Mr Putin

Mr Putin, go rest upon your pillow
But don't forget to wash the blood off your hands
Say good night to that man in the mirror
He's about the only one who understands
 
Why you raised your sons to be butchers
Why your tanks roll over dignity
Why you think you're some kind of a hero
While you're a shame to humanity
 
Chorus:
But you can run around and bark
Like a mad dog in the dark
But you never will escape your destiny
Cause when it's time to meet your fate
You'll find they locked the Pearly Gates
And that Saint Peter threw away the key
 
Mr Putin, don't care about the people
Who have died because you want them to
Don't pity the many helpless children
And that mother's heart that you broke in two
 
Mr Putin, Jacob's Ladder is waiting
For you to die and when you're on your way
The flowers will bloom again in springtime
And the sun's gonna shine every day
 
Chorus:
But you can run around and bark
Like a mad dog in the dark
But you never will escape your destiny
Cause when it's time to meet your fate
You'll find they locked the Pearly Gates
And that Saint Peter threw away the key
And that Saint Peter threw away the key
 
Thanks!

In the chorus, I think it's "they've locked the Pearly Gates"

And I think it's "mad dogs" running around in the dark and barking. As much as I'm used to russians being called orcs in Ukraine ;-)

Yep, perfectly right, that was a typo on my part. And I think it's "Pearly Gate" , not "Gates"?

"Gate" surely rhymes better with "fate", but it sounds like there's something of an s-sound after "Pearly Gate", intentional or not.

I don't think the lines of the 2nd stanza should end in question marks, because I think they are a continuation of the last line of the 1st stanza, and they just describe what he understands.

I'd love to know what Zelensky says at the end?

He said: Do prove you indeed are Europeans and then life will win over death. Light will win over darkness. Glory to Ukraine

I don't know what they've done to his voice in the video that it sounds so strange. I can't get the beginning of what he says, but afterwards I think it's "Life will prevail over death, and light will prevail over darkness. Glory to Ukraine!".
