And So, It Snows By Yevgeniy Yevtushenko, English by Vesper Lynd

And so, it snows, and so it snows

And everything is waiting for

In that snowfall, the quiet snow

I want everyone to know

 

My most significant human being

Come look and see what I have seen

That snow had been so sparkly clean

As these words I truly mean

 

Who brought my love to me so close?

Perhaps, it was the Santa Claus.

When I am with you in this glow

I’m grateful for the snow

 

And so, it snows, and so it snows

And all the things set sparks and flow

For happy moments that I know

I want to thank the snow

I want to thank the snow

I want to thank the snow

I want to thank the snow

I want to thank the snow

Lonesome Accordion by M.Isakovsky and B.Mokrousov, English by Vesper Lynd

Quiet town at night is so comforting

Doors won’t squeak, no more lights that are lit

Just a lonesome accordion wandering

Somewhere far away down the street

 

Accordionist12

 

It goes far in the fields through the gateway

Then it comes back to town again

Just as if it is asking for pity

And can’t find anyone to complain

 

Accordionist28

 

Night gets cooler, the darkness gets deeper

Apple blossom is white as the snow

Just come tell us who made you a weeper

The accordionist a young beau…

 

Accordionist29

 

May be your joy is not far away

Just not sure if she is the one

So then why are you wandering restless

Keeping young ladies piece so undone…

 

Accordionist36

 

Quiet city at night is so comforting

Doors won’t squeak, no more lights that are lit

Just a lonesome accordion wandering

Somewhere far away down the street

Advice from Guru by Valeriy Syutkin, English by Vesper Lynd

She-be-le-bu-bu-lu…

 

Guru9

 

When I was young and little my life was very simple

One morning I woke up and saw the Guru

He walked and wiggle – jiggled, not walked but flied and giggled

And easy breeze was carrying him through…

 

Waltz26

 

He said “Oh, hi! Hello! Yes, it’s me -hello!

 

Guru15

 

He revealed to me one simple ancient law:

 

Guru17

 

When things are going smoothly like a ballroom dance

Don’t rush into it, smile

Give it a chance

Stick to your own style and…

Enjoy the advance!

Е-е, е-е – wow!

 

Guru11

 

If weakness comes around, don’t you get lost!

Keep the waltzing tempo at any cost

Say to yourself “I am not

Getting turned and tossed!”…

 

Waltz15

 

(Тiтriririri -ta pa pi- rum -pa- pa -pa

Тiтriririri -ta pa pi- rum -pa- pa -pa)

 

Waltz24

 

From then on I am free

I live and eat and sleep

I walk, I breathe, lay down

I am standing upright

 

Guru16

 

That morning long ago I learned the law of flow

A simple rule from Guru to abide by

I am saying: ”Hi! Hello! This is me, hello!”

That is all, it’s not a secret at all!

The Iconic ‘I Am The Real Deal’ by Valeriy Syutkin, English by Vesper Lynd

High

In the sky

From the cloud of your beauty you don’t see me

 

Happy8

 

But hey,

May I say

The night is underway and you will get to know me

 

Perv40

 

Maybe I am nobody today,

Your friends keep saying that I’m leading you astray,

But –

 

Perv42

 

Give me this one day, give me this one night

Give me just one chance and you will see –

I am the real deal…

 

Perv18

 

Give me this one day,

Give me this one night

Give me a chance and I will make you feel

What is surreal…

You

Do not view

Me as anybody rich or the awe-inspiring

 

Without You17

 

 

Very well…

I can tell –

No offence – but to me it’s just too funny

 

Without You4

 

Maybe I am nobody today…

Your friends keep saying that I’m leading you astray,

But –

Give me this one day, give me this one night

Give me just one chance and you will see – I am the real deal…
