President Ronald Reagan did not pressure Israel nearly as much as future presidents. However, in 1985 he raised the ire of the Jewish community by honoring to a World War II military cemetery in Bitburg, Germany.

The lyrics to Bonzo Goes To Bitburg were written by the Jewish lead singer of the band. Bonzo refers to a nickname the president recieved from one of his past movie roles. Born Jeffery Hyman, Joey Ramone became a cult hero with the The Ramones. Their short , fast catchy songs were considered trend setting. The track opens with the sound of railroad cars and moves into electric guitars. The chorus of whoas, ooh and aahs, makes the catchy track work well. It is included on several greatest hits CDs.

You've got to pick up the pieces
Come on sort your trash
You better pull yourself back together
Maybe you've got too much cash
Better call the law
When you gonna turn yourself in
You're a politician
Don't become one of Hitler's children

Bonzo goes to Bitburg then goes out for a cup of tea
As I watched it on TV somehow it really bothered me
Drank in all the bars in town for an extended foreign policy
Pick up the pieces

My brain is hanging upside down
I need something to slow me down

Shouldn't wish you happiness
Wish her the very best
Fifty thousand dollar dress
Shaking hands with your highness
See through you like cellophane
You watch the world complain But you do it anyway
Who am I
Am I to say

Bonzo goes to Bitburg then goes out for a cup of tea
As I watched it on TV somehow it really bothered me
Drank in all the bars in town for an extended foreign policy
Pick up the pieces

My brain is hanging upside down
I need something to slow me down

If there's one thing that makes me sick
It's when someone tries to hide behind politics
I wish that time could go by fast
Somehow they manage to make it last
