Curtains for the Wall
From Budapest to Bucharest
Democracy's in from the West
Communism's on its knees
Heedless of its dictators' pleas
Economies of running free
Dog the heels of history.
In the Eighties' East Germany
It took half a years salary
To buy a color VCR
And a BMW car
Required the riches of a czar.The Wall fell downIt wasn't hammers and chisels
And broke its crown
And all the King's horses
and all the King's men
Couldn't put it together again.
Or rockets or guided missiles
That transformed the Wall into dust
And turned the Iron Curtain to rust
But seeds of democracy nourished
By flowing tears of the vanquished.
And when the Wall at last disappears
We'll remember over the years -
As the Wall recedes, brick by brick -
Communication did the trick.
