Soviet song (1940) – A detachment was going  (Hedgehog) (English subtitles)


A detachment was going along a wide plain, Along the fields of Ukrainian land, And in a lonely steppe hamlet The partisans found a boy. He was small, silent, wary – Grief has fallen on his heart. Someone jokingly called him “Hedgehog”, Someone gently raised him to the saddle. In the routes, in the fire of cannonade Anxious days floated like smoke… Our Hedgehog became the favorite of the detachment, A partisan, a young soldier. But once in a deep ravine The Whites surrounded the fighters, And with all the guerrilla bravery The fire ring can’t be broken. The ammunition in the revolvers was exhausted, The enemy cut off the ways to retreat, And the commander said to the boy: “Come on, Hedgehog, save the partisans!” Make your way along the inconspicuous road And run to the Red Headquarters near the Dnieper. If you can’t come with reinforcements on time, We can not hold out till morning! ” Along the unknown trails, Through the wilds of swamps and bushes Unremarkable and small “hedgehog” Slipped through the enemy positions. To the detachment with machine-gun fire The enemy was advancing from all sides Suddenly there was a distant clatter: The red squadron has arrived! They flew in, thunder struck, The blades shone brighter than lightnings! Before the dashing red squadron The Whites retreated in the battle! And in the midst of the battle, He was killed who brought reinforcements And the soldiers said: “What a guy … In appearance – a hedgehog, but in the heart – an eagle!” And the soldiers said: “What a guy … In appearance – a hedgehog, but in the heart – an eagle!”
