Увезу тебя я в тундру (Uvezu tebya ya v tundru) (English translation)

I'll Take You Away to Tundra

I'll take you away, away to tundra (a region in the north of Russia)
I'll take you away to the hoary snow,
I'll throw it (snow) to your feet
Like a white hide of a (polar) bear.
We'll hurry away to the end of the world
Across the crispy frost
And we'll loose ourselves far away
Amongst smoky snow piles.
 
Refrain:
We'll go, we'll race
The deer early in the morning (i.e. in a sled that is carried by the deer)
And we'll recklessly rush right into a snowy dawn!
You'll see that it's not correct to call the North "the Far North", you'll see that it's boundless (it's a wordplay: in Russian the Far North is called "The North on the edge" or "The North on the boundary", and he's saying that it's in fact boundless)
I'm giving it to you as a present.
 
I'll take you away, away to tundra,
I'll take you alone,
I'll wrap your shoulders
In the bright arctic lights.
Starry hoarfrost will burn
On your eyelashes like silver.
We'll collect as many gemstones
As you wish!
 
Refrain:
We'll go, we'll race
The deer early in the morning
And we'll recklessly rush right into a snowy dawn!
You'll see that it's not correct to call the North "the Far North", you'll see that it's boundless
I'm giving it to you as a present.
 
I'll take you away, away to tundra,
And then you'll understand all of a sudden
Why the Polar circle is luring and beckoning so much (the Polar circle is the frigid zone, where there's at least one 24-hour period when the sun is continuously above the horizon and at least one 24-hour period when the sun is continuously below the horizon annually)
It's not a problem that there are blizzards here,
The cold is not a worry.
If you fall in love with the North,
You'll never stop loving it.
 
Refrain:
We'll go, we'll race
The deer early in the morning
And we'll recklessly rush right into a snowy dawn!
You'll see that it's not correct to call the North "the Far North", you'll see that it's boundless
I'm giving it to you as a present.
 
Thanks!
