Zvyozdy' noch`yu vesennej nezhnee
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Zvyozdy' noch`yu vesennej nezhnee, 
Solov`i ostorozhnej poyut...
YA lyublyu e`ti tyomny'e nochi, 
E`ti zvyozdy', i klyony', i prud.

Ty', kak zvyozdy', chista i prekrasna... 
Radost` zhizni vo vsem ya lovlyu:
V zvezdnom nebe, v czvetax, v aromatax...
No tebya ya nezhnee lyublyu.

Lish` s toboyu [odnoyu ya schastliv]1, 
I tebya ne zamenit [nikto]2:
Ty' odna menya znaesh` i lyubish` 
I odna ponimaesh` -- za chto!
