Bear Cage

‘You can keep your Brussels and Amsterdam ‘

In keeping with the title of this blog I should also point out that the Stranglers also wrote a song about Berlin and East Germany. Its titled Bear Cage, not one of their best if I am honest but here are the lyrics and I even found the video for you. A nice depiction of ‘Bearlin’.

 work hard, I’m saving my marks
Watch what I do when I swim with the sharks
A new race and a new way to race
Feel ashamed as I live a disgrace

Gee, (G.) I’m (M.) living (B.H.) in a bear cage
Gee, (G.) I’m (M.) living (B.H.) in a bear cage

They never told me what was the truth
Just a young man losing his youth
Sell cars, sell meat, selling anything
Save up just to live like a king

Gee, (G.) I’m (M.) living (B.H.) in a bear cage
Gee, (G.) I’m (M.) living (B.H.) in a bear cage

Bear cage
Bear cage

You can keep your Brussels and Amsterdam
Give me back my summer in Dresden, Man
But they still got peace police over there
Drawing lines on a map just to show I’m there

Gee, (G.) I’m (M.) living (B.H.) in a bear cage
Gee, (G.) I’m (M.) living (B.H.) in a bear cage
Gee, (G.) I’m (M.) living (B.H.) in a bear cage

Bear cage
Bear cage
Bear cage
Bear cage

Gee, (G.) I’m (M.) living (B.H.) in a bear cage
Gee, (G.) I’m (M.) living (B.H.) in a bear cage
Gee, (G.) I’m (M.) living (B.H.) in a bear cage
Gee, (G.) I’m (M.) living (B.H.) in a bear cage
