From The Opera Carmen Отрывок из оперы "Кармен" The bird you caught by surprise Beats its wing, and off it flies. Love ignores you, you wait and mope, Then there it is-when you give up hope. Love's all around you. Quick, quick! You have no man, or you have your pick. Think you've found love? It turns you down cold. Think you've escaped it? It has you in its hold.
L'oiseau que tu croyais surprendre Battit de l'aile et s'envola- L'amour est loin, tu peux l'attendre; Tu ne l'attends plus- il est la. Tout autour de toi, vite, vite, Il vient, s'en va, puis il revient- Tu crois le tenir, il t'evite, Tu veux l'eviter; il te tient
У любви крылья вольной птицы. Её попробуй, приручи. Не захочет - не покорится И в небо синее умчит. Ты ей клялся, пылая страстью, Ты вечный рай ей обещал. А певунья летит за счастьем К тому, кто молча ожидал.
Любовь! Любовь! Любовь! Любовь!
Меня не любишь, - что ж, прекрасно. Полюбить меня - играть с огнём. Но я люблю - и всё напрасно. Один лишь миг - и ты влюблён!
I AM ME, BORN ALIVE BORN FREE, NAKED WITH NO BURDEN WHEN I ARRIVE, MY ONLY HOPE IS TO SURVIVE, THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF THIS LIFE, WHERE DANGER, HORRORS, CRUELTY IS RIFE, BUT KNOW ME FOR WHO I AM, SIMPLE, STUPID, IDIOTIC MAN, WHO LOVES YOU ALL, AND BIG OR SMALL, JUST TRIES DO HIS BEST FOR YOU IF I CAN!
From the start of life, To gaining a wife, All we do is run like mice, On a treadmill which is not so nice, When all we strive to achieve, Is that others see us, trust us and believe, That we have honour, truth, values fair, Then in their minds the circle we square, So that each and everyone has a place, And that order is kept in the human race, But as always when man competes with man, The brown stuff is sure to hit the fan, For be it power, land, cash or status that they seek, Only harm befalls the meek, And suffer they do and all they strive to protect, Is damaged, torn apart, wrecked And the human waste in terms of hurt, Cannot be measured but the perpetrators when asked 'why?' are merely curt, For they gain and other not!
