Mussolini vs. Stalin

Had Greg Brown been from the Ukraine instead of Iowa, he might have written this enigmatic little song, performed acoutically by Gogol Bordello. If anyone can translate the graffitti in the video, let me know.

Mussolini was a-shavin’, whistlin’ Tarantella,
Stalin was keeping eye on barbeque
When their fish line bell started to jingle,
Mussolini caught a-nothin’, Stalin caught two

You know my friend, It’s a kind of pretty,
Said Josef Stalin and loosened up his straps
Mussolini turn to him, with a restling glitter
Mussolini turn to him, and then, then he said: Yah!

Update 1/21/08: Original YouTube is no longer. The replacement is by Galucucu, who I know nothing about other than they are from Sao Paulo and sing mostly in languages I do not understand.
