    Default What is the name of this German war march?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_lEqM4aIyQ

    I use to have it on my pc but then it was stolen along with it's actual name.

    Move it to the German forum
    Gott zur Ehr, dem nächsten zur Wehr

    What if they gave a fire and nobody came.

    GRÜN IST UNSER FALLSCHIRM
    Green is our parachute

    This is a paratrooper song. I don't know why there are all these tanks in the video.



    Grün ist unser Fallschirm,
    Green is our parachute
    froh das junge Herz,
    joyful the young heart
    stählern unsere Waffen,
    steely our weapons
    sind aus deutschem Erz.
    (they are made) out of German ore.

    |: Drum Kameraden, hört die Parole
    Therefore Comrades, hear the rallying cry
    und prägt sie in das junge Herz hinein.
    and engrave it in your young heart
    Fertig zum Sprung,
    Ready to jump
    Signal gegeben,
    Signal given
    das Leben will gewonnen sein. :| x2
    Life will be won

    Gehen wir dann in Stellung,
    We go then in service
    geht es endlich los,

    rufen wir "Hurra, hurra zum Gegenstoß".
    we call "hurray hurray to (the) counter-attack
    |: Drum Kameraden... :| x2

    Ist die Schlacht zu Ende,
    Is the battle over
    ist der Krieg dann aus,
    Is the war then done

    ziehen deutsche Fallschirmjäger
    German paratroopers pull out
    siegreich nach Haus'.
    victoriously home
    |: Drum Kameraden... :| x2


    The lyrics posted with the above video are slightly different, but the song sung is the same as the lyrics I found.
    Gott zur Ehr, dem nächsten zur Wehr

    What if they gave a fire and nobody came.

    Thank you for the help. The song name 'Grun ist unser fallschirm' was correct, it's one of my favourites; so thank you very much for your help. P.S. I hit reply to the wrong message, sorry.
