RUSSIANS – ‘NEW VERSION’

Music is that wonderful ‘thing’ that says so very much, that which touches our senses and sensitibites in so many ways, that which teaches so many lessons.

Here’s the perfect example … Sting’s has released his song “Russians’ (Guitar/Cello Version)’ to Benefit Help Ukraine Center.

I’ll let the lyrics and music speak for themselves!

LESSONS LEARNED?

~~IN HIS OWN WORDS~~

“I’ve only rarely sung this song in the many years since it was written, because I never thought it would be relevant again,” Sting explained in a statement.

“But, in the light of one man’s bloody and woefully misguided decision to invade a peaceful, unthreatening neighbor, the song is, once again, a plea for our common humanity.

For the brave Ukrainians fighting against this brutal tyranny and also the many Russians who are protesting this outrage despite the threat of arrest and imprisonment –

We, all of us, love our children. Stop the war.”

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
Mister Krushchev said, “We will bury you
I don’t subscribe to this point of view
It’d 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 on 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 we don’t believe anymore
Mister 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
But what might save us, me and you
Is if the Russians love their children too
