Hello. I have listened to a song called "Moscow" from Rammstein and T.A.T.U, the chorus is sung in Russian and it says: Раз, два, три! Посмотри! Пионеры там идут песни Ленину поют Why did they use Раз, два, три instead of один? I have to make clear that the context is about the Soviet Union. The translation is supposed to be "one, two three", but I don't know if that Раз was a communist way to call people to work faster or it has to do with the Stalingrad battle. I am just guessing. Maybe it is just a word invented by T.A.T.U. Well, I hope that someone can explain it to me. Thanks in advance.
