16 BOOKS - SONG OF THE  PROPHET
           ISAAC D.

               (Tune: 16 Tons)

Sectarians say you can't write
  without poop, 
But a Russian Expert needs a scoop.
A Russian Expert has to beat the
  competition 
Or he finds himself in a sad position.

CHORUS;
You write 16 books and what do you
  get,
Not even a trip to Siberia yet.
Marx and Engels, don't you call me -
  'Cause I can't go.
I'm expecting a call from the
  Politburo.

I was born one morning in a Moscow
  purge,
That's where I got my expert's urge.
I was raised in a cave on the New
  York Times,
So I'm prone to excuse the Stalinists'
  crimes.

CHORUS:

I've tried to prove how the leader
  must swindle, 
That the bureaucrats share must grow
  not dwindle. 
If the workers and the peasants on
  me depend,
They'll surely get their's --
  In the end!
 

STALIN ANTHEM - BEFORE AND AFTER
 
  (Tune: You Are My Sunshine)

Before:
You are my Stalin, my only Stalin,
You make the sun rise every morn.
You were my hero, I am but zero.
Your passing has made me forlorn.

After;
You are psychotic, unpatriotic,
You were a viper and a snake.
You were Jehovah, but now that's
  over
And our leaders will no longer quake.

FOLLOW OUR COLLECTIVE LEADERS

     (Tune: Stay With God)

Nikita was a bureaucrat
He knew just what to do.
When Stalin said he had to dance
He jigged "Skip to My Lou".

He always laughed at Stalin's jokes
Then Joe was laid to rest.
But Khrushchev, he was still alive;
He who laughs last laughs best.

Save your hides, save your hides.
Niki made the grade all right;
Never led a faction fight.
Save your hides, save your hides;
Follow our collective leaders.
Save your hides.

So never judge our leaders wrong,
They were heroic men.
When Stalin told them all to squat,
They said "How much and when?"

They gladly purged their comrades
And kept their records clear.
They were true men of vision
And that's why they all are here.

Save your hides, save your hides.
You can be a bureaucrat.
Shut your mouths and you'll grow fat.
Save your hides, save your hides.
Follow our collective leaders.
Save your hides.
 

THE COLLECTIVEGRAD, ODESSA AND THE
      VLADIVOSTOK

You got to give that train the right
  of way,
It's heading from here to Siberiiay,
And it's going to leave at 8 o'clock,
On the Stalingrad, Odessa and the
  Vladivostok.
Oo-oo-oo, we got a change of line,
You better keep up the pace,
Oo-oooo oo-oo oo-oo-oo-oo
Russia has a new collective face,
So you better change all your
  arguments,
And forget all the obsolete documents
Or you'll soon be working on a pile
  of rock,
For the Collectivegrad, Odessa and
  the Vladivostok.
