It's pissing down with rain
The dogs they all do howl
Just beneath the surface, the faces all do scowl
Selling off an empire, they sell it by the pound
The Russians in the market square

Give him 15 Deutschmarks for an old red hat
He will sell you the coat off of his back
And he's looking handsome and he's looking sad
The Russian in the market square

The Russian in the market
The Russian in the market
The Russian in the market square

He'll tell you stories about his past
He'll tell you stories if you ask
And he's looking handsome and he's looking sad
The Russians in the market square

Yes, the Russian in the market
Yes, the Russian in the market
Yes, the Russian in the market square

Yes, the Russian in the market
Yes, the Russian in the market
The Russian in the market square

Yes, the Russian in Frankfurt Square
