In memoriam: Ivan Susanin

Lyrics MUST include reference to Susanin (
so "The Song about Susanin" written in 1836 couldn't be included =)

The name "Susanin" has become an ironic cliché in the Russian language for a person who leads somewhere claiming to know the way, but who eventually proves not to.

Форест, форест, форест...
Энималс, энималс, энималс...
Винтер, винтер, винтер...
Он зе мидл оф зе роуд стейс Иван Сусанин. Немецко-фашистская гидра камс.
- Вань, Вань, вилл ю телл аз зе вей ту зе Москов-сити?
- Ай донт кнов, -сэйд Иван Сусанин.
- Вань, Вань, ви шал гив ю мэни долларс!
- Ай донт кнов, -сэйд Иван Сусанин.
- Вань, Вань, ви шал гив ю мэни рублз!
- Ай донт кнов, -сэйд Иван Сусанин.
- Вань, Вань, ви шал кил ю к чертовой матери!
- Перхопс пробабли!!!
Энд зей кил хим.
Иван Сусанин из зе нешнл хироу оф зе Совьет Юнион!!!

So you choose to lead through the woods instead of collaboration  Wink smile

Thanks, KP was suggested above. I will add in a day or two. It is not on LT.

Они матерятся через слово. Может и не стоит эту песню добавлять...

I'm afraid it was sandring's tongue-in-cheek suggestion (based upon pur previous discussion of profanity on LT).
But i could add suggested by...  Teeth smile

I didn't listen to the song. It's for your consideration.

Thanks, Evgeniy, but I've decided to implement strict rules there - see Collection description.
I'm sure there are plenty of pop songs we know well, but we forgot them. So let's be on alert for Susanin's lyrics.
