Суоми - красавиöа.        Suomi — the beauty

YouTube

Сосняком по откосам куäрявится
Пограничный скупой кругозор.
Принимай нас, Суоми - красавиöа,
В ожåрåлüå прозрачных озёр!

Stands of pines make curls on slopes,
The vision on the border is dim
Do receive us - Suomi, the beauty
adorned with a necklace of clear lakes.


Ломят танки широкиå просåки,
Самолёты кружат в облаках,
Нåвысокоå солнышко осåни
Зажигаåт огни на штыках.

Tanks are forcing wide paths
Airplanes wander over clouds,
The low sun of autumn
kindles fire on our bayonets.


Мы привыкли брататüся с побåäами
И опятü мы проносим в бою
По äорогам, исхожåнным äåäами,
Краснозвёзäную славу свою.

We have created a brotherhood with victories
And again we carry through battles
on roads that the grandfathers went
our Red Star glory.


Много лжи в эти гоäы навåрчåно,
Чтоб запутатü финлянäский нароä.
Раскрывайтå ж тåпåрü нам äовåрчиво
Половинки широких ворот!

Many lies have been rolled up on these years
to put the Finnish people in confusion.
Do open us now in full confidence
both sides of the broad gate!


Ни шутам, ни писакам юроäивым
Болüшå ваших сåрäåö нå смутитü.
Отнимали нå раз вашу роäину -
Мы прихоäим åё возвратитü.

No clowns, no feeble-minded scribblers
can any more confuse your hearts.
Many times your motherland has been robbed from you,
We will arrive to give it back to you.


Мы прихоäим помочü вам расправитüся,
Расплатитüся с лихвой за позор.
Принимай нас, Суоми - красавиöа,
В ожåрåлüå прозрачных озёр!

We will arrive to help you to mop it up,
to pay with interest for the shame,
Do receive us - Suomi, the beauty
adorned with a necklace of clear lakes.
