Sting – Russians (Album Version)


It’s a lie we don’t believe anymore
There is no monopoly of common sense
Believe me when I say to you
How can I save my little boy
I don’t subscribe to this point of view
Reagan says we will protect you Mr.
If the Russians love their children too
To put the words in the mouth of the president
From Oppenheimer’s deadly toy
[Chorus 1]
I hope the Russians love their children too
What might save us me and you
There’s a growing feeling of hysteria

On either side of the political fence
In the rhetorical speeches of the Soviets
Regardless of ideology
[Verse 1]
We share the same biology
Is if the Russians love their children too
I hope the Russians love their children too
Believe me when I say to you

Conditioned to respond to all the threats
Regardless of ideology

I don’t subscribe to this point of view
[Verse 2]
[Chorus 2]
In Europe and America
Khrushchev said we will bury you Mr.

There is no historical precedent
There’s no such thing as a winnable war
We share the same biology
It would be such an ignorant thing to do
[Verse 3]
