Best Poem of Bertolt Brecht

Alabama Song

Show me the way to the next whisky bar
Oh, don't ask why, oh, don't ask why
Show me the way to the next whisky bar

Oh, don't ask why, oh, don't ask why
Show me the way to the next pretty girl
Oh don't ...

A guileless word is an absurdity. A smooth forehead betokens
A hard heart. He who laughs
Has not yet heard
The terrible tidings.

Ah, what an age it is
