The Musical collective Pussy Riot performed this song in the Moscow Cathedral

lyrics

Punk Prayer

Virgin Mary Mother of God
Put Putin away, Put Putin away

Black robe, epaulettes, all parishioners crawl to bow
Phantom of liberty is heaven, Gay pride banished to Siberia
KGB head’s your saint, leads protesters to jail
To please his holiness, Women must give birth and love

Virgin Mary Mother of God
Become an activist, Become a feminist
Virgin Mary Mother of God
Put Putin away, Put Putin away

Church’s kiss the dictator, Cross-bearers in black cars
Preacher teachers in the schools
Children must pay to play
Gundyaev believes in Putin, bitch you better believe in god
A chastity belt won’t stop the meetings this is a protest from the mother of God

Virgin Mary Mother of God
Become an activist, Become a feminist
Virgin Mary Mother of God
Put Harper away, Put Putin away

Adapted from,
Lyrics by Pussy Riot
