The Lyrics

The original is a folk song, of the seventies' nostalgy. As I am a child of the seventies, composing this song brought me mixed memories. As most of you are unlikely to know the original, you might take the song as a poem.
It was time before Ronald Reagan
when red were the Firsts of May
We marched against the nuclear power
and wars were somewhere far away
And we boarded the Stockholm ferry
to get cheap booze and fashion clothes
And the boys went to bars of Sodermalm
got high and told Swedish jokes

Yet I couldn't think of a nicer friend
than the Big Sister of the West
it beat us in the ice hockey
we replied on the track and field
and they had the King (javisst!)
But we had - Kekkonen

And so red and so big was the USSR
the Grand and Mighty East;
the home of the peace and socialism
and the ten rouble vodka at least
The world was so clear, there were Red and Whites
you good from the bad could brag
The world and telly was black and white
until it came the spring from Prague

Yet I couldn't think of more faithful friend
than the Big Brother of the East
we feared a little bit of it
yet we quite good business did
as they had Uncle Lenin (da!)
and we had - Kekkonen

And we knew of the land far behind the sea
the home of the dollar bill
The land of which came the Peyton Place
which most of us reckon still
We were scared of the Mighty Eagle
of its military and its might
yet the friendly people of USA
was admired here outright

Yet I couldn't think of a dearer friend
than the Uncle beyond the sea
we thought that filthy rich they were
yet all kinds of folks were there
and they had Uncle Sam (yea!)
but we had - Kekkonen
