    Viktor was born in the spring of ´44
    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 down the hate
    A Russian life was very sad
    And such was life in Leningrad

    I was born in ´49
    A cold war kid in McCarthy time
    Stop ´em at the 38th 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
