Lyrics of Leningrad

Viktor was born in the spring of fourty four
And never saw his father anymore
A child of sacrifice a child of war another son who never had a father after Leningrad
Went off to school and learned to serve the state
Followed the rules and drank his vodka straight
The only way to live was drown the hate
A Russian life was very sad and such was life in Leningrad
I was born in fourty nine a cold war kid in McCarthy time
Stop 'em at the thirty eightth parallel blast those yellow reds to hell
And cold war kids were hard to kill
Under their desk in an air raid drill
Haven't they heard we won the war
What do they keep on fighting for
Viktor was sent to some Red army town
Served out his time became a circus clown
The greatest happiness he'd ever found
Was making Russian children glad
And children lived in
Leningrad
But children lived in Levittown
And hid in the shelters underground
Until the Soviets turned their ships around
And tore the
Cuban missiles down
And in that bright October sun we knew our childhood days were done
And I watched my friends go off to war
What do they keep on fighting for
And so my child and I came to this place
To meet him eye to eye and face to face
He made my daughter laugh then we embraced
We never knew what friends we had
Until we came to Leningrad
