The Lyrics

I wrote this one in August 1991 shortly after a failed Soviet attempt to reverse the Second Russian Revolution. The players include Soviet president and reformer Mikhail Gorbachev, Russian President Boris Yeltsin, who had his own "White House", and USSR Vice President, Gennady Yanayev, whom the hard-line Communists were backing. Story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_coup_attempt_of_1991. OS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KLVwRrCR3g
Mikhail’s quittin’ all the sudden.
He caught pneumonia, just like that.
Veep Yanayev, he’s taking over
With Gorby’s blessing.
Now if you’ll buy that…

I got some Ocean Front Property in Central Asia
With a clear view of the Baltic Sea.
I got some Ocean Front Property in Central Asia.
If you’ll buy that, I’ll throw the Kremlin in for free.

(instrumental break)

Tanks in Moscow are catchin’ muggers.
The curfew’s to control your brats.
We’ll guide Yeltsin from the White House
For his protection.
Now if you’ll buy that…

I got some Ocean Front Property in Central Asia
With a clear view of the Baltic Sea
I got some Ocean Front Property in Central Asia.
If you’ll buy that, I’ll throw the KGB in free.

..And Niki Khrushchev’s viewing Disney World with me.
Of course Central Asia is nowhere near the Baltic Sea. However, I've found out just now that the oceanless Central Asia is bordered on the west by the Caspian Sea, which has no inlets, very little salt, and is arguably a large lake. Go know.
