[YITZHAK:] Ladies and gentlemen Whether you like or not HEDWIG! [HEDWIG:] Don't you know me? 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 divide Now I'm coming 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 [YITZHAK:] On August 13, 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 to tear her down But before you do Remember one thing [HEDWIG:] Listen There ain't much of a difference Between a bridge and a wall Without me right in the middle, babe You would be nothing at all Enemies and adversaries They try and tear me down You want me, baby, I dare you Try and tear me down
