Sing for Day of Victory! Den' Pobedy
« on: May 07, 2010, 10:54:03 PM »
"Den' Pobedy" (Russian: День Победы, English: Victory Day) ranks among the most popular in the large corpus of Russian songs dedicated to World War II. The song refers to the Victory Day (9 May) celebration and differs from most of these by its cheerful intonations of a marching song and by the fact that it was composed some thirty years after the war.

Russian lyrics

   День Победы, как он был от нас далёк,
   Как в костре потухшем таял уголёк.
   Были вёрсты, обгорелые, в пыли
   Этот день мы приближали как могли.

   Chorus:

       Этот День Победы
       Порохом пропах,
       Это праздник
       С сединою на висках.
       Это радость
       Со слезами на глазах.

           День Победы!

               День Победы!

                   День Победы!

   Дни и ночи у мартеновских печей
   Не смыкала наша Родина очей.
   Дни и ночи битву трудную вели
   Этот день мы приближали как могли.

   Chorus

   Здравствуй, мама, возвратились мы не все...
   Босиком бы пробежаться по росе!
   Пол-Европы, прошагали, пол-Земли
   Этот день мы приближали как могли.

   Chorus x 2


[edit] Romanization

   Den' Pobedy, kak on byl ot nas dalyok,
   Kak v kostre potukhshem tayal ugolyok.
   Byli vyorsty, obgorelye, v pyli
   Etot den' my priblizhali kak mogli.

   Chorus:

       Etot Den' Pobedy
       Porokhom propakh,
       Eto prazdnik,
       S sedinoyu na viskakh.
       Eto radost'
       So slezami na glazakh.

           Den' Pobedy!

               Den' Pobedy!

                   Den' Pobedy!

   Dni i nochi u martenovskikh pechey,
   Ne smykala nasha Rodina ochey.
   Dni i nochi bitvu trudnuyu veli,
   Etot den' my priblizhali kak mogli.

   Chorus

   Zdravstvuy, mama, vozvratilis' my ne vse,
   Bosikom by probezhat'sya po rose!
   Pol-Yevropy proshagali, pol-Zemli
   Etot den' my priblizhali kak mogli.

   Chorus x 2


[edit] Translation

   Victory Day, how far was it from us
   Like an ember dwindled in the faded fire.
   Versts[2] were there, burnt and dusted,
   We did all we could for hastening this day.

   Chorus:

       This Victory Day
       Saturated with the smell of gunpowder,
       This is a holiday
       With gray hairs on temples,
       This is joy
       With tears in our eyes,

           Victory Day!

               Victory Day!

                   Victory Day!

   Days and nights at open-hearth furnaces
   Our Motherland spent, sleepless.
   Days and nights we fought a hard battle,
   We did all we could for hastening this day.

   Chorus

   Hello, Mom, not all of us came back...
   Wish to run about barefoot in dew!
   Half of Europe, we have stridden half the Earth,
   We did all we could for hastening this day.

   Chorus x 2
