Не пой, красавица, при мне
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Available translation(s): ENG ITA
Не пой, красавица, при мне
Ты песен Грузии печальной;
Напоминают мне [оне]1
Другую жизнь и берег дальний.

Увы, напоминают мне
Твои жестокие напевы
И степь, и ночь, и при луне
Черты далекой, бедной девы!

Я [призрак]2 милый, роковой,
Тебя увидев, забываю;
Но ты поёшь, и предо мной
Его я вновь воображаю.

Не пой, красавица, при мне
Ты песен Грузии печальной;
Напоминают мне [оне]1
Другую жизнь и берег дальний.

M. Glinka sets stanzas 1-2

Non cantarmi mia bellezza
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the Russian (Русский) 
Non cantarmi mia bellezza
le tue tristi canzoni georgiane;
mi riportano alla memoria
un'altra vita in terre lontane.

E la crudele melodia
rinnova, allora, il doloroso ricordo
della steppa, della notte, della luna
e del viso di una amata lontana.

Questa apparizione dolce e fatale
la dimentico se mi resti  davanti,
ma torna a invadere la mia mente
non appena intoni i tuoi canti.

Non cantarmi mia bellezza
le tue tristi canzoni georgiane;
mi riportano alla memoria
un'altra vita in terre lontane.
