The "Alabama Song"-also known as "Moon of Alabama", "Moon over Alabama", and "Whisky Bar"-is an English version of a song written by Bertolt Brecht and translated from German by his close collaborator Elisabeth Hauptmann in 1925 and set to music by Kurt Weill for the 1927 play Little Mahagonny. It was reused for the 1930 opera Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny and has been notably covered by The Doors and David Bowie.
Here we are, once again Stronger now than we have ever been Hand in hand, heart to heart Now we made it through the hardest part. We had to break it all down to build it back up Lean on each other when the times got rough How we survive going through so much Baby you and I could write a book about love.

Lyrics to "Alabama Song (Whisky Bar)" song by The Doors: Well, show me the way To the next whisky bar Oh, don't ask why Oh, don't ask why Show me . .
Here we are, once again Stronger now than we have ever been Hand in hand, heart to heart Now we're made it through the hardest part. Chorus: We had to break it all down To build it back up Lean on each other when the times got rough How'd we survive going through so much Baby you and me could write a book about love. Here we are, one to one Looking back to see how far we've come.
