The Lyrics

This KGB parvenu
ran a small, light-fingered crew
using their crypto software—
what they stole, they would soon share
with a guy in London,
but the hack soon came undone.
Then came payback time
for this Russian-pulled crime.

They broke into
some of our computers, this crew.
It was one of their cyber hits:
Putin palmed the bits.

Crim’nal types who drink all day Coke,
type all night, it’s at keys they poke.
What’s up? It’s
Putin glommin’ bits.

Sets up his million-terabyte scoopers;
they’re the Democratic Party poopers—
Puter troopers.

Off they ripped, these Bloc-curse fellas,
lots of bits; then robber fella
cashed in chits—
Putin hawked the bits.

So we had to say to nasty Vladi’,
“You must make minions from Maryland flee!”
Such a baddie!

The amount they stole was whopping;
then around Assange came shopping—
got his mitts
on Put’s purloined bits.

Hilarious! But also sad because it's true!

And yeah, America doesn't hack Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, Germany, Italy, Turkey, and so on... sometimes aggressively, sometimes subtly.
