На мотив куплетов генерал-майора из оперетты "Пензанские пираты":

I am the very model of a modern Marxist-Leninist.

I'm anti-war, and anti-God and very anti-feminist;

My thinking's dialectical, my wisdom's undebateable,

When I negate negations they're undoubtedly negatable.

And yet I'm no ascetic - I'm always full of bonhomie

When lecturing to classes on the primitive economy;

And comrades all agree that they have never heard a smarter cuss

Explain the basic reasons for the slave revolt of Spartacus.

<Chorus)

Explain the basic reasons,etc.

I'm fierce and unrelenting when I'm extirpating heresies

Yet patient and forgiving to the comrade who his error sees;

In short, as a propagandist, agitator and polemicist

I am the very model of a modern Marxist-Leninist.

(Chorus)

In short, as a propagandist, agitator and polemicist

I am the very model of a modern Marxist-Leninist.

My love of Party history comes very close to mania.

I teem with information on the Bund in Lithuania.

My speech on the Decembrists is replete with fun and pleasantry.

I know the different stages in collectivising peasantry.

With Russian Social-Democrats I'm always glad to clench a fist

(While carefully distinguishing the Bolshevist and Menshevist);

But when I'm confronted with a regular Bukharinite

I get a rise in temperature (both centigrade and fahrenheit).

(Chorus)

He gets a rise in temperature, etc.

I know what Lenin said about the concept of the deity,

And why it's very dangerous to worship spontaneity.

In short, as a propagandist, agitator and polemicist

I am the very model of a modern Marxist-Leninist.

(Chorus)

In short, as a propagandist, agitator and polemicist

I am the very model of a modern Marxist-Leninist.

In fact when I begin to try to fight against bureaucracy

To criticise myself a bit, and practice more democracy,

And bringing Marx's teachings up to date I'm much more wary at,

And when I've done with phrases like "impoverished proletariat";

When I've learned that workers think that nothing can be sillier,

Than "monolithic unity" and biased Russophilia -

Then people will exclaim: "Hurrah! He's not a stupid sap at all!

A better Marxist-Leninist has never studied Capital!"

(Chorus)

A better Marxist-Leninist has never studied Capital!" etc

My policies and theories have an air of unreality

Because I am a victim of the cult of personality

But still, as propagandist, agitator and polemicist

I am the very model of a modern Marxist-Leninist.

(Chorus)

But still, as propagandist, agitator and polemicist

I am the very model of a modern Marxist-Leninist.
