Story about this misheard lyric by: Slightly Strange Al

I was much younger, about 5 or 6, and I heard this song on a TV commercial for a disco music compilation album. The misheard lyrics are a rough approximation of what I heard. Come to think of it, my 5-or-6-year-old self didn't hear actual lyrics, but rather a vocalization along the lines of "A-doo-duh-stee-a-duh..."

Russian convoys are seen, and the Foxhounds are real
Putin loves the old “Cold War” feel!
Original Lyrics:
It's fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A
It's fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A
They have everything for young men to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys

You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal
You can do whatever you feel
