lyrics

Hey Mr Andropov
I have been thinking of
your new job.
The Russians are worrying,
there's nuclear scuffling,
Sob Sob Sob.
Secretary Andropov
What have you been thinking of
to sort out this tiff?
Peace and tranquility,
Yours with sincerity,
Sammy Smith x
Twinkle twinkle ball of flame,
Send one back from whence it came.
We've got bombs, we've got planes
- grown up toys for grown up games.
Thanks for your letter Sam,
It's not the first one man.
Here is my honest reply.
We don't like war much here,
Lenin made that clear so
don't be too scared of the sky!
Soviet people don't like war
(We've been there before 40 years ago!)
We won with some help from you
but now we are a part of the nuclear crew.
Sammy...Sammy...Know the Truth
Come to Artek meet our youth.
Twinkle twinkle ball of flame,
Send one back from whence it came.
We've got bombs, we've got planes
- grown up toys for grown up games.
We lost this cub to a doomed plane
It crashed down in a field in Maine.
