I mentioned this video in the wonderful thread about architecture. It is an old German song one from 1983 warning of a destruction of Europe


When submarines drop anchor in the Grand Canal,
and rocket launching pads stand in St Peter's Square in Rome,
a carpet of bombs hovers over the bazaar in Ankara,
and from the hills of Olympus rises a Pershing 2.
Then it will all be too late,
Then, when nothing else works,
visit Europe,
while it still stands.

A mushroom cloud rises into the air in front of the old Cologne Cathedral,
and the sky is filled with the smell of neutron weapons,
when in Paris the Eiffel Tower bows west for its final salute,
and near Big Ben there is a delicate alpenglow.
Then everything is long too late,
Then, when nothing else works,
visit Europe..,
while it still stands.
When haute cuisine becomes a witches' cauldron
where the chef from overseas flambés his old world,
there's laughter and applause, because even the waiter gets a kick,
what's left but culture, we wish you bon appétit.
Then everything is long too late,
Then, when nothing else works,
visit Europe,
while it still stands.
Yes Then everything is long too late,
Then, when nothing else works,
Visit Europe
While it's still standing.
While it still stands, while it still stands.
While it still stands, while it still stands.
