Классик

Language: Russian (Русский)

Я прост, я ясен, я скромен, вежлив, я прекрасен.
Я плавен, важен, я в меру страстен,
Я чистый классик, я стыдлив,
Я чистый классик, я учтив.

Я злейший враг новейших ухищрений,
Заклятый враг всех нововведений;
Их шум и гам, их страшный беспорядок
Меня тревожат и пугают, в них гроб искусства вижу я.

Но я, я прост, но я, я ясен, я скромен, вежлив, я прекрасен.
Я чистий классик, я стыдлив,
Я чистий классик, я учтив.

Le classique

Language: French (Français) after the Russian (Русский)

Je suis clair, lucide et modeste, simple ; qu'on m'admire ;
limpide, grave, passionné, sans excès !
Un vrai classique, plein de tact,
Un parfait classique, fort poli.

Je hais les ingéniosités modernes !
Je fais la guerre à tous les novateurs.
Leur bruit sauvage si laid, leur tintamarre,
je les redoute, j'en frissonne, car j'y prévois la mort de l'art !

Mais moi, je suis clair, je suis modeste, lucide, simple ; qu'on m'admire !
Un vrai classique, plein de tact,
Un parfait classique, fort poli !


From the Musorsky score.
