lyrics

I N T R O
Brian: When I’m in an argument
That doesn’t go my way
I trot out my trusty tactic
That always wins the day

C H O R U S 1
If you say something
I disagree with
You're like Hitler

V E R S E 1 A
You liberals want to force us
to get medically insured
That’s like socialism
and the Nazis used that word
Free contraception
That's eugenics
Just like Hitler

V E R S E 1 B
You’re pushing for big government
To regulate the banks
What’s next? Invading Poland
with two thousand Panzer tanks?
First Glass-Steagall
Then the Anschluss
Just like Hitler

C H O R U S 2
You say something
I disagree with
You're like Hitler
Everybody!
Audience: (You’re like Hitler)
Brian: Very good!
You say something
I disagree with
You're like Hitler
Audience: (You’re like Hitler)
Brian: You say something
I disagree with
You're like Hitler
Audience: (You’re like Hitler)

Brian: You guys are great at following orders!

V E R S E 2 A
You conservatives are scheming
to put prayer back into school
That’s a slippery slope
to having single party rule
A moment of silence
leads to fascism
Just like Hitler

V E R S E 2 B
You want to ban abortions,
and a woman’s right to choose
Next thing you know,
why, you’ll be gassing all the Jews
Pro-life politics
Same as the Holocaust
You’re like Hitler

B R I D G E
First they came for the off-shore tax havens
But I was not an off-shore tax haven,
So I said nothing.

C H O R U S 3
You said something
I disagree with
You're like Hitler
Audience: (You’re like Hitler)

V E R S E 3 A
Brian: You say not to call you Hitler,
the analogy’s unfair
You say it’s like what Goebbels did.
I see what you did there
I called you Hitler
You called me Hitler
That’s so Hitler

V E R S E 3 B
And when someone who is
actually like Hitler comes along
What warning can I sound
that is adequately strong?
I know! Mussolini!
No one will believe me
’Cause they’re like Hitler

C H O R U S 4
You said something
We disagree with
You're like Hitler
Audience: (You’re like Hitler)

E X T E N S I O N
Brian: You’re like Hitler
Audience: (You’re like Hitler)
Brian: No, you're like Hitler
Audience: (You’re like Hitler)
Brian: Hitler!
