Careless Talks

Three verses written for a F.S.S. Officer.


A babe must crawl before it walks,

An old proverb oft repeated,

But “Hitler listens to your talks”,

Is one to be well treated.


Only say what you have to say

In your messages long or short,

Hitler listens both night and day,

So be careful – don’t be caught.


Hitlers ears are everywhere -

On the land and in the air,

He listens here, he listens there,

So don’t talk careless – just take care.
