Russia, Russia (Lay That Missile Down): Prescott Reed [1958]

An amusing song written by folk artist Tom Glazer that seeks to find common ground with the Soviets before they use their missile!

LYRICS/TRANSCRIPTION:
Russia, Russia (Lay That Missile Down): Prescott Reed [1958]

Russia, Russia, lay that missile down
Russia, Russia, must you always frown?
Donít get tough now, thatís enough now
Russia, Russia, lay that missile down
Russia, Russia, love that samovar
And your blintzes, borscht and caviar
And your music, and your dancing
Russia, Russia, lay that missile down

Weíll compete with you in any sport
Be glad to meet with you and have a snort
Come to a movie, or a ballgame
And listen to Van Cliburn when he plays Tchaikovsky
Russia, Russia, lay that missile down
Come and visit us in our home town
Have some Wheaties, donít be meanies
Russia, Russia, lay that missile down

Weíll compete with you in any sport
Be glad to meet with you and have a snort
Come to a movie, or a ballgame
And listen to Van Cliburn when he plays Tchaikovsky

Russia, Russia, lay that missile down
Come and visit us in our hometown
Have some Wheaties, donít be meanies
Russia, Russia, lay that missile down
