Rushian, always rushian
Yeah, yeah
Rushian, always rushian
Yeah, yeah

Anatole, do you have to
Keep on telling me
That this time will pass you

And we wont be
Rushian, always rushian
Yeah, yeah
Rushian, always rushian
Yeah, yeah

You set up the roadblock and don't think of Kafka
And keep on telling me
The way you ride them czar's men will never catch you

oodalolly oodalolly golly what a day
oodalolly oodalolly golly what a day
oodalolly oodalolly golly what a day
oodalolly oodalolly golly what a day

Rushian, always rushian
Yeah, yeah
Rushian, always rushian
Yeah, yeah

But don't look back
It'll only slow you down
Don't wanna' know the odds when it's us against the crown
And if you hear 'em close behind ya
Don't let the coin out shine you
Just leave them one by one by one on the ground
'Cause my sweet Czarina I'm sorry my sweet Czarina, I’m sorry my sweet Czarina, I’m sorry but you have to step down

oodalolly oodalolly golly what a day
oodalolly oodalolly golly what a day
oodalolly oodalolly golly what a day
oodalolly oodalolly golly what a day

CCCP, you'll never get me
CCCP, you'll never get me
CCCP

    General CommentThere's a lot in this song that points to it, at least overtly, being about the Bolsheik (sp?) Revolution in Russia. The CCCP is cyrillic for what we call the USSR in English. And there is a mention of a Czarina, which is a wife to a Czar. At the time the Czarina would have been Alexandra Fyodorovna. But, this might only be a literal translation. The mention of Kafka, a German novelist who was quite anti-bearucratic and Antole, a French poet who has been quoted as saying "If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing," both throw me off a little bit.

    General Commentquick interpretation. the word 'rushian' is a combination of rushing and russian...referring to how the bolsheviks attempted to 'rush' into communism. they essentially tried a top-down style of instituting it into a soviet union that was not ready for it to succeed...and so it failed. state radio has some obvious revolutionary ideas, so i'm guessing they are saying you can't force these things like the ussr did...and they were the last legit attempt at communism, so that sweet czarina can step down now...just a thought.

    General Comment"oodalolly" is an allusion to the cartoon version of robin hood. Robing hood had a messege of "take from the rich - give to the poor" prolly poking fun at communism
