Мне грустно, потому что я тебя люблю
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Мне грустно, потому что я тебя люблю
И знаю: Молодость цветущую твою
Не пощадит молвы коварное гоненье.
За каждый светлый [день]1 иль сладкое мгновенье
Слезами и тоской заплатишь ты судьбе.
Мне грустно, потому что весело тебе.

I am sad because I love you
Language: English  after the Russian (Русский) 
 I am sad because I love you
 and know that your blossoming youth
 will not be spared by insidious gossip.
 For every good day, for every sweet moment
 you will have to pay Fate with tears and grief.
 I am sad because you are happy.
