Ne plač', ne plač', moë ditja

Language: Russian (Русский)

Ne plač', ne plač', moë ditja,
Ne stoit on bezumnoj muki.
Ver', on laskal tebja šutja,
Ver', on ljubil tebja ot skuki!
I malo l' v Gruzii u nas
Prekrasnych junošej najdëtsja?
Bystrej ogon' ich čërnych glaz,
I čërnyj us ich lučše v'ëtsja!

Iz dal'nej, čuždoj storony
On k nam zabrošen byl sud'boju;
On iščet slavy i vojny, —
I čto ž on mog najti s toboju?
Tebja on zolotom daril,
Kljalsja, čto večno ne izmenit,
On laski dorogo cenil —
No slëz tvoich on ne ocenit!
