An Open Letter to Mr. Khrushchev

This song is by Don Meehan, features Viktor Jaanimets and appears on the compilation Atomic Platters: Cold War Music From the Golden Age of Homeland Security (2005).

spoken:
Russian man:
I am Viktor Jaanimets, since I fled Russian (unintelligible). In my new world I find peace and hope. I have a letter for Nikita Khrushchev, which my American friend will read:

American man:

Dear Mr. Khrushchev
I'm at peace now, peace with myself, peace with the world, and peace with my Maker
Did you ever stop to think of the meaning of the word "peace" Mr. Khrushchev?
It's a beautiful word with a beautiful meaning, but it can be spelled 2 ways
One, your way, is the way I was forced to spell it for many long years
The P is for the Persecution of every person or thing or body of people which stands in the way of Communism
The E is for the Evils brought about by Communism and the hate which is its driving force
The A stands for Atheism.There is no God where there is Communism, no moral law, no hope
And the C stands for the Confusion and Conflict between men
The E stands for the Earth, which Communism expects to conquer and spread its persecution, evils, atheism and conflict

But this is not the real meaning of peace, Mr. Khrushchev. I found a new and beautiful meaning. Millions and millions of people in the world spell it this way

First of all, the P stands for Prayer. I can get on my knees and pray to my Maker anywhere and anytime I desire now, just like all those other millions of free people can do
And the E stands for Equality. All men are created equal. They're endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights
And the A stands for Ashes to Ashes, dust to dust. Man came from dust and he shall return to dust, and he can do a lot of good during that time
And the C stands for Christmas. The lesson of Christmas is the greatest of all, and the simplest: Peace on earth to men of good will
And last of all is the E which stands for Eternity, where the soul of man goes on forever and ever. The Earth is like a grain of sand on the shore. Eternity goes on and on and on like the magnificent universe of the great Creator

Think about this Mr. Khrushchev, the real meaning of peace. Think about it
