Inscription on Franco's coat:
“Throwing on his coat, hiding his guitar,”
Don Franco sings about neutrality.
While behind his coat, in the evening dusk,
The German murderer hides from his woes.
The Spanish brunette puts all his passion
Into his long, deceitful song.
While the Germans escape to Argentina,
Don Franco sings of neutrality.
