Ėl'zasskaja Ballada

Language: Russian (Русский)

Žil v strane korol'. On star i beden byl.
Iz vsech sokrovišč sochranil liš' doč' svoju Gertrudu.
Žil s nim rycar' znatnyj, ego Garol'dom zvali.
Iz vsech krasavic on ljubil liš' junuju Gertrudu. 
No zloj rok sulil ich ljubvi konec inoj.
Saracin ubil ego v boju za krest svjatoj...
I s toj pory ona vsë ždet, čto on pridet k Gertrude...
Dnëm il' noč'ju temnoju ona vsë podžidala...
I v stradan'jach bednaja rassudok poterjala...
I s toj pory ona vsë ždet, čto on pridet k Gertrude...
Žil v strane korol'. On star i beden byl.
Iz vsech sokrovišč sochranil liš' doč' svoju Gertrudu.
Tak pelas' pesn' v moej strane...
