Cherkesskaja pesnja
Language: Russian (Русский) 
V reke bezhit gremuchij val;
V gorakh bezmolvije nochnoje:
Kazak ustalyj zadremal,
Sklonjas' na kopije stal'noje.
Ne spi, kazak: vo t'me nochnoj,
Chechenec khodit za rekoj.

Kazak plyvet na chelnoke,
Vlacha po dnu rechnomu seti. 
Kazak, utonesh' ty v reke,
Kak tonut malen'kije deti,
Kupajas' zharkoju poroj:
Chechenec khodit za rekoj.

Na beregu zavetnykh vod
Cvetut bogatye stanicy;
Veselyj pljashet khorovod.
Begite russkije pevicy;
Speshite, krasnye, domoj:
Chechenec khodit za rekoj.
