How can we tell that it was "dickhead" and not "dick"? Does "dickhead"
provide the words or the music or both?

_Khui_ is the word for "dick" in the relevant sense. But my very limited
experience is that Russiam GI-equivalents say things like "ia ne khuia ne
slyshu" = "I don't hear dick," "khui tebe v zhopu!" = "a dick for thee into
thine arse!" (= "fuck you!"?) and others equally irrelevant.

Where's Виктор, when we need him?

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
