The Lyrics

Shostakovich, Shostakovich
Not Rostropovich.
Shostakovich, Shostakovich
Not Rostopovich
Shostakovich, Shostakovich.
I meant Shostakovich.


15 symphonies from Dmitri
String quartets all came from Dmitri
Russian preludes, thank you, Dmitri
Da, da-aaah, kak, da!
Propaganda wrung from Dmitri
By the patrons there in the Party
Agitprop like blood from a turnip
Da, da-aaah, Pravda!

Shostakovich, Shostakovich
Poor Shostakovich
Shostakovich, Shostakovich
Tough Shostakovich
Shostakovich, Shostakovich
You go, Shostakovich!


Just how long has this been going on
So just how long has this been going on
So just how long has this been going on
This movement is long, long...


Shostakovich, Shostakovich
Shostakovich, Shostakovich
Shostakovich, Shostakovich
Long haul! Shostakovich.

oh, yeah, I forgot the yell, 'Slava Shostakovich!' at the beginning.

One of my least favorite composers. He liked to bring out great big orchestras and then have many of them play just little bits. Like watching backup singers without the dancing.

Who the fu***** hell is Shostakovich? (it made me laugh though!)
