Inside Folk Songs

La Guerra Fredda e le sue insidiose insidie raccontate con un umorismo molto yiddish...
I'm standing on the outside of your shelter, lookin' in
While the bombs are here a-droppin' everywhere.
Through the glass, you look so sweet and warm and safe and cosy...
Have I ever told you that I care?

Have I ever told you that you're beautiful
And it hurts me so that we are now apart?
Well, I'm standing on the outside of your shelter, dear...
But I hope I'm on the inside of your heart!
