The Lyrics

Well, nothing to do with ZZ Top! We are releasing one that we wrote so long ago, I (Pippin) had forgotten it, and then upon submission I was reading through it and thought "This doesn't make any sense". But it does! Eventually! Original song on YouTube

Moscow trip: stopped there on a drive
Moscow trip: stopped there on a drive
Sought babushkas, dachas, trees of lime
Sought babushkas, dachas, trees of lime

I sat down on the seat at arches there
I sat down on the seat at arches there
Ask for some ‘salfetka’ get a stare
Ask for ‘stakhan voda’ get a glare

No vodka on the menu, nor no borscht
No Metro for to ride on, as transport
Moscow: did no blasted Kremlin sight
Moscow: there no Pushkin did recite

Da, da, da? Kto? Kto? Kto?

Doh!

Can’t view no Bolshoi; Red Square, didn’t see ‘em
Ain’t no damn sign of Lenin’s mausoleum
Slavs and caviar: why were concealed?
Place of Gorky Park was not revealed

That Moscow trip: Basil’s church? Not find...
That Moscow City: Commies not espy’n
The Moscow trip: Lada sights denied
The Moscow trip: their Cosmonauts, they hide...

Da da da ! Nyet, nyet, nyet!

D’oh!

That Moscow trip: cossacks out of sight
That Moscow trip: comrades couldn’t find
The Moscow trip: foreign I don’t go
The Moscow City was in Idaho!

On the bright side you shouldn't have any trouble finding potatoes. 5's

I once did a parody of this song which dealt with the role that Barney Frank played in the 2008 Stock Market Meltdown whose title shall not be revealed here. Sufffice it to say, it's the title of the OS plus the addition of a certain unrounded alveolar rhotic approximant consonant ... IF ya know what I mean!!

And where there's plenty of potatoes there should be plenty of vodka - you sure Idaho isn't part of Russia?

Idaho's problem is seemingly less like 2018 Russia, more like 1933 Germany. Don't forget that Sarah Palin was born there, and went to college there.

Hmmn...Idaho-Russia, Palin-Putin, could there be a connection? Could she be a specially challenged distant relative?

Good to see you guys back but once again not going with the chosen artist. I would like to see your take on a ZZ Top or an Alice Cooper song. Hopefully we’ll get you back next month with KISS. Keep up the good work!
