The Lyrics

"Polivoks" is a Soviet-made analogue synthesizer from the eighties. It has very distinctive, raw and weird sound, and It has became a classic amongst keyboard players. Mint Polivoks can achieve very high prices in eBay. Hardware hackers have configured MIDI interfaces and various effects for Polivoks. My hubby managed finally to find one, and he asked me to make a parody for that machine.
Polivoks, Polivoks -
Oh Poli- Poli- Poli-
Polivoks Polivoks.....

Got this synthie Polivoks
Want you know
Its sound is more brutal than chainsaw
And its controls are just like from Russian sub
Man, when you twist the knob!

It sounds just
Polivoks, Polivoks -
Oh Poli- Poli- Poli-
Polivoks Polivoks.....

Weirder than Moog on 'shrooms
Yamaha, Roland or Korg -
If you want some noise
Shrieks, bangs or booms -
Just like Star Trek Borg!

Polivoks, Polivoks -
Oh Poli- Poli- Poli-
Polivoks Polivoks.....

Crazy are all its sounds
Tell you how
Just twist the volume to eleven now
Its sound is just like a kicking of mule -

Wanna play that -
Polivoks, Polivoks -
Oh Poli- Poli- Poli-
Polivoks Polivoks...

Never heard of Polivoks (rus. = Поливокс), but I may have heard its sound before. Personally, I like the Moog Minimoog the best, and I hope to obtain one of those someday.

They gotta sound better than Bagpipes. Felines in heat sound better than Bagpipes. I thought this may have been an instrumental since it was about an instrument. Wish you'd have plugged in a sound byte link somewhere in the comments sections. 5 keys for this number and that ain't smack.
