I ruki l'nut k rukam

Language: Russian (Русский) after the English

I ruki l'nut k rukam, i ochi smotrjat v ochi - 
Tak prost nash gimn serdec v sijan'e `etoj nochi.
Luna nam tikho svetit, struitsja aromat,
I flejta, i girljanda v zabvenii lezhat.
Zachem teper' mne zvuki, zachem tebe cvety.
Prosta ljubov', kak pesnja, zdes' tol'ko ja da ty.
I smotrjat ochi v ochi, i l'nut k ustam usta.
Mezh mnoju i toboju ljubov', kak pesn', prosta.
