Lyrics by B. Brecht, additional lyrics by Mark Nichols. Music by Mark Nichols


The drowning he did save them
Broken laws like breath he gave them
Justice to the poor and lowly
Like an angel but not so holy

Swim them all to shore on his tired, crooked back
For two years was his pleasure
Give the beasts of prey his measure
From the forests to the hallows
He could smell the dung from the gallows

In the use of the noose he was never slack
Like a cornered wolf he would take on the pack
The only one with the point
Is the man sitting there on the tack

Who can it be? Who can it be?
