Try staying in the police skin for a day, The life will seem to you the other way round. Letís drink to those who work in police, Those working in police, donít drink at all. But at the neighboring table thereís a party, But at the neighboring table thereís merriment, And sheís not looking at me at all, Her neighbor is reading Yesenin to her. Try staying in the police skin for a day, The life will seem to you the other way round. Letís drink to those who work in police, Those working in police, donít drink at all. I understand well, that Tamara is smart, That she has a diploma and is ambitious. So, I poured the vodka into the fish tank. Dear fish, drink to my happy birthday. Try staying in the police skin for a day, The life will seem to you the other way round. Letís drink to those who work in police, Those working in police, donít drink at all.
