Geoff Berner – Maginot Line Lyrics

Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
stupid, stupid, you were wrong. Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
Thought you were so safe and strong. Stupid! 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,
Thought you were so safe and strong. The stout defenders fought their best
but their turrets faced east
and the Germans were west. Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
Stupid! You were wrong. Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
Stupid! It wasn’t very long at all
before Mr. Hitler came to call. 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. He said: Boys, this line is strong and sound,
It’s lucky for us we can just go around. Filled it with a million men
ten thousand heavy guns and then
figured they would be just fine
now they had the maginot line. GEOFF BERNERMaginot Line Lyrics
Did you hear about the foolish French
who hid themselves behind a trench? You were wrong. Stupid! Maginot Line, Maginot Line,
Thought you were so safe and strong. 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.
