Ne ver' mne drug, kogda v izbytke gorja

Available translation(s): DUT FRE
Ne [ver' mne]1 drug, kogda v [izbytke]2 gorja
Ja govorju, chto razljubil tebja!
V otliva chas ne ver' izmene morja,
Ono k zemle vorotitsja, ljubja.

Uzh ja toskuju, prezhnej strasti polnyj,
[Moju]3 svobodu vnov' tebe otdam.
I uzh begut [s obratnym]4 shumom volny
Izdaleka k ljubimym beregam.
