Не знаю, что это значит...
Сон чудесный приснился мне,
Как будто в лодке рыбачьей
Я плыву по бурной волне
Чёлн без вёсел, я их бросил...
Волны пенятся, злятся и топят мой чёлн,
Но отважно мчусь я среди тёмных,
Средь огромных волн,
Оттого, что в рыбачей этой лодке
По морской непокорной глуби
Мчишься ты, моя гордая,
мчишся вместе со мной
И меня ты будто тоже любишь!
О моя голубка! Посмотри же,
Как несётся в своей лодочке крупкой по морю
Бедный парень, что так крепко любит тебя!

Je ne sais pas ce que cela signifie...
Je rêvais dans un sommeil magique,
Comme si j'étais dans un bateau de pêche
Je naviguais sur une vague violente
Ma barque n'a pas d'avirons, je les avais jeté au loin...
Les vagues écument furieusement, essaient de couler mon bateau,
Mais, bravement je file dans le noir
À travers les énormes vagues,
Parce que dans ce bateau de pêche
Sur les profondeurs insoumises de la mer
Avance aussi, ma courageuse,
Avance ensemble avec moi
Et c'est comme si tu m'aimais !
Oh, ma colombe ! regarde maintenant
Comment vole vers toi dans ce frêle petit bateau
Le pauvre garçon qui t'aime si fort !
