Bobrovaya Pesenka (Бобровая песенка)

Мы воздвигаем-создаем
Мы строим чудо-водоем
Он будет самый, самый лучший.
И Мы даем и мы даем
И мы даем, Добро даем
Назло, назло породе щучьей!
 
И над водой и под водой,
И над водой и под водой,
Бобры везде, везде известны
Своей душевной добротой
Своей душевной добротой
Своею бобростью телесной!
 
И нам бобрятам благодать
И нам бобрятам благодать
Не будет горя , ни напасти
Мы будем щук сюда впускать
Мы будем щук сюда впускать
С большим намордником на пасти!
 
Идти со злою щукой в бой
Я понял, нужно всей семьей!
Вперед, вперед! Зовите трубы!
Еще вокруг немало щук,
Еще вокруг немало щук,
А щука это, это -зубы!
Еще вокруг немало щук,
А щука это,
Щука это -зубы!

Beaver Song

We will build and construct
We'll build a miraculous pond
It will be the best, the best of all time
And we give, and we give
And we give, o yes we give
Spite to the breed of pikes (1)
 
And on the water, and below the water
And on the water, and below the water
Beavers are known, are known everywhere
Their spirit of kindness
Their spirit of kindness
Their embodied beaverlyness (2)
 
And thanks to us beavers
And thanks to us beavers
There'll be no grief and no misfortune
We will let the pike right in
We will let the pike right in
With a big muzzle on the mouth
 
To go to war with the wicked pike
I understand, we'll need the whole clan !
Charge forward, call for the pipers
There's still so many pike around
There's still so many pike around
And pike, and pike, have sharp teeth (3)
There's still so many pike around
And pike they
Pike they have sharp teeth
