He Was A Son Of Northern Forests (Был он северных лесов сын)

English translation

He Was A Son Of Northern Forests

Enemy surrounded us - but don't look up,
We went on making our blades glisten.
There's only two of us that broke through,
Cut through and left for the steppe.
 
Underneath me there is a black Devil,
And under my friend an even blacker Smerch,
For those a chase doesn't count,
And the death can't keep up on the dust.
 
He was a son of northern forests,
And underneath us there was a steppe way,
And in his eyes the blue turns paler,
And his chest is pierced.
 
Suddenly the mirages appear,
And as suddenly they float away,
And that's when my friend fell off his horse,
And the night fell on us all at once.
 
And he says to me: "I wanted to drink,
I drank wind, even the pain of the suffering",
And he says to me: "I wanted to live,
Now live for the two of us, my friend.
 
You take my carbine, friend,
And the bundle off my chest, friend,
Let me stay here alone, friend,
Let me die, don't wake me friend."
 
But suddenly in the night's silence there's a ring,
And a clatter of a saddle,
There he woke, as from a dream,
My friend took his carbine in his hands.
 
And swaying he got on the horse, |
We galloped after the enemy, |
He, shooting on the go, sang |
And he laughed, would you cry. | 2 times
 
He was a son of northern forests,
And underneath us there was a steppe way,
And in his eyes the blue turns paler,
And his chest is pierced. | 3 times

Был он северных лесов сын

Окружил нас враг - не вскинь глаз,
Мы пошли клинками блестеть.
Только двое прорвалось нас,
Прорубились - и ушли в степь.
