Как лицо у Кузьмича (German translation)


Как лицо у Кузьмича

Как лицо у Кузьмича
Явно просит кирпича.
А душа у Кузьмича
Явно просит первача.

Hein bat mich um einen Stein

Hein bat mich um einen Stein,
Doch er sagte 's nur zum Schein.
Denn im Herzen wollte Hein
Einfach nur besoffen sein.

Dear St. Sol, thank you so much for all these Chastushki.! It's a lot of fun! Today I have bought a book about Russian slang, so I hope, my translations become better.

I like to use this site when there is a Russian word I didn't know, didn't know, didn't know and forgot. Lol.
