This cartoon reminded me of a song called "The ABC's of dead Russian leaders"    ( Andropov! Brezhnev, Chernenko )  — Tom Cavanagh

With all the news that there is today
It's hard to keep it all inside my brain
Big Russian guys are droppin' like flies
How can I remember all of their names?
Now there's help, it's a brand new game
It's the ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders
The ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders

When you hear the letter 'A'
Andropov is the name to say
The letter 'B' is next in line
Brezhnev's dead, so he'll do just fine
'C' is for Chernenko
It's the ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders
The ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders

'A' they're Atheistic
'B' they're Big shots
'C' they're Communistic
'D' they're Dead

They were Russian in mind, rushin' towards death
They read Russian books, they wore Russian dressing
It's hard to fathom 'cause I'm a foreigner
Excitement there is just around the coroner
He's got a file drawer that's marked
The ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders
The ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders

'A' they hate Apple pie
'B' they hate Baseball
'C' they like Coolidge, 'cause he's dead, too

Ooh, Constantine, Yuri
Just that like that, they were gone in a hurry
Before them, there was Leonid
His name was hard to rhyme until he started bein' dead
Gorbachev thinks he's home free
Because his name doesn't start with 'D'
But it's my game, I can change it if I want to
I can make it the ABCGs, yeah

When you hear the letter 'A'
Andropov is the name to say
The letter 'B' is next in line
Brezhnev's dead, so he'll do just fine
'C' is for Chernenko
It's the ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders
The ABCs of Dead Russian Leaders
The ABCs of Dead Dead Dead Dead Dead Dead Dead Dead
Russian Leaders
