"Two guitars in next apartment
Playing tune in minor key...
Let me go to supermarket
Get myself another ski...

Sing it once, sing it twice!
Sing it many-many times!
Many time is not too many,
So, let's do it one more times!

There is a sign on my wall
That says I am married not at all...
it's because my name is Vanya
and I don't have any money.

Sing it once, sing it twice!
Sing it many-many times!
Many time is not too many,
So, let's do it one more times!

My friend Boris from New York
Never doing any works.
He just sitting home alone,
Thinking where he belongs.

Sing it once, sing it twice!
Sing it many-many times!
Many time is not too many,
So, let's do it one more times!

Russian dances-shmenser Sasha
Just arrived from Belorussia
He is snoring very loud
You don't want to find out!

Sing it once, sing it twice!
Sing it many-many times!
Many time is not too many,
So, let's do it one more times!

I rent my Russian car to Frank,
I sold my house to Citibank.
For all that money I have got...
Awesome yellow I-Pod!

Sing it once, sing it twice!
Sing it many-many times!
Many time is not too many,
So, let's do it one more times!

You are Gypsy, I am Gypsy
We are Gypsy more or less
You are stealing people's money
I am stealing something else

Sing it once, sing it twice!
Sing it many-many times!
Many time is not too many,
So, let's do it one more times! "

Translation by Mikhail Smirnov
