Soviet song – The Quiet Don (English subtitles)


Oh, yeah well fed is my horse,
My bay horse well-groomed! Good-bye, good-bye, quiet Don,
Quiet Don beloved! Good-bye, good-bye, quiet Don,
Quiet Don beloved! Mum, enough to grief, enough,
Cos there is no sorrow: Not for the tsar I go to serve,
But for our Soviets! Not for the tsar I go to serve,
But for our Soviets! In the previous hard times
You used to shed your tears When you sent your eldest sons
Into warlike service. When you sent your eldest sons
Into warlike service. Then a cossack was like a beast –
A cruel foe to a soldier. To the Red Army now he became
As a native brother. To the Red Army now he became
As a native brother. Come on, mother, stop to weep
Into the kerchief, Your grandson will amuse you –
Oh, my little sonny. Your grandson will amuse you –
Oh, my little sonny. If he makes something to you
In your half-awake state, Then at him you take a look
And recall about me! Give my greetings, mother, oh
To the darling hamlet. Good-bye, good-bye, quiet Don,
Quiet Don beloved! Good-bye, good-bye, quiet Don,
Quiet Don beloved!

  1. Just wanted to say you're one of my favorite music channels, thanks for posting a lot of rather obscure but great songs that I wouldn't be able to find anywhere else.
