Geoff Berner – Maginot Line Lyrics

Stupid! The stout defenders fought their best
but their turrets faced east
and the Germans were west. So if you’ve got something you hold dear
and you’d hate to see it disappear,
You think that everything’s just fine
better check it one more time. Hitler came to call. Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
Thought you were so safe and strong. Filled it with a million men
ten thousand heavy guns and then
figured they would be just fine
now they had the maginot line. He said: Boys, this line is strong and sound,
It’s lucky for us we can just go around. Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
stupid, stupid, you were wrong. Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
Thought you were so safe and strong. Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
Thought you were so safe and strong. Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
Why didn’t some smart fellow say:
Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
Your guns are pointing the wrong way. You were wrong. You were wrong. And reflect upon the Maginot doom:
a perfect fortress makes a perfect tomb. Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
Why didn’t some smart fellow say:
Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
Your guns are pointing the wrong way. Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
Stupid! Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
Stupid! Stupid! It wasn’t very long at all
before Mr. GEOFF BERNERMaginot Line Lyrics
Did you hear about the foolish French
who hid themselves behind a trench?
