Забыть так скоро

Language: Russian (Русский)

Забыть так скоро, боже мой,
Всё счастье жизни прожитой!
Все наши встречи, разговоры,
Забыть так скоро, забыть так скоро!

Забыть волненья первых дней,
Свиданья час в тени ветвей!
Очей немые разговоры,
Забыть так скоро, забыть так скоро!

Забыть, как полная луна
На нас глядела из окна,
Как колыхалась тихо штора...
Забыть так скоро, забыть так скоро, так скоро!

Забыть любовь, забыть мечты, 
Забыть те клятвы помнишь ты, помнишь ты, помнишь ты?
В ночную пасмурную пору, в ночную пасмурную пору,
Забыть так скоро, забыть так скоро!
Боже мой!

Oublier si vite

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

Oublier si vite, mon Dieu,
Tout le bonheur que nous avons vécu !
Tous nos rendez-vous, nos conversations,
Oublier si vite, oublier si vite !

Oublier l'excitation des premiers jours,
Nos rencontres dans l'ombre des branches !
Les conversations muettes entre nos yeux,
Oublier si vite, oublier si vite!

Oublier comment la pleine lune
Nous regardait à travers la fenêtre,
Comment les rideaux se balançaient doucement...
Oublier si vite, oublier si vite, si vite !

Oublier notre amour, oublier nos rêves,
Oublier nos serments, te souviens-tu, te souviens-tu, te souviens-tu ?
Dans la nuit sombre, dans la nuit sombre,
Oublier si vite, oublier si vite !
Mon Dieu !
