Terroristic russia is bombing Ukraine now.
Please, go and ask your governments to stop them.
Ask to switch them off SWIFT, payments, exports, EVERYTHING!
Help Ukraine financially:
Bank of Ukraine

Valentina Tolkunova "Skazhite Lebedi (Скажите, лебеди,)" lyrics

Translation to: EN

Скажите, лебеди,
Скажите, белые,
А где вы плавали,
А что вы делали?

По морю плавали
Навстречу лодочкам
И гнёзда вили мы
Своим лебёдушкам.

Скажите, лебеди,
Друзья хорошие,
А что вы видели
В степи некошеной?

Курган мы видели,
Полынь высокую,
Могилу братскую
И одинокую.

Скажите, лебеди,
Вы, птицы милые,
А кто же слёзы лил
Над той могилою?

Не люди плакали —
Дожди туманные.
Лежат герои там —
Все безымянные.

Скажите, лебеди,
Вы, птицы вольные,
Где похоронены

Храните к Родине
Любовь безмерную —
Подскажет совесть вам
Дорогу верную.

Tell me, my swans,
The snow-white ones,
Where have you been,
What have you seen?

We have been swimming
Near the seasides,
Our nests we were weiving
For our brides.

Tell me, my swans,
my dear friends,
What have you seen
in our heartlands?

A place where tall weeds
cover the ground
Over the soldiers
in a burial mound.

Tell me, my swans,
Tell me, my brave,
Who has been mourning
Over that grave?

Only the rains
Have shed the tears.
Soldiers who lay there
Are unknown heroes.

Tell me, my swans,
Tell me, my sweet,
Where is that place?
Where can we find it?

Just love your country
As much as did they.
Your heart will show
You the shortest way.
