Paren' prigozhij moj,
Paren' krasivyj, kto ty?
Zachem nad Svitez'ju burlivoj
Brodish' nenastnoj poroju?
Bros'sja k nam v volny
I budem kruzhit'sja vmeste po zybi
Khrustal'noj so mnoju.
Khochesh', moj milyj,
I lastochkoj shibkoj
Budesh' nad ozerom mchat'sja,
Ili krasivoj veseloju rybkoj 
Belyj den' budesh' ty v strujkakh pleskat'sja.
Noch'ju na lozhe volny serebristoj
Landishej my nabrosajem,
Sladko zadremlem pod sen'ju struistoj,
Divnye grjozy uznajem!
