Не верь мне друг, когда в избытке горя
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Available translation(s): DUT FRE
Не [верь мне]1 друг, когда в [избытке]2 горя
Я говорю, что разлюбил тебя!
В отлива час не верь измене моря,
Оно к земле воротится, любя.

Уж я тоскую, прежней страсти полный,
[Мою]3 свободу вновь тебе отдам.
И уж бегут [с обратным]4 шумом волны
Издалека к любимым берегам.

Geloof het niet mijn lief
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the Russian (Русский) 
Geloof het niet mijn lief, als ik in een vlaag van smart zeg
dat ik niet meer van je houd!
Want het is als met de  zee,
Zij keert telkens weer terug NA lange uren van eb.
 
Ze keert naar het land terug vol liefde.
Mijn vrijheid zal ik je weer teruggeven.
En de golven keren  uit de verte met geraas terug
naar de geliefde oevers.
