Words and Music by Arlo Guthrie

Too many women growing up wrong
Get an education thinking thoughts on their own
Making decisions telling men what to do
Look at the trouble that we're all going through
Russian girls could save the world

Here in America land of the free
Used to mean something to you and to me
You can't tell women what they really are for
Well then you ain't really free anymore
Russian girls could save the world

Meanwhile back in the U.S.S.R.
They're making women change tires on cars
Working in factories and incredible as it seems
They make them study gymnastics
And you know what that means!
Russian girls could save the world
