Ah, dear Vanya! I walk around the Paris - And what I hear and what I see - I write in my little notebook, just after the impressions, When I become old I will edit a book. About that you and me, Vanya, are as needed in Paris as the pliers are needed in the bath. All the emigrants are here of the second generation, there is a lot of misunderstandings with them They confuse everything - names of people and places, And you Vanya would be "Vaniya" here. And in general, Vanya, you and me are as needed in Paris as the skis are needed in Russian bath! I started a fair with the French lady, and my friends are Piere and Jean now And I can spit from the Tour Eiffel on the heads of careless Parisians! About that you and me, Vanya, are as needed in Paris as the pliers are needed in the bath. Our spreading over the planet is very noticeable far away from home: there are inscriptions in Russian in the public bathroom in Paris! And in general, Vanya, you and me are as needed in Paris as the skis are needed in Russian bath!
