Russians Lyrics

In Europe and America, there's a growing feeling of hysteria
Conditioned to respond to all the threats
In the rhetorical speeches of the Soviets
Mr. Khrushchev said we will bury you
I don't subscribe to this point of view
It would be such an ignorant thing to do
If the Russians love their children too

How can I save my little boy from Oppenheimer's deadly toy
There is no monopoly in common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

There is no historical precedent
To put the words in the mouth of the President
There's no such thing as a winnable war
It's a lie that we don't believe anymore
Mr. Reagan says we will protect you
I don't subscribe to this point of view
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology
What might save us, me, and you
Is that the Russians love their children too

As far as I understand this song doesn't preach for racism. It's criticizing nationalism and saying that we should not beat ourselves over a skin color, language or religion... we are all human being.

It's December 2018. This song has a great deal of meaning to me right now. I'm 72 years old. I have revisited many of Stings songs in the last few years. He is a true artist.

Believe, Russians do Love their children)I have the right to say so, as I am a Russian. And I fully agree with the lyrics. There is still a belief, that all the russians are communist lunatics...Lies.

My favourite lyrics. I think the negative comments of people who probably think this song is accusing them or their ideology are very foolish since this song is, I quote, Regardless of ideology!
Sérgio Resende October 8, 2010-9:30

When he says: Believe me... I hope the Russians love their children too... it's about the communist ideology and the mindset that the evolution of humankind is and can be achieved fast by communism!

I'm old enough to remember the Cold War and that is what this song is about. The names Reagan and Krushchev are a dead give-away. This song is intelligent in a very beautiful way. Thank you Sting.

i agree with ilikefun wow i must say you guys are fools cause if the russians loved their children then they wouldnt try & start a nuclear war thats what the song is talking about look up your history
Dr. Strangelove February 9, 2010-14:11

I wouldn't say, this is racist, it is against both sides, and I think the most important Line describes intelligently a very strange felling of threat, which we simply can't understand today anymore
