I grew up like everybody with the gang in the backyard.
We drank Vodka, at nights we sang songs, -
And he didnít like me, that Seryoshka Fomin
Because he was so absorbed in himself.
Once we sat at Seryoshka Fominís -
We with him managed our meetings, -
And heard about that war has begun,
Molotov spoke to us in his famour speech.
At the war commissionershipís they said to me: "Old myn.
You produce tanks, the nativ manufactoring plant Compressors!"
I denied, - but Seryoshka Fomin
Spoke about the army, his father is a professor.
I shed blood for you, my country,
For all of you who take precedences of my heart:
I shed blood for Seryoshka Fomin -
But he sits and doesnít care about anything!
Now, he doesnít go to the cinema -
There will be a report about us before the performance, -
There should be at once Seryoshka Fomin
To conquer on the front the teutones
...But finally the war ended -
We liberated ourselves as if of a ton of burden, -
I met once again Seryoshka Fomin -
And he is a hero of the Soviet Union...
