London, Feb 20 (ANI): A song mocking Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has been chosen by neighbouring Georgia as its entry to the Eurovision Song Contest.

The song, 'We Don't Wanna Put In' was chosen by the country, which was invaded by Russia in a territory war last year, via a TV poll.

According to the Sun, the lyrics of the song continue as: "The negative move, it's killing the groove. You better change your perspective."

Viewers and a jury voted the song to represent them at the competition in Moscow in May.

However, Eurovision bosses might ban the songs, described by Georgia as "light-hearted," as it breaches rules about making political statements.

But Eurovision's decision will come after the March 16 deadline for entries.

Although Georgia originally planned to pull out of the contest in protest against last year's winner Russia, they later changed their minds and got Stefane Mgebrishvili to create the controversial song.
