Ten Little Grumblers

Ten little grumblers were sitting over wine.
One of them knew something about Goebbels, and then there were nine.

Nine little grumblers had a thought.
One of them thought it out loud, and then there were eight.

Eight little grumblers, they wrote something.
They found the manuscript with one of them, and then there were seven.

Seven little grumblers, they were asked
“Does it taste good?“ One of them said fit only for pigs.
And then there were six.

Six little grumblers, they met a Hitler Youth.
One of them said rascal, and then there were five.

Five little grumblers who used to play piano
One of them played Mendelssohn, and then there were four.

Four little grumblers talked about Robert Ley
One of them said “always drunk,” and then there were three.

Three little grumblers who asked about
The point of Mr. Rosenberg’s Myth of the 20th Century
And then there was one.

One little grumbler let someone see this
Song. He ended up in Orianienburg Concentration Camp
Then there were none.
