The Lyrics

Hallmark of Soviet car
Won't get you really far
before it breaks down

lump of the Soviet steel
awful to drive for real -
it's crappiest around

Moskvich is small and ugly and clanky
and the worksmanship leaves desired
It is cramped and unsafe and cranky
in accident it will easily catch fire

Moskvich, Moskvich
Junkyard filler, clunky gear
Blue smoke tells you one is near
Wo-ho-ho-ho-ho, hey!
Moskvich, Moskvich
safety of a cardboard box
That is car that really sucks

Large as an Edsel, sure
safe as a Pinto, true
don't drive on ice!

Engine that's oversized
chassis that will capsize
Not very nice.

Nickname of Volga is "Flying coffin"
and that name is real well-deserved
Two hundred klicks per hour you'll go rough in
Losing control won't leave much preserved

Volga, Volga,
Monster of the Party boys
their sons' primary favourite toy
Wo-ho-ho-ho-ho, hey!
Volga, Volga,
all too easy overspeed
Hard to steer and brakes are weak

Beauty from Italy
Soviet technology
Fiat One-Two-Four

not really driver's dream
like Soviet submarine
is it's dashboard

Lada grows red rust all so easily
it has not been built to endure
Soviet worksmanship is quite beastly
and its design is not haute couture

Lada, Lada,
It's square box and wheels are round
Watch out for that funny sound
Wo-ho-ho-ho-ho, hey!
Lada, Lada
Drops its parts along the road
In the end you'll need be towed

When I was in high school I received a booklet on the history of the Moskvich car from Russia. I was fascinated by the Cyrillic alphabet and began using it to take notes in school that my teachers and classmates couldn't read. The Italian Fiat had a notoriously poor reputation in the US. One can only imagine combining that engineering nightmare with Russian workmanship. The only things Russians can manufacture that would sell overseas are weapons. I think the Lada was sold in Canada. Wonder how long they held up in that brutal climate.
