Storm Clouds (Тучи)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjymNCqqnfg 

 

You blame the rain,

Puddles on the pavement.

You stand and wait,

Your dress drenched and wet.

Your friend didn't show,

Your closest ally.

How immature.

Plus, storm clouds cover the sky.

 

CHORUS (2x):

And in the sky, those storm clouds

Storm clouds, well, they are like people (people)

They lack a companion like people (storm clouds)

But, you know, storm clouds aren't as evil

 

And in the sky there's storm clouds, storm clouds, storm clouds, storm clouds,

People, people, people, people, storm clouds, storm clouds, storm clouds, storm clouds,

People, people, people.

 

Your friend didn't show.

End of happy stories.

Simply didn't show.

Didn't say he's sorry.

Pointless blaming rain,

No reason to cry.

You stand and wait,

And you don't know why.

 

CHORUS (2x)

 

Well, they are like people

Storm clouds, storm clouds, storm clouds, they are like people

People, people, people.

Storm clouds, storm clouds, storm clouds, storm clouds,

People

 

 

Doll (Кукла)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wb1rEv_4UZs 

 

Doll Masha, don't cry

Doll Sasha, don't cry, don't cry, don't cry

Doll Olga, don't cry

Doll Pasha, don't cry, don't cry, don't cry!

 

All day there's rain

Down the window water patters

All day there's rain

And your owner's with the redhead.

Walking through the alleys, won't come home.

Once again you are left here alone.

 

All day there's rain

Rain is vain and rain is stubborn.

All day you wait,

You're just waiting for your owner.

The street lamps shine the lights of night.

When will she finally arrive?

 

CHORUS:

Doll Masha, doll Misha, doll Sasha, and Arisha

The wheel of fairy tales has stopped

(The tears like raindrops just flow and flow and flow)

Doll Masha, doll Sasha: all the children have grown older

Eventually, all kids grow up

(But maybe somewhere she is falling in love...)

 

Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na...

Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na...

 

All day there's rain

It soaks branches, destroys paper

Rain falls, rain, rain

Doll is given to the neighbor.

Her mother will take you, she won't ask,

Put you in a box, and on you pass.

 

They have a boy,

He will cram you in a corner

With all his toys.

Dolls have feelings, no one warned him.

Now midnight has struck, and the doll cries.

You can't see the tears on plastic eyes.

 

CHORUS

 

 Doll Masha don't cry

Doll Ania don't cry, don't cry, don't cry

Doll Sasha don't cry

Doll Tanya don't cry, don't cry, don't cry

Doll Olga don't cry

Doll Yulia don't cry

Doll Yura don't cry, don't cry, don't cry

Doll Katya don't cry

Doll Kostia don't cry

Doll Ira don't cry, don't cry, don't cry

 

 

Dolls, cars, and trains and kites,

Lions, tigers, crocodiles...

The wheel of fairy tales has stopped.

Doll Masha, doll Sasha

All the children have grown older.

Eventually, all kids grow up.

 

Doll Masha, doll Masha, doll Masha, doll Masha....
