Crystal Night

I’m a Zoot Suitor
Just like a Jazz record
We’re at a hot swing club
On a night of broken glass

Am I a Teddy boy
Or the real McCoy?
The Gestapo’s on the way
So we gotta move fast

The clubhouse is yearning
And synagogue’s burning
I’d skip out on a fight 
But the vinyl keeps turning

We’re gonna dance all the while
Without the crocodiles
And if they drag us off to Auschwitz
Then well yell “Swing Heil!”
