Un pinguino en mi ascensor - Perestroika (English translation)

English translation

Perestroika

You know it didn't make me happy that the cops came
why you insist in telling it was all my fault
since they depoted you to Siberia
I live in the greatest misery.
It's not easy to take care of the children al alone
skating over the Volga I broke my teeth yesterday
Dimitri, get the Vodka out, I'll have a drink
I don't wanna play Doctor Zhivago anymore.
 
Come home now...
 
For you there were no more five year plans
your habits became totally western
you spent our rubles on the Red Square
buying to the tourists products of La Toja1
You were spending the day reading those magazines
the neighbours denounced your capitalistic vices
I'll never forgive to the sixth floor chubby
her happiness face when the KGB came.
 
Come home now...
 
It's hard to work in this kolkhoz
in the last months I have a cough
maybe the weather is too hostile
the doctor advices me to move to Chernobil.
 
You know it didn't make me happy that the cops came.
