Ja segodnja ne pomnju, čto bylo včera
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Ja segodnja ne pomnju, čto bylo včera,
Po utram zabyvaju svoi večera,
V belyj den' zabyvaju ogni,
Po nočam zabyvaju dni.

No vse noči i dni naplyvajut na nas
Pered smert'ju, v toržestvennyj čas.
I togda — v duchote, v tesnote
     Sliškom bol'no mečtat'
        O byloj krasote
           I ne moč':
     Chočeš' vstat' —
           I noč'.
