Sektor Gaza - Durak (Дурак) (English translation)

English translation

Fool

I'm a very modest guy,
I'm a very quiet guy,
Generally when I'm sober - I'm absolutely standard,
But often I act beastly, often I go nuts,
As soon as I've drunk a bottle of pig sweat.
 
(REF)
If there was, if there was no wine,
If the devil wouldn't have invented Vodka
If it were not for vodka, I wouldn't lie on a bunk bed
After all, when I'm drunk, I'm a complete criminal.
 
I caress the girls, kiss and hug them,
I even give them flowers, a classy chap when sober
I humiliate the bitches, completely annihilate them
And rip off their breasts, when I'm a stupid drunk
 
(REF)
 
I respect my friends, I don't break the law,
I don't mind the old folks, when sober - It's all good!
But better hide your pigs, forget all your tricks,
And leave right away, otherwise it's all over
 
(REF)

Барматуха - is a home made brew. It very poor quality. Do you know, why it called "barmatukha"? Barmotat' is to talk gibberish or whisper. That's what happens to you when you drink barmatukha. As soon as I will empty dry big bottle of barmatukha.

It's a slang and not so old one. I think it started when Gorbachev tryed to stop people drink to much alcohol. Good try! One thing though stuck in my mind. Many years ago I have took a three day bus tour to Paris from Berlin. The bus was full with German tourists. I've never seen Russians drink as much as those Germans. One more thing I remember from that trip is when we went to the restaurant for a free dinner they have drunk so much wine and even poured a lot for their children becouse it was free. I think some Germans can give Russians a good competition

if you wanna see some really nasty germans you gotta go to the Ballermann (Mallorca) in summer. Berlin ain't too bad either.

Как только бормотухи я высажу баллон. -> As soon as I've drunk a bot of pig sweat.
И старых почитаю, я трезвый — молодец, -> I esteem the aged, when sober - It's all good!
'Cause the verb "почитать" here has nothing in common with reading... Regular smile

stanza 1 last line. do you mean "bit" of pig sweat. is that a typo ?

No, "bot" is a shortening of "bottle". It's a slang word, you may use any synonym of your choice. Wink smile
