The Lyrics

I realize that a parody about a prison system which killed millions of people is not exactly in good taste, but I thought that Senator Durbin, Amnesty International, and the rest of the "Guantanamo = Gulag" crowd could use a history lesson.
GULAG is where you're gonna stay

Say you have too many cows
Or if you wanna take a religious vow
Tellin' a joke about Uncle Joe
He's got a prison camp where you can go
You're thrown in for what you say
GULAG is where you're gonna stay

Grab that dissident right off the street
Ball with a chain, tie right onto his feet
Make him work here all day long
You know that up here it's the midnight sun
Out in the cold Siberia way (brrrrrr)
GULAG is where he's gonna stay

Labor camps in the Arctic cold
The GULAG archipelago
Millions dead on the tundra grass
Joe Stalin did it like that

Sun's comin' up and the food line grows
You'll be lucky with a chicken bone (chicken bone)
You and me just workin' like slaves
On the outside are brown bears to brave (good luck)
No escapin', don't even try
GULAG is where you're gonna [gunshot]


Labor camps in the Arctic cold
The GULAG archipelago
Millions dead on the tundra grass (that's right)
Joe Stalin did it like that

(You know who I'm talking about)
