Moscow Nights - Подмосковные вечера
« on: April 21, 2010, 08:24:11 PM »
Here is an all-time favorite from Soviet times to now.
The story is that it was originally called Petersburg nights, but in Soviet time St. Petersburg was renamed Leningrad and the song was not allowed. The Soviets moved the capital to Moscow and the song was changed to Moscow Nights!

Подмосковные вечера
"Moscow Nights" Music by - V. Solovjov-Sedoj, lyrics - M. Matusovskij

Not even a whisper is to be heard in the garden,
Everything has calmed down until dawn.
If you only knew how dear they are to me,
The evenings near Moscow!

The river is moving and (sometimes) not,
All made of the moons silver.
A song sounds and is not to be heard
In those quiet evenings.

Why do you, darling, look at me from the side,
Bending your head so low?
It is not easy to tell
All the things that are in my heart.

And dawn is getting more and more visible.
So, please, be so kind:
You, also, dont forget
These summer evenings near Moscow.


Подмосковные вечера

Не слышны в саду даже шорохи,
Все здесь замерло до утра,
Если б знали вы, как мне дороги
Подмосковные вечера.

Речка движется и не движется,
Вся из лунного серебра,
Песня слышится и не слышится
В эти тихие вечера.

А рассвет уже все заметнее,
Так, пожалуйста, будь добра,
Не забудь и ты эти летние
Подмосковные вечера.

Не слышны в саду даже шорохи,
Все здесь замерло до утра,
Если б знали вы, как мне дороги
Подмосковные вечера.


Podmoskovnye vetchera

Ne slyshny v sadu dazhe shorohi,
Vsjo zdes´ zamerlo do utra.
Esli b znali vy, kak mne dorogi
Podmoskovnye vetchera.

Retchka dvizhetsja i ne dvizhetsja,
Vsja iz lunnogo serebra.
Pesnja slyshitsja i ne slyshitsja
V eti tihie vetchera.

Tchto ty, milaja, smotrish iskosa,
Nizko golovu naklonja?
Trudno vyskazat´ i ne vyskazat´
Vsjo, tchto na serdce u menja.

A rassvet uzhe vsjo zametnee.
Tak, pozhalujsta, bud´ dobra:
Ne zabud´ i ty eti letnie
Podmoskovnye vetchera.
