'd bought it from their very own gift store 10 minutes previously.

Didn't The Band mention Spike Jones in "Up on Cripple Creek" by the way?

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doodles_Weaver

I thought for years Weaver was singing "Beetle Bomb". I never had a recording of it, til years later - just heard it on the radio or jukebox.

Doodles Weaver Television screen-shot Winstead Sheffield "Doodles" Weaver (May 11, 1911 – January 17, 1983) was an American comedian. He was the brother of NBC-TV executive Sylvester "Pat" Weaver and the uncle of actress Sigourney Weaver.

Born in Los Angeles, Weaver attended Stanford University, where he was a member of the Stanford Chaparral. In the 1940's he was a prominent member of Spike Jones' band The City Slickers.

He is well remembered for his routine of a frantic and corny call of a horse race ("William Tell Overture", vide infra): "It's Girdle in the stretch! Locomotive is on the rail! Apartment House is second with plenty of room! It's Cabbage by a head!" and so on, segueing into an impression of the gravelly-voiced Clem McCarthy who forgets whether he's covering a horse race or a boxing

The race features an apparent nag called "Feitlebaum", who begins at long odds, runs almost the entire race a distant last, and suddenly emerges as the winner. Weaver also portrayed a character in the Jones troupe called "Professor Feitlebaum". That name rhymed with, and was often mistaken for, "Beetlebaum".

After his days with The City Slickers, Weaver hosted humorous children-oriented TV shows, and played eccentric characters in various guest appearances on other shows and in films.
Weaver recorded a novelty version of the Beatles song "Eleanor Rigby", singing, mixing up the words, insulting and interrupting , while playing the piano, and getting booed, as well as injuring his hand, in 1966.

He appeared in a handful of "Dragnet 1967" and "Dragnet 1968" episodes playing various bit parts.
Weaver had a lifelong battle with alcoholism and faced declining health in his later years. He committed suicide by gunshot at age 72.


The antics of Doodles and "Feitlebaum" are also to be found on the cited "Best of..." album.

Does anyone know where I can get a recording of the original song that is featured in the movie by Oliver Wallace? NOT the Spike Jones version.
I would prefer if someone could tell me of somewhere I can download it from, but I would appreciate information about anywhere I can get it from. Thank you.

I am pretty sure you could get it from YOUTUBE

Go to YT and search

Der Fuehrer's Face

About eight or so videos come up. Be worth your while to have a look.

This cartoon came up on one of the anti-BNP threads that were running a while ago. I can't remember which one, but I do remember that the cartoon was hilariously funny.

Doodles Weaver wasn't the only lovable lush in the Disney sphere. None other than Cliff (Ukelele Ike) Edwards, who sang what has become the Disney theme song, "When You Wish Upon a Star," was a self-destructive drinker. He had gone from being a hugely popular, first-rate star in vaudeville to a bit actor and sometime singer by the late 1930's and early '40's who had trouble finding work because of his erratic work habits. Taking a risk, Disney chose him for the Jiminy Cricket role in "Pinocchio" knowing his history and gave him a sort of artistic immortality, though few today even know his name.

Good discussions on Spike Jones and Der Fuehrer's Face.

I don't think anyone has mentioned the Hayes Office, a censorship board that dictated at the time that the razzberry was NOT allowed in movies - including Disney's "Der Fuehrer's Face" (which substituted a tuba groan) and Spike's own performance in "Meet the People" (which cut the song down to 45 seconds of instrumental music).

Spike DID get away with the razzberry sound when he performed the song for Fox Movietone Newsreels.
