The Lyrics

There was a video on the telly - the routed Russian soldiers had stolen a children's sightseeing road train when they escaped Kherson from the victorious Ukrainians. We are used to seeing Russians r4ping and murd3ring the Ukrainian civilians and looting the washing machines, but that video exceeded all the limits of absurdity.
From the greater Black Sea ocean to the wide Azovian shore
The banks of river Dnipro have seen Russians killed by score
They are running for their lives now, it should be known by all
They stole a children's train we call the Kherson Cannonball

Listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar
as she glides along the highway from Kherson to the shore
She's small, short and cutie, she's known quite well by all
she's the escape train of Russians, the Kherson Cannonball!

Oh, the attack did go pear-shaped and they heard Grim Reaper call
Putin's plan ambitious like a house of cards did fall
By the guiding eye Bayraktar, the HIMARS hit and scored
it is time to run away now and make the diesels roar

Listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar
as she glides along the highway from Kherson to the shore
She's small, short and cutie, she's known quite well by all
she's the escape train of Russians, the Kherson Cannonball!

Here's to Old Man Daddy Putin - may his day at Hague to stand
to answer of his war crimes to come in Ukraine land
When his earthly race is over and the curtains round him willl fall
We'll haul him on his gravesite on the Kherson Cannonball!

Listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar
as she glides along the highway from Kherson to the shore
She's small, short and cutie, she's known quite well by all
she's the escape train of Russians, the Kherson Cannonball!

Anyone who manages to get his hands on Putin is not going to let him get to the Hague. I think there will be some or what we call in the USA "Street Justice". I like the term "hemp fiber therapy".

Great interpretation of some ridiculous actions, backdropped against a wider ridiculous action. I chose johnny Cash's version to compare against, it was a good move.
