Geier Sturzflug - Besuchen Sie Europa (solange es noch steht):
Geier Sturzflug - Besuchen Sie Europa - YouTube

Its a german song from the "Neue Deutsche Welle (New German Wave)" era.
The Bands literal name translation would be somthing like "Vulture Dive".

Sadly it seem there is no english version but some text lyrics:
When submarines drop anchor in the Grand Canal
And you can find in St. Peter's square in Rome
Missile launchers,
When a carpet of bombs hovers over the bazaar in Ankara
And a Pershing II rises from the Olympus Range,

It will already be way too late,
Already it will be game over.
Visit Europe
While it's still standing.

When in front of the ancient cathedral in Cologne a mushroom-shaped cloud rises,
And the sky is filled with the odor of a neutron bomb,
When in Paris the Eiffel Tower leans toward the west in a final salute,
And you can see near Big Ben a gentle alpine sunset,

It will already be way too late,14
Already it will be game over.
Visit Europe
While it's still standing.

When haute cuisine turns into a sorcerer's cauldron,
When the cook from overseas flambés his Old World,
And there's laughter and applause
Because even the waiter gets kicked,
What will be left for us besides culture?
Bon appé***.

It will already be way too late,
Already it will be game over.
Visit Europe
While it's still standing.
Yes, it will already be way too late,
Already it will be game over.
Visit Europe
While it's still standing.
While it's still standing, while it's still standing,
While it's still standing, while it's still standing.
