CLOUDS IN THE BLUE (Тучи в голубом)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xh5IP1lMjNQ

 

Once again, battlefield's red from the fight

Guns going off through the day and the night

But, when I look at these photos,

I feel you holding me tight!

 

CHORUS:
Oh, these clouds in the blue!

They remind me of the ocean

They remind me of our home

Where, out the window, seagulls roam.

Where me and you, we dance the waltz

Where me and you, we dance the waltz

Where me and you, we dance the waltz

In minor.

 

If I am left alive in the war,

I will return to you home, I am sure

Only, while I am fighting,

Please don't forget me, my love!

 

CHORUS

 

Junkers are circling, there's fire in the sky

I will return to you home, please don't cry

From the skies I can see your

Lovely and gentle profile...

 

CHORUS (2x)

 

 


RIO DE JANEIRO (Рио де Жанейро)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGwmVadn4bo

 

I need I need I

Need to hurry up

Cause he will be here to pick me up

Very soon

I do not know you

Very well but

Somehow I know that things will only

Be good.

I don't know how you have charmed me so

I'm ready, oh, please take me, please, let's go!

 

CHORUS (2x):


Please take me where,

Please take me where,

Please take me where there's Rio de Janeiro!

 

But please don't expect

Me to just be

A week-long friend

And then,

Though you may believe

It necessary,

I don't want to hear of golden, grand

Hotels.

I have lost my head, oh, can't you see?

Please let it burn away, let me be free!

 CHORUS (2x)

 

I am for you, you are for me

It is like that, oh can't you see?

 CHORUS (4x)
