Thread Name: Lyr Req: 12 Days of Marxmas
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 12 days of marxmas
For anyone who might trip over this thread after six years or so here is another version of the "twelve Days of Marxmas" from the early seventies.

Remember that when this sung the order is reversed. Each stanza is added so that we finally end up with something like this.

On the Twelfth Day of Marxmas My Comrade gave to me:

Twelve Molotov Cocktails
Eleven Collective Farms
Ten Peoples' Armies Marching
Nine Works of Lenin
Eight Red Flags a Waving
Seven Migs a Flying
Six Party Purges

    Five Five-Year Plans

Four Manifestos
Three Stalin Tanks
Two Hand Grenades

    ... And an Icepick for Leon Trotsky
