Starye gody, schastlivye dni
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Starye gody, schastlivye dni!
Kak veshnije vody, promchalis' oni;
Ne mnogo ikh bylo v udel mne dano;
Chto serdce ljubilo, vse skrylos' davno!
Ne mnogo ikh bylo v udel mne dano;
Chto serdce ljubilo, vse skrylos' davno!

Vy radost' umchali, i zhrebij unyl!
Godami pechali za mig zaplatil;
Vostorgi zhivye na gore smenil;
Mechty zolotye navek pogubil!
Vostorgi zhivye na gore smenil;
Mechty zolotye navek pogubil!

I zhiznennyj pir dlja menja otoshel.
Mne chuzhoj `etot mir; ja kak strannik, proshel
Bez priveta v puti, i uzh svetlomu dnju
Dlja menja ne vzojti! Mne nedolgo idti
Bez priveta v puti, i uzh svetlomu dnju
Dlja menja ne vzojti! Mne nedolgo idti!

I moj put' odinok, kak v pustyne!
I prijut nedalek – on v puchine.
No byloje zabyt' serdcu trudno!
Chego zh net, to ljubit' bezrassudno!
