Il 24 giugno 1943 Mussolini dichiarava che un eventuale sbarco degli alleati sarebbe stato bloccato ‎‎“su quella linea che i marinai chiamano del bagnasciuga”…‎
Il 10 luglio i soldati di Patton e Montgomery sbarcavano in Sicilia…‎
Il 22 luglio Palermo veniva liberata…‎
Il 25 luglio Mussolini veniva sfiduciato ed arrestato…‎
Fine della ventennale dittatura fascista.‎
Now many songs are written
Of warriors here and there
Of slant-eyed Japs And Hitler saps
Who rave and tear their hair
The Axis camps are mourning
They lost their favorite clown
When Mussolini laid his pistol down
Laid his pistol down
Laid his pistol down
He bellowed here, he bellowed there
He strutted 'round the old town square
But when our bombers fill the air
He lays his pistol down, down
Laid his pistol down

He looks so high and mighty
Makin' speeches bold
Way up there on the balcony
Think of the lies he told
He strutted once too often
When our boys came to town
Oh, when Mussolini laid his pistol down
Laid his pistol down
Laid his pistol down
When things got tough he quit the fight
And pulled the back door sneak at night
As soon as he was out of sight
He laid his pistol down, down
Laid his pistol down

Now I could tell for hours
Of dirty things he's done
But history will tell the tale
Of how that windbag run
He lit out down the mountain
Our boys were comin' 'round
Ol' fatso laid his packin' pistol down
Laid his pistol down
Laid his pistol down
His empire fell down with a bang
He left his Fascist pals to hang
He ran out on the whole sh'bang
And laid his pistol down, down
Laid his pistol down
