Though some would call this release a cynical ploy to capitalize on a geopolitical crisis, I would like to think of it as my contribution to the easement of Russian-American relations. Only through meaningful cultural and sexual exchange will we bridge our differences to an end. If you believe in world peace, then you will listen to this song. They’ll say I have no pride. I’m thinking Russian Bride.


They'll say I have no pride!
I'm thinking Russian Bride.

Blond hair, black roots
Short skirts and the knee-high leather boots
She'll be crazy, and she'll be hot
Will she love me? Probably not!

My heart is open wide
For a Russian Bride.
