Don't you know me Kansas city
I'm the New Berlin wall
Try and tear me down

I was born on the other side
Of a town ripped in two
I made it over the great devide
Now I'm comin' for you

Enemies and adversaries
They try and tear me down
You want me baby, I dare you
Try and tear me down

I rose from off of the doctor's slab
Like Lazarus from the pit
Now everyone wants to take a stab
And decorate me with blood graffiti and spit

Enemies and adversaries
They try and tear me down
You want me baby, I dare you
Try and tear me down

On August 13th, 1961
A wall was erected
Down the middle of the city of Berlin
The world was divided by a cold war
And the Berlin wall
Was the most hated symbol of that divide
Reviled, graffitied, spit upon
We thought the wall would stand forever

And now that it's gone
We don't know who we are anymore
Ladies and gentlemen
Hedwig is like that wall
Standing before you in the divide
Between east and west
Slavery and freedom
Man and woman, top and bottom

And you can try and tear her down
But before you do
You must remember one thing

Hey, there ain't much of a difference
Between a bridge and a wall
Without me right in the middle, babe
You would be nothin' at all

Enemies and adversaries
They try and tear me down
You want me baby, I dare you
Try and tear me down

Enemies and adversaries
They try and tear me down
You want me baby, I dare you
Try and tear me down

From east Berlin to junction city
Hello New York hello Missouri
What you try and tear me down?
Come on and tear, come on and tear me down
