Ax ty', tyomny'j les, Meletinskij les
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Ax ty', tyomny'j les, Meletinskij les,
Chto zimoyu tak zeleneesh` ty'?
Rada, rada b ya ne kruchinitsya,
Da ne derzhit slyoz, serdce bednoe!
Netu batyushki, spit v zemle sy'roj!
I nad matushkoj travka vy'rosla!
Drug v chuzhoj zemle, ne vorotitsya,
Tak nikto dushe, ne otkliknyotsya!
