Soviet song (1949) – Harvest song (English subtitles)


On the river of Kuban Wave is flowing after wave. Wave is flowing! And with golden ears of wheat Kuban steppe is rustling. Not in vain we have decided, We, the agricultural experts, That barns should be overflowing With Kuban goods. Keep gathering, keep gathering,
And keep loading, keep loading, Keep loading, the time has come, Oh, it’s our harvest, our harvest,
Our great harvest! We were going out to work in those steppes Before dawn. Oh, before dawn! So that athletes and musclemen
Could grow on our bread; So that all the girls could be
Lovely and dexterous, So that young cossacks
Could love them stronger. Keep gathering, keep gathering,
And keep loading, keep loading, Keep loading, the time has come, Oh, it’s our harvest, our harvest,
Our great harvest! We’ll gather everything as it should be,
Not a single grain will be wasted, Not a single! Because we are very tightly-knit
And reliable folk. And the wagon carts will go, go
Into the cities along the big road, The collective farms will live up
To the expectations of our Motherland. Keep gathering, keep gathering,
And keep loading, keep loading, Keep loading, the time has come, Oh, it’s our harvest, our harvest,
Our great harvest! It’s not the rewards that had seduced us,
Everyone would tell you that. Everyone would tell! We were growing our grains
Because of the worker’s honor. But if in addition to that
There will be a reward adjudged to us, Then we won’t say, “We don’t need it!”
No, we’ll say that we do need. Keep gathering, keep gathering,
And keep loading, keep loading, Keep loading, the time has come, Oh, it’s our harvest, our harvest,
Our great harvest! It’s our harvest, our harvest,
Our great harvest! Oh, it’s our harvest, our harvest,
Our great harvest! It’s our harvest, our harvest,
Our great harvest!

  2. Oh no look at all this Stalinist terror, they took all the grain from the villagers and now everybody will starve! Right after these scenes where shot all these poor traditional Russian villagers where executed by Stalin himself! Conquest, Solzhenitsyn and the CIA told me that it definitely happened!

  5. In France in education, they tell us that these scenes are completely false and that behind this so-called "propaganda video" lies the terror. Frankly, I live with US imperialism that can transmit us: its LGBT Russians, its extremist feminists, its radical Islam, its corrupt politics, its capitalism and its liberalism, the meritocracy, the institutions founded by the United States. .. France is a satellite state for its rican shits!
