Песня про зайцев (Pesnya prо zaitsev)

В тёмно-синем лесу
Где трепещут осины,
Где с дубов-колдунов
Облетает листва,
На поляне траву
Зайцы в полночь косили
И при этом напевали
Странные слова:
 
А нам всё равно,
А нам всё равно,
Пусть боимся мы
Волка и сову,
Дело есть у нас —
В самый жуткий час
Мы волшебную
Косим трын-траву.
 
А дубы-колдуны
Что-то шепчут в тумане,
У поганых болот
Чьи-то тени встают.
Косят зайцы траву,
Трын-траву на поляне
И от страха всё быстрее
Песенку поют:
 
А нам всё равно,
А нам всё равно,
Пусть боимся мы
Волка и сову,
Дело есть у нас —
В самый жуткий час
Мы волшебную
Косим трын-траву.
 
А нам всё равно,
А нам всё равно,
Твёрдо верим мы
В древнюю молву:
"Храбрым станет тот,
Кто три раза в год
В самый жуткий час
Косит трын-траву."
 
А нам всё равно,
А нам всё равно,
Станем мы храбрей
И отважней льва !
Устоим хоть раз
В самый жуткий час --
Все напасти нам
Будут - "трын-трава"!

A Song About Forest Bunnies (Hell No - We Don't Care!)

Версии: #1#2#3#4#5#6
Late at night at full moon
Far away in the mountains
Where the oaks drop acorns
And tell the tales of the wild
Bunnies cut Magic Grass -
Heavy rough in the forest,
Singing rather disillusioned
Weird catchy rhyme:
 
"Hell no - we don't care,
Hell no - we don't care!
We had seen the bear,
The owl and "Bad-Ass".
We have business plan
Doing what we can -
We are cutting
The magic forest grass!"
 
And the bears are close,
All the wolfs are around,
Gnarly foxes are near
What's at stake is so high...
Bunnies keep cutting grass -
Heavy rough in the forest
All sketched out and singing faster
Weird catchy rhyme:
 
"Hell no - we don't care,
Hell no - we don't care!
We had seen the bear,
The owl and "Bad-Ass".
We have staying power
In the toughest hour
We are cutting
The Magic Forest Grass!"
 
"Hell no - we don't care,
Hell no - we don't care!
We're aware - wolves are there,
And kick ass!...
Braver we will be
When on "one, two three..."
We stay put and
Cut the freaking Grass!"
 
"Hell no - we don't care,
Hell no - we don't care!
We had seen the bear,
The owl and "Bad-Ass".
We have staying power
In the roughest hour -
We are cutting
The Magic Forest Grass!"

I grew up with this song, and listening to it as a little girl I just thought that this was a song about overcoming one's own fears, being strong and tough and having one's job/work/chores done while being highly aware of the close presence of natural enemies :-) The comedian actor Yuri Nikulin who originally performed this song was unbelievably popular, very much loved and still is a household name in Russia.
* I asked around and decided to avoid the word "weed"... I think "grass" is a more generic name even if you'd like to make this a song about "weed" and getting "stoned" as well as to see a parallel to the "weed industry" which is... legal in selected states, while being still illegal ... on the Federal level? Poetry and art are such that different people can find something they can relate to... So there you go! The original song had the bunnies cutting the "Magic Grass", which can be anything really - anything of value that is in an abundance and needs to be processed for profit, requires manpower and long hours, and at some point it becomes "too much" to even care about "what's what"... except you feel the need to stick to the task and have the project done in order to get paid.
