The Lyrics

The Capitol Steps came out with a version of this song last summer, but the recent events in Ukraine demand an update.
Have you seen the Ukraine news
Putin's really lit a fuse
Through Crimean thoroughfares
With tank muzzles in the air

Jack boots and stiff-board collars
Gun butts and lots of maulers
Invasion ain't a crime,
It's a wonderful time!

Now, if you're Red
And you don't know where to shoot lead
Why don't you go where Ukraine sits
Putin on the blitz

Bloody types who knock a foe off
Troops with stripes and Kalashikovs
Perfect fits
Putin on the blitz

Dressed up like a shirtless evil goblin
Trying hard to look like Joseph Stalin
Now he's haulin'

Come, lets mix where army fellahs
Walk with sticks or bayonetahs
In their mitts
Putin on the blitz

(short instrumental break)

Tips his hat just like a commie chappie
To reclaim Ukraine makes him happy
What the crappy?

You'll declare it's simply topping
To be there and hear guns popping
Til Ukraine quits
Putin on the blitz

Very nice job utilizing the complex internal rhyme structure of the OS.

The title switch is a natural. I've done a couple "Putin on a Blitz"es.
