Lyrics by Bertolt Brecht. Music by Mark Nichols


The city is still and quiet
But why are there armed men
The governor's palace is at peace
But why is it a fortress

And the governor returned to his palace
And the fortress was a trap

And the goose was plucked and roasted
But the goose was never eaten
And noon was no longer the hour to eat
And noon was the hour to die
