Proplachennaya pesnya (Проплаченная песня)

Вот и настало время признаний...
Здесь никто не удивится сильно:
Здесь каждый видел своими глазами
Почём сегодня протест в России!
 
Нельзя просто так взять и не любить государство:
В своем стремлении заботиться о нас оно не знает пощады!
Чтобы нас отвлечь от нищеты, безработиц и пьянства -
Оно для нас построило такую Олимпиаду!
 
Припев:
Эта песня проплачена кем-то сверху - инфа 146%!
Эта песня проплачена кем-то сверху - инфа 146%!
 
Куплеты этой песни завещал проплатить Березовский
Спецом по заказу своих американских хозяев!
Смотрите, как с экранов опять завопил Жириновский
О том, что мы дружки проституток из Pussy Riot!
 
Нельзя просто так взять и не любить патриарха!
Глаза его честны как казино на территории храма!
Голос его как ручей; его кожа, как бархат!
Воистину он велик, как Олимпиада!
 
Припев:
Эта песня проплачена кем-то сверху - инфа 146%!
Эта песня проплачена кем-то сверху - инфа 146%!
 
"Элизиум"и "Порнофильмы" здесь у микрофона
1
Мы чистосердечное признание спешим оформить!
Вы не в курсе? Инфа 146%:
Нам за эту песню нормально заплатили сверху!
 
Даже беспризорникам, бомжам и инвалидам ясно:
Здесь недовольных нет и с режимом нет несогласных!
Здесь все так рады, а значит, большего не надо -
Лишь бы каждый год проводили Олимпиаду!
 
Припев:
Эта песня проплачена кем-то сверху - инфа 146%!
Эта песня проплачена кем-то сверху - инфа 146%!
Эта песня проплачена кем-то сверху - инфа 146%!
Эта песня проплачена кем-то сверху - инфа 146%
 
  • 1. В концерной версии: "Привет! В прямом эфире "Порнофильмы" у микрофона!"

A song for sale

Time has come for a confession.
It won't come as a surprise to anyone.
It will be plain for everyone to see
that protesters in Russia are bought and sold1
 
You simply can't take a dislike to the State,
it strives to care for us with such an utter ruthlessness!
To alleviate our poverty, unemployment and drunkenness problems,
it has held this magnificent olympiad2 for us!
 
(chorus)
This song has been paid for by foreign agents - no BS3
This song has been paid for by foreign agents - no BS
 
Each verse of this song has been paid with Berezovsky's money,
on special order from his American masters!
Look at the screen, see this Zhirinowsky guy bawling
about us befriending these Pussy Riot sluts?
 
You simply can't take a dislike to the patriarch,
his gaze is as honest as a casino in a church backyard!
His voice is like a stream, his skin is like velvet,
in truth he is as great as this very olympiad!
 
(chorus)
This song has been paid for by foreign agents - no BS
This song has been paid for by foreign agents - no BS
 
Hi there! Elysium and Pornofilmi live on the mike!
We're there to humbly confess our crimes!
You got it? That is no bullshit!
We were paid decent money by the traitors for this song.
 
It's obvious even to orphans, hobos and cripples:
no dissatisfaction whatsoever, and no opposition to the regime!
Everybody is so happy here, what more could be needed?
Except to hold the olympics every year, maybe.
 
(chorus)
This song has been paid for by foreign agents - no BS
This song has been paid for by foreign agents - no BS
This song has been paid for by foreign agents - no BS
This song has been paid for by foreign agents - no BS
 
  • 1. In a tradition dating back from Stalin, one of the main ways to discredit opponents in Russia is to spread gossips about them being paid by "foreigners" or "traitors"
  • 2. Sochi, 2014
  • 3. lit. "that's 146% certain" refers to the total number of voters for the parliament elections of 2011 in Russia, that became a symbol of distrust for the regime and its way of implementing democracy.
    The Russian says "paid by someone from above"
This translation does not claim to be of any particular value.
Glad if you liked it, sorry if you didn't.
You can reuse it as you please.
Glad if it's for knowledge or understanding, sorry if it's just for money or fame.

Нельзя просто так взять и не любить патриарха!
You cannot simply (merely) fall out of love [favour] with the Patriarch.
The same applies to the state. Wink smile

Ah well, again I was tempted to do a nice sentence and forgot to read the Russian properly. Sorry.
Does it sound better now?

Brat    Kedd, 24/10/2017 - 15:52

Well, "You simply can't take a dislike to" a comment, so I'd say now it sounds much better. Teeth smile
