Hey Commoner!

Hey, you listen, I am speaking.
I, Hitler, swear by truth.
I’ll speak only truth
since I know nothing but the truth.
Opponents are just opponents,
useless, cunning scoundrels,
and therefore, unsuccessful.
Leave them.
Listen to me, I am speaking.

Hey, you write, I am speaking.
I am history, all thought emerges from me.
I am religion, custom too.
I am the Creator, I am the universe,
God is me, Destruction is me,
I am the Son of God.
Write from My Word, whatever I say.

Hey, you do what I say.
Don’t be afraid, do or die,
you brought nothing to the table.
I am your destiny.
Whatever you earned, I gave you,
and will continue to provide.
Just listen carefully,
do only what I say.
