Who betrayed us?

There's an old communist saying
That was used to dis their false friends back in 1918
Of course, the political situation is different today
But it still rings true somehow
 
Who betrayed us? Social democrats!
Who betrayed us? Who sold us out?
Who betrayed us? Social democrats!
They betrayed us and they sold us out, too
 
I think I'll turn it into a song with a working-class children's choir
They can sing the chorus to their unemployed parents
The employees are already singing, the students, and the farmers
Soon, even the ones who still mourn Ludwig Erhard will be singing
 
Who betrayed us? Social democrats!
Who betrayed us? Who sold us out?
Who misguided us? Social democrats!
They betrayed us and they sold us out, too
 
Karl Liebknecht had this saying on his writing desk
And now it's a poster on Oskar Lafontaine's wall
Its meaning is still well understood even in Schleswig-Holstein
Where Heide Simonis dances the tango, muttering under her breath
 
Who betrayed me? Social democrats!
Who betrayed me? Who sold me out?
Who betrayed us? Social democrats!
They betrayed us and they sold us out, too
 
And, well, they lost the new election, that's something to consider
Finally, you can hate the government with all your heart again
Yes, the ship is sinking and the rats, they fled at once
But they came back to bring the black plague1 aboard
 
Who, who, who, who, who betrayed us?
Pretty sure it was... wasn't it the social democrats?
It was the social democrats, they betrayed us
They betrayed us, they sold us out
 
The social state and socialism, both of them are dead
All that's left are hollow phrases and red by the litre2
And who stands beside their graves, spade in hand and a smile on their faces?
Don't tell me, let me guess: social democrats
And all that pretty money, who blew it on the rich?
Pretty sure it was... wasn't it the social democrats?
 
Who betrayed us? Who has this much money?
Who has this much dough? Who ordered that?
Who, who, who, who, who betrayed us?
Who, who, who, who, who betrayed us?
Who, who, who, who, who sold us out?
