Subject: ADD: The United Front Song (Einheitsfront)
From: Joe Offer
Date: 09 Aug 04 - 01:54 AM

My friend Mrs. Lev says she fell in love with Mr. Lev in the 1950's, while they were singing this song. Mr. Lev has been dead 25 years, but Mrs. Lev still remembers.
I found these lyrics on the Web, but I don't know if they're complete; and I haven't been able to find a German version. Actually, the version Mrs. Lev seeks is in English, German, and Spanish. Can anybody help? Can anyone explain the historical context of the song?

The United Front Song (Einheitsfront)
Words by Bertolt Brecht. Set to music by Hanns Eisler

And just because he's human,
A man would like a little bite to eat.
He won't get full on a lot of bull.
That won't give him bread and meat.

CHORUS:
So left, two, three,
So left, two, three,
To the work that we must do.
March on in the workers united front
For you are a worker too.

And just because he's human,
He doesn't want a pistol to his head.
He wants no servants under him,
And no bosses overhead.

CHORUS:

And just because he's a worker,
The job is all his own;
The liberation of the working class
Is the job of the workers alone.

CHORUS:

This page (click) has a number of songs from the Spanish Civil War, including a polyglot version of "Einheitsfront" - but I can't vouch for accuracy.

CANCION DEL FRENTE UNIDO
Texto: Bertold Brecht
Música: Hans Eisler

Y como ser humano
el hombre lo que quiere es su pan
Las habladurías le bastan ya
Porque éstas nada le dan
Pues, un, dos, tres,
Pues, un, dos, tres.
Compañero, en tu lugar!
Porque eres del pueblo afíliate ya
En el Frente Popular.

And just because he's human
He doesn't like a pistol to his head
He wants no servants under him
And no boss over his head
So, left, two, three!
So, left, two, three!
To the work that we must do.
March on in the worker´s united front
For you are a worker, too.

Tu es un ouvrier-oui!
Viens avec nous, ami, n'aie pas peur!
Nous allons vers la grande union
de tous les vrais travailleurs!
Marchons au pas,
marchons au pas,
Camarades, vers notre front!
Range-toi dans le front de tous les ouvriers
Avec tous tes frères étrangers.

Und weil der Prolet ein Prolet ist,
Fromm sehr in Kein underer Refrain.
es kahn gib freit unter Arbeiter nur
das Werker Arbeiter sein.
Drum links, zwei, drei,
drum links, zwei, drei,
wo dein Platz, Genosse, ist!
Reih' dich ein in die Arbeitereinheitsfront,
weil du auch ein Arbeiter bist.
Drum links zwei, drei,
drum links zwei, drei,
wo dein Platz, Genosse, ist!
Reih' dich ein in die Arbeitereinheitsfront,
weil du auch ein Arbeiter bist.





EINHEITSFRONTLIED
Texto: Bertold Brecht
Música: Hans Eisler

Und weil der Mensch ein Mensch ist,
drum braucht er was zum Essen, bitte sehr.
Es macht ihn ein Geschwätz nicht satt,
das schafft kein Essen her.

Drum links, zwei, drei!
Drum links, zwei, drei!
Wo dein Platz, Genosse, ist!
Reih Dich ein in die Arbeitereinheitsfront,
weil auch Du ein Arbeiter bist.

Und weil der Mensch ein Mensch ist,
drum braucht er auch noch Kleider und Schuh'.
Es macht ihn ein Geschwätz nicht warm
und auch kein Trommeln dazu.

Drum links, zwei, drei!
Drum links, zwei, drei!
Wo dein Platz, Genosse, ist!
Reih Dich ein in die Arbeitereinheitsfront,
weil auch Du ein Arbeiter bist.

Und weil der Mensch ein Mensch ist,
drum hat er Stiefel im Gesicht nicht gern,
er will unter sich keine Sklaven sehn
und über sich keinen Herrn.

Drum links, zwei, drei!
Drum links, zwei, drei!
Wo dein Platz, Genosse, ist!
Reih Dich ein in die Arbeitereinheitsfront,
weil auch Du ein Arbeiter bist.

Und weil der Prolet ein Prolet ist,
drum wird ihn kein anderer befrein,
es kann die Befreiung der Arbeiter nur
das Werk der Arbeiter sein!

Drum links, zwei, drei!
Drum links, zwei, drei!
Wo dein Platz, Genosse, ist!
Reih Dich ein in die Arbeitereinheitsfront,
weil auch Du ein Arbeiter bist.
