On a summer day of 1941
Hitler went at us with fire.
In the spring of 1945
He choked in fire
(On the right side)
We were loyal to our oath
By defending our people
We signed at the Reichstag
And finished our campaign.
(On the bottom)
We are strengthening our defense
With the holy love of the motherland
Whoever dares to touch us
Has himself to blame!Close Full Translation
