The Lyrics

Sorry, no "Star Wars" action here, just Putin putting on a show again ;-)
Putin’s appearance is a sight
A tough and brawny type
Making the news, fights bear and rides a horse
There’s no debating
Oh, he's countin' on views
Russian leader they adore

And he likes diplomacy
Got the West and UN deceived
Speaks monotone mild, except over Russian territory
Motherland Empire
Cold War era he loved, is willing to go to war

(Oh-no, here he comes) Watch out world he'll show you up
(Oh-no, here he comes) He's the Red Leader
(Oh-no, here he comes) Watch out world he’ll show you up
(Oh-no, here he comes) He’s the Red Leader

The Crimea is nothing new
He supports Red Army troops
Has upper hand, force ready and is UN veto smart
O’s threat a non-starter
Putin could care less ‘bout the President’s remarks

(Oh-no, here he comes) Watch out world he'll show you up
(Oh-no, here he comes) He's the Red Leader
(Oh-no, here he comes) Watch out world he’ll show you up
(Oh-no, here he comes) He’s the Red Leader

Oh,
(Oh-no, here he comes) Here he comes, Watch out world he’ll show you up
(Whoa-oh, here he comes. Watch out) He’s the Red Leader
(Oh-no, here he comes. He‘s the Red Leader) Oh, he'll show you up
(Oh-no, here he comes) Here he comes, He’s the Red Leader
(Oh-oh, here he comes. Watch out) Loves fear of Russian might, for show
(Oh-no, here he comes) Here she comes, he’s the Red Leader
(Oh-no, here he comes. He's the Red Leader) Just don‘t get him riled, Nyet
(Oh-no, here he comes) Here he comes. Watch out world, flag’s unfurled
(Oh-no, here he comes) Oh, watch out, watch out, watch out, watch out
(Oh-no, here he comes) Da, Da, he's the Red Leader
(Oh-no, here he comes. He‘s the Red Leader) There‘s no debating, West fools
(Oh-no, here he comes) Oh, he’s the Red Leader…

I'd like to give you 3 5's twice once for the parody itself and again for getting the awesome OS stuck in my head! :)

Thnx Jon, Hall & Oates is one of my favorite '80s bands and once you start thinking about those lyrics, they stick. I've done "Maneater" around 20 times now in 3 years. Working on another of theirs right now!
