Georg Kreisler was an Austrian–American Viennese-language cabarettist, satirist, composer, and author. In 1938, he was forced to flee with his parents due to increasing Nazi restrictions on Jews. In 1943, he became an American citizen. In 1955, he returned to Europe. His songs are characterized by black humour and uncompromising criticism of society and politics.
The song is written by Georg Kreisler and interpreted by his fourth wife Barbara Peters.
