First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me
