Good bye America, oh
Where I have never been
Take the banjo and
Play me goodbye

Became too small for me
We’ve been taught for so long
To love your forbidden fruit
Goodbye America, oh
Where I will never be
I promised you some weird Soviet cartoons, and here you go. This one is from 1978. It’s about a man and an alien finding contact through music. The Godfather theme song to be exact.
No translation needed. Enjoy this psychedelic gem.
