So you're on the floor, at 54
Think you can last at the palace
Does your body go to the to and fro?
Tonight's the night, oh didn't you know

That Ivan meets G.I. Joe
Ivan meets G.I. Joe
Ivan meets G.I. Joe
Ivan meets G.I. Joe

He tried his tricks, that Ruskie bear
The United Nations said it's all fair
He did the radiation, he did the chemical plague
He could not win with a cossack spin

The Vostok Bomb, the Stalin strike
He tried every move, he tried to hitch hike
He drilled a hole like a Russian star
He made every move in his repertoire

When Ivan meet G.I. Joe
Ivan meet G.I. Joe
Ivan meet G.I. Joe
Ivan meet G.I. Joe

Ivan meet G.I. Joe
Ivan meet G.I. Joe
Ivan meet G.I. Joe
Ivan meet G.I. Joe

It was G.I. Joe's turn to blow
He turned it on cool and slow
He tried a pay phone call to the Pentagon
A radar scan a leviathan

He wiped the Earth clean as a plate
What does it take to make a Ruskie break?
But the crowd are bored and off they go
Over the road to watch China blow

Ivan meet G.I. Joe
Ivan meet G.I. Joe
Ivan meet G.I. Joe
Ivan meet G.I. Joe
