Let It Burn

Drip-drop the tears onto my dress of chintz
And may he will not come to me this night in dreams
And may he doesn't walk by my side, doesn't seek me with his gaze
in the crowd...
 
Let burn your photo,
Everything that you've given me, let it burn
I won't be missing you
Let burn your photo,
Everything that you've given me, let it burn
I want to shout loud
 
How? How long should I suffer?
How long should I not sleep
And not do my homework?
Mom and dad are shocked,
For I had always been doing my homework very well,
always getting "A" for that!
 
Let burn your photo,
Everything that you've given me, let it burn
I won't be missing you
Let burn your photo,
Everything that you've given me, let it burn
I want to shout loud
 
Let burn your photo,
Everything that you've given me, let it burn
I won't be missing you
Let burn your photo,
Everything that you've given me, let it burn
I want to shout loud
 
Thanks!

Author's comments:

Valentin Strykalo (actually this is a fake name) is Ukrainian parody singer, who makes the fun parodies of pop-singers and popular music "trends". So all the songs of him should be considered as a joke.
For example this song is a parody of teen-girls' rock, maybe partly of an emo-rock Wink smile

""Let burn the everything"" doesn't sound right. Maybe: everything that you've given me, let it burn. I could be wrong, but let it burn.

А он же вроде стрЫкало- т.е. должно быть strykalo

Hey, overall good, but I'd make some changes:

Drip-drop the tears onto my chintz dress
And may he not come to me tonight in my dreams
And may he not walk by my side, not seek me with his gaze
in the crowd...

Let your photo burn,
Everything that you've given me, let it burn
I won't miss you
Let your photo burn,
Everything that you've given me, let it burn
I want to shout out loud

How? How long should I suffer?
How long should I not sleep
And not do my homework?
Mom and dad are shocked,
For I have always done my homework very well,
always getting "A" for that!

Let your photo burn,
Everything that you've given me, let it burn
I won't miss you
Let your photo burn,
Everything that you've given me, let it burn
I want to shout out loud

Let your photo burn,
Everything that you've given me, let it burn
I won't miss you
Let your photo burn,
Everything that you've given me, let it burn
I want to shout out loud

The Russian lyrics for the chorus, after the first, are disorganized.

1st time, correct order

Гори твое фото,
Гори все что ты мне дарил
Я не буду скучать
Гори твое фото
Гори все что ты мне дарил,
Я хочу закричать

2nd time, incorrect order

Гори твое фото,
Гори все что ты мне дарил
Я хочу закричать
Гори твое фото
Гори все что ты мне дарил,
Я не буду скучать

Giving credit where it's due, the author did write it correctly the first time but messed up after that.
