Pesn' Cyganki

Language: Russian (Русский)

Moj koster v tumane svetit,
Iskry gasnut na letu...
Noch'ju nas nikto ne vstretit;
My prostimsja na mostu.

Noch' projdjot i spozaranok
V step', daljoko, milyj moj,
Ja ujdu s tolpoj cyganok
Za kibitkoj kochevoj.

Na proshchan'e shal' s kajmoju
Ty na mne uzlom stjani:
Kak koncy jejo, s toboju
My skhodilis' v `eti dni.

Kto-to mne sud'bu predskazhet?
Kto-to zavtra, sokol moj,
Na grudi mojej razvjazhet 
Uzel, stjanutyj toboj?

Vspominaj, koli drugaja,
Drugaja milogo ljubja,
Budet pesni pet', igraja
Na kolenjakh u tebja!

Moj koster v tumane svetit,
Iskry gasnut na letu...
Noch'ju nas nikto ne vstretit;
My prostimsja na mostu.
