Cherkesskaya pesnya
Language: Russian (Русский) 
V reke bezhit gremuchij val;
V gorax bezmolvie nochnoe:
Kazak ustaly'j zadremal,
Sklonyas` na kopie stal`noe.
Ne spi, kazak: vo t`me nochnoj,
Chechenecz xodit za rekoj.

Kazak ply'vet na chelnoke,
Vlacha po dnu rechnomu seti. 
Kazak, utonesh` ty' v reke,
Kak tonut malen`kie deti,
Kupayas` zharkoyu poroj:
Chechenecz xodit za rekoj.

Na beregu zavetny'x vod
Czvetut bogaty'e stanicy';
Vesely'j plyashet xorovod.
Begite russkie pevicy';
Speshite, krasny'e, domoj:
Chechenecz xodit za rekoj.
