Sting - Russians
Tekst: Sting / Muziek: Sting en Sergei Prokofiev
(1985)






In Europe and America
There’s a growing feeling of hysteria
Conditioned to respond to all the threats
In the rhetorical speeches of the Soviets
Mr. Krushchev said we will bury you
I don’t subscribe to this point of view
It would be such an ignorant thing to do
If the Russains love their children too



How can I save my little boy
From Oppenheimer’s deadly toy
There is no monopoly of common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too



There is no historical precedent
To put the words in the mouth of the president
There’s no such thing as a winnable war
It’s a lie we don’t believe anymore
Mr. Reagan says, we will protect you
I don’t subscribe to this point of view
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too



We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology
What might save us, me and you
Is if the Russians love their children too
