Lyrics:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Why_I_am_not_going_back_to_the_Soviet_Union

[Verse A]
Peaking through the iron curtain
You remember the good times
I'm all lost in the supermarket
Do you miss the bread lines?

[Verse B]
When your words were censored
The KGB and their tricks
Banned books banned the Beatles
Would you go back to the Bolsheviks?

[Chorus]
I don't want to go back
Now that I'm free
I was a prisoner
Now I'm a refugee

I don't want to go back
To the USSR
The hammer and sickle
The red and gold star

[Verse C]
Why would you be nostalgic
You forget the disappeared
Longing for a bygone era
When your leaders were feared

[Verse D]
You want weekends at the dacha
Want your stable well paying job
You might end up in Siberia
Fourteen years in a gulag

[Chorus]
I don't want to go back
Now that I'm free
I was a prisoner
Now I'm a refugee

I don't want to go back
To the USSR
The hammer and sickle
The red and gold star
[Exit]
