Bass is tacet for the interlude and the following chorus
Lyrics to follow along

VERSE

So you're on the floor, at 54
Think you can last - at Le Palace
Does your body go to the to and fro?
But tonight's the night - or didn't you know
That...

CHORUS
Ivan meets G.I. Joe X4

VERSE II
He tried his tricks- that Ruskie bear
The United Nations said it's all fair
He did the radiation - the chemical plague
But 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

CHORUS

When Ivan meet G.I. Joe X4

INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE
(bass tacet)

CHORUS
(bass tacet)
Ivan meets G.I. Joe X4

VERSE III
Now it was G.I. Joe's turn to blow
He turned it on - cool and slow
He tried a payphone 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!

When Ivan meets G.I. Joe X4
