For those interested in this girl - here is her profile with pics in vk.com, Russian most popular social network. And also Russian web-article about her vid success with some pics http://domfactov.com/pesnya-rossiysko...
One more (Russian pop) song from her https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ax5xN... - more songs from her at the same channel.


In case you register at vk.com - here is another version of the same song by the same girl but at a scene https://vk.com/video_ext.php?oid=6303...


This song was written in 1980-ies as a poem in a Soviet poetry magazine, author - David Samoilov. Later another guy, Victor Stolyarov, has written music for it. Initially this poem was called "Husar song". Later, after it turned into a song, it was presented as an old cossack song and was sung by cossacks choir. It really looks like a cossack song so much.It came extremely popular in Russia already in the 21st centuary and became a part of soundtracks for several Russian movies about police and WWII special forces.


Originaly sung by a male voice. Here is the same song sung by mail choir http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeyDfV...

Raw translated lyrics as follows:
---

When we were at war

That time when we were at the war,
That time when we were at the war
And there everyone reminisced his
Beloved or his dear wife
And there everyone reminisced his
Beloved or his dear wife

And he could also think of that,
And he could also think of that,
When he was staring at his pipe
And at its blue clouds of choky smoke
When he was staring at his pipe
And at its blue clouds of choky smoke

But no he didn't think at all,
But no he didn't think at all,
He was just smoking pipe thats all
with Turkish bitter tobacco,
He was just smoking pipe thats all
with Turkish bitter tobacco,

Do you recall you lied and lied?
Do you recall you lied and lied?
That you gave your girl's heart
to someone else long time ago
Yes you gave your girl's heart
to someone else long time ago

I set my mind i'll meet a bullet
I'm only waiting for a sure bullet
with hopes to send away my pain
to set a limit to our hostility
with hopes to send away my pain
and to set a limit to our hostility

That time we will be at a war,
That time we will be at a war,
I'll rush ahead to face the bullets
riding my raven horse
I'll rush ahead to face the bullets
riding my raven horse

But looks like death is not for me
But looks like death is not for me
and my raven horse
brings me out of fire again
and my raven horse
brings me out of fire again

Translation by Aurochs Fly
