Song 19: "Samovar" - The Dreadnoughts

Samovar, you come to meet us via railway car
And have you really really come so far
You are the answer to
7 days of mortar, 20,000 men
Who won't be seen again
They're lying scattered in the

Russian pines
Where the mountains and the waters shine
Where a decent man can age like wine
You are the answer for

Mighty might motherland
Star of flashing white
You are rolling softly in the night
Until you reach the morning light

The samovar is ready boys
The samovar is here
The samovar is ready boys
We shall persevere

June 23, I took a bullet right above my knee
And oh the doctor gave me PCP
I spent a fortnight just
Lying on my back and staring at the sky
Now my head is high
And now it's time for them to die

In the sun
A 97 millimeter gun
And, oh, it is their fucking turn to run
For they have chased us from

Minsk out to Moscow
Volga to the Prut
Koba understood
So now everything is good

The samovar is ready boys
The samovar is here
The samovar is ready boys
We shall persevere

Sing! Samovar, you come to meet us via railway car
And have you really really come so far
You are the answer to

Mighty might motherland
Star of flashing white
You are rolling softly in the night
Until you reach the morning light

The samovar is ready boys
The samovar is here
The samovar is ready boys
We shall persevere
