All this talk of blood and iron
All this talk of blood and iron
All this talk of blood and iron

It's the cause of all my shaking
It makes me want to run out shaking
That's something we can do without
O Doctor Doctor, what's in my shirt?
Just keep quiet, no room for doubt
I'm hearing talk of joy in labor
The motherland's no place to cry for
I'm hearing talk of strength in labor
If I'm only blood and iron


It's the cause of all my shaking
It makes me want to run out shouting
That's something I can do without
O Doctor Doctor, what's in my shirt?
Just keep quiet, no room for doubt
