Full text of the poem sounds only in the last variance (played by Oleg Pogodin). In other embodiments sounds only the first verse. And rightly so: why sing to the kids at night scary movies about the evil Chechen? )))


Sleep, my beautiful baby,
Quietly watching month
In the cradle of your.
I will be told I tales,
Song sing;
Well you Dremel, closing eyes,

Flows over the rocks Terek,
Dull roar shaft;
Evil Chechen creeps ashore,
Sharpens his knife;
But your father is an old warrior,
Hardened in battle:
Sleep, baby, be calm,

Himself know the time will come
Swear life;
Bravely put his foot in the stirrup
And take the gun.
I Seelze combat
Silk will embroider...
Sleep, my child is native,

Hero you will be aware
And Cossack soul.
To see you I will be released -
You would pull the plug...
How many bitter tears slipped
I that night will Shine!..
Sleep, my angel, softly, sweetly,

I'm longing to languish,
Inconsolable wait;
Going day to pray,
At night wondering;
I think that miss
You're in a foreign land...
Sleep well, while worries don't know

I'll give you on the road
The Holy scapular:
You are his own, praying to God,
Put before them;
Yes, preparing to battle dangerous
Remember his mother...
Sleep, my beautiful baby,

M. Y. Lermontov, 1840
