Paris 1933
It says here: army marches streets
A thousand soldiers seen today
All on the eve of May Day
I found a paper in the antique
"Paris Warlike On May Day Eve"

This gasoline has met its match
Any uprising will be smashed
The stirring guns and loaded tanks
So who shall cast the first red flag?
On yellow paper, black type
Troops are ready to smash a general strike

Up in the attic, under dust
I opened up a soldier's trunk
And now the ghosts inside are all stirred up

Can almost hear those trumpets blare
They're holding fire in the square
They're standing on some general's bones
And that's all the AP wrote
I guess the people all went to sleep
I wonder, what did May first's headlines read?
All on the paper in the antique
Paris warlike on May Day eve
