Rus (A Love Song for Vlad)
Tune: ďThe Moose SongĒ

I have known Norsemen and Mongols and Celts,
Barbarians wearing naught else but their pelts,
Frenchmen and Spaniards, Muslims and Gauls;
Then I met a Russian with really bigÖ shoulders.

Yes, heís Rus, Rus; I love a Rus.
Iíve never met anyone quite like my Rus.
If you offer another and tell me to choose,
The other will always lose out to my Rus.

As a worldly woman, Iíd venture to say
Iíd conducted my trysts in a most discreet way
And I never have acted the doxy or slut
Till I gazed on my Rus and his fine RussianÖ eyes.

Yes, heís Rus, Rus; I love a Rus.
Iíve never met anyone quite like my Rus.
If you bring me Mel Gibson, Iíll firmly refuse;
Braveheart himself canít compare with my Rus.

I vowed Iíd be single the rest of my life
And not met the man who could make me his wife.
But I knew Iíd stay with him through thin and through thick
When I first saw my Rus and his great, massiveÖ beard.

Yes, heís Rus, Rus; I love a Rus.
Iíve never met anyone quite like my Rus.
Heís big and heís gruff but heís never obtuse.
Iíll never love anyone else but my Rus.

This is my tale and I swear it is true.
And now there is but one thing I must do:
To give thanks to the gods in both story and song
For my Russian true love and his wondrousÖ sense of humor!

Yes, heís Rus, Rus; I love a Rus.
Iíve never met anyone quite like my Rus.
Some may find heaven with sheep, or a moose,
But Iíll look no further than my own dear Rus.
