The spring had barely started,
I felt so easy-hearted,
I thought Iíd leave the whole world in my dust;
Then came along two fellows,
In yellow, in yellow,
"Get dressed", they said to me, "and come with us."
I begged the sergeant, as I packed my things:
"Please donít take me away from the spring!"
Till May they kept on pressing
For me to start confessing,
For forty days, to "I donít know" I stuck;
Then came the sudden crusher,
When they arrested Masha -
And then I knew that I was outta luck.
