Throw away boredom like the peeling of a melon, The sky is clear and the dreams are light. The lad had a horse and his fate Was interesting - before the war. Yes, in the war is like in the war, And before the war is like before the war, - Everywhere, in the whole universe. He rode quickly on the horse At the end of spring, at the end of spring - The last pre-war one. But the fog already captivated the dew, Hail fell on fields and dreams, - So that the clouds may pull away, The lad has to be exactly there. There - in the war is like in the war, And before the war is like before the war, - Everywhere, in the whole universe. He rode quickly on the horse At the end of spring, at the end of spring - The last pre-war one.
