I was the highest grade fitter,
I used to throw my pay to the wind, -
I was getting paid as much as I needed-
And plus a bonus every quarter pulled in.
If you drink, - you know yourself -
A person must have something of his own, -
Well, and beside my bride in Ryazan,
I have two sluts in Moscow - I know.
To Ryazan - parcels and letters Iíve sent
And to the sluts- myself and wine, -
Every evening- the same punishment,
And all night- the same torture of mine.
I can see, that my health disappear,
At work - all my products is defect, itís a mess, -
All my strength not enough, not even near -
And plus bonuses every quarter, I guess.
On my mug wrinkles and bruises appeared, -
And then Iíve told them without a sound:
Get lost, both of you - my health is more dear, -
Go and find some other marks around!...
If you only new, how much better I felt,
How wonderful - I wish that anyone could see:
I drink away all the wages myself -
And plus quarterly bonus Iíve received!
