When the Nazis came for the communists, 
I did not speak out; 
As I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats, 
I did not speak out; 
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists, 
I did not speak out;
 As I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews, 
I did not speak out;
 As I was not a Jew.

When they came for me,
 there was no one left to speak out.


It's starting to feel like it's about time to break this old chestnut back out.
