Sektor Gaza - Avto-mat (Авто-Мат) (English translation)

Russian

Avto-mat (Авто-Мат)

Если буфер поцеловал капот,
Если передок от этого помят,
Если буфер разбил передний левый поворот,
Сразу раздаётся авто-мат.
 
Если ты бежал под красный свет,
Если грохнул свою рожу об асфальт,
Ты был сбит и тут удивительного нет,
И снова слышится проклятый авто-мат:
 
"В три кардана, в три цилиндра
В карбюратор в крестовину, в мать!"
 
Если тормознул инспектор ГАИ,
Если он закомпостировал права,
Если штраф, а деньги кровные твои,
То сразу слышен трёхэтажный авто-мат.
 
Если отказали тормоза,
Если бабку сбил, а ты не виноват,
Сама же влезла под колёса, коза!
И снова льётся по дороге авто-мат:
 
"В три кардана, в три цилиндра
В карбюратор в крестовину, в мать!"
 
(INTERLUDE)
 
Если по тебе проехал КАМаЗ,
И душа твоя отправилась вад,
А за тебя шофёру дали десять лет,
То за решёткой слышен громкий авто-мат.
 
Если дали монтировкой по лбу,
А коленвалом замочили прямо в зад,
Такую драку видел я в гробу,
Уж лучше льется безобидный авто-мат:
 
В три кардана, в три цилиндра
В карбюратор в крестовину, в мать!
 
В три кардана, в три цилиндра
В карбюратор в крестовину, в мааать!
 
В три кардана, в три цилиндра
В карбюратор в крестовину, в мааать!
 
А в три попа, в три бога,
В крест, в душу, в селезёнку, в сердце, в мать!

Automat

If the buffer has kissed the hood
If the front end is dented in from this (crash)
If the buffer broke the front left indicator
It's time to abide by the old rule (1)
 
If you ran a red light
When your face hit the asphalt
Someone cut into your lane, to no surprise
And again you hear the same old litany:
 
"By the three prop shafts, and three cylinders
By the carburator, by the cross, by your mother!
 
When the traffic cop pulls up in front of you
And has you pull over
Writes you a ticket, for your hard-earned money
You immediately hear the threefold "Automat"
 
When your brakes failed
When the granny fell, but you didn't even hit her
She climbed herself under your wheels, damnit!
Again the old story unfolds by the road:
 
"By the three prop shafts, and three cylinders
By the carburator, by the cross, by your mother!
 
(INTERLUDE)
 
When a heavy truck just overtook you
And your soul just went to hell
And because of you, the driver got ten years
Then behind the bars, you can hear the loud "Automat"
 
When your front end hit that guy's trailer
And your crankshaft is stuck right in his ass
Such a commotion I saw in the coffin
You better leave some curses, no offense!
 
"By the three prop shafts, and three cylinders
By the carburator, the cross, by your mother!
 
"By the three prop shafts, and three cylinders
By the carburator, the cross, by your mother!
 
"By the three prop shafts, and three cylinders
By the carburator, the cross, by your mother!
 
By the three popes, by the trinity
By the cross, the soul, the spleen, the heart, your mother!

(1) Even after translating the whole song I still don't know what "Automat" actually means in this context. but I hope you all understand the song! It's about russian road rage. One of the most intense spectacles in the whole world.

Here is a pun on the following:
мат=cuss[ing][word], авто=auto; автомат=automat
Сразу раздаётся авто-мат.->An auto-cuss immediately resounds
Если он закомпостировал права,->If he pierced your driver license (at that times driver licenses had a special section for penalty piercing, up to 5 times, as I remember)
Если дали монтировкой по лбу,->If your brow was hit by a tire lever
А коленвалом замочили прямо в зад,-> And a crankshaft is thrust right into your ass
Такую драку видел я в гробу,->I'm sick to death of such a fight

"By the three prop shafts, and three cylinders
By the carburator, the cross, by your mother! ->It'd be better to say "Dang the shafts, cylinders, carburetor...", and so on
