The Lyrics

The following song was a staple of the underground Gulag rock scene of the late Stalinist era. It may have been some sort of sarcastic "tribute" to beets ... but, hey, with Russians ya just can't be sure
The beets go in; the beets go in
Gums keep pounding a flavor to the brain
Vlad de da de dee; Vlad dee da de daa

Kulak greed was once the rage, uh uh
Komrade Steel* has turned the page, uh huh
A sewer rat's the latest thing, uh huh
Mixed in with beets our latest fling, uh huh

And the beets go in, the beets go in
Gums keep pounding a flavor to the brain
Vlad de da de dee; Vlad de da de daa

In treatment centers we're confined, uh huh
Brutal guards do break our minds, uh huh
The inmates keep on shuffling out for borscht
Surreptitiously, we beg the guards for morscht

And the beat go on; the beatings go on
Guards keep pounding a truncheon to the spine
Vlad de da de dee; Vlad de da de daa

Babooshkas beat our BACKS with their batons
Comrades begging guards for some smyetan*
Guards keep whipping us faster thru the line
Cell mate asks, "Hey, can I have some rat with mine."

And the beets go in; the beets go in
Gums keep pounding a flavor to the brain
Vlad de da de dee; Vlad de da de daa ...
The name Stalin is taken from "stal" which is Russian for steel ..... *A kind of sour cream that is frequently added to borscht

I can hear Boris Badanov singing this. I'd like to hear "morscht". You will laugh, or else!
