Lyrics for Russia 2007

Alexandra Golovchenko – Otlichnitsa

Russian:

O nelegkoj detskoj dole

Ka sejchad vam rasskazhu

Kak zhe slozhno byt’ rebenkom

Prosto slov ne nahozhu…

 

Mne tverdjat s utra do nochi

“Bud’ ser’eznoj i bol’shoj”

Ja ne znaju, chto zhe delat’

S hrupkoj detskoju dushoj

Ha-ha-ha, s utra horeografija

Ga-ga-ga, i gammy na obed

Risovanie, figurnoe katanie

Shahrnaty, klassicheskij balet

 

Fehtovanie, futbol i vyshivanie

Saksofon i konnaja ezda

Mne tverdjat sosedi i roditeli

“Bud’ horoshej devochkoj vsegda”

 

Vam priznajus’ po sekretu

Ja uzhasno vljublena

Ne v pojeta, ni v tantsora

V huligana-drachuna

 

On ne metit v prezidenty

On otlichnikov groza

No SHekspiru i ne snilis’

Jeti sinie glaza

 

Vmeste my postavim papu na puanty

Ma-ma-ma zastavim mamu risovat’

Ba-ba-ba dlja babushki est’ gammi

Nu, a dedushku nauchim vyshivat’

 

Ha-ha-ha, s utra horeografija

Ga-ga-ga, i gammy na obed

Zhizn’ moja sploshnoe raspisanie

I Romeo v jetih planah net

 

Fehtovanie, futbol i vyshivanie

Saksofon i konnaja ezda

Mne tverdjat sosedi i roditeli

“Bud’ horoshej devochkoj vsegda”

Da-da, vsegda 

English: 

I will tell you know

About the difficult fate of a child
How it is difficult to be a child
I don’t have enough words to describe…
I’m being told day till night:
“Be serious and behave like a grown up”
And I don’t know what to do
With my fragile soul of a child

Choreography from the morning
Music scales at dinner time
Painting, and figure skating
Chess, classical ballet
Fencing, football and embroidery
Saxophone and equestrian sports
I’m still being told by parents and neighbours:
“Always be a good girl”
Yeah, yeah, yeah
But…

I will secretly confess to you
That I am deeply in love
Not with a poet, not with a dancer
But with a hooligan pugnacious boy
He doesn’t want to become president
And he is the terror of excellent pupils
But Shakespeare couldn’t even dream of
These blue eyes

Together we will put dad on points
We will force mum to paint
There are music scales for granny
And we will teach grandpa to embroider

Choreography at night
And music scales at dinner time
My life is like a schedule
And there is no Romeo in these plans
Football and embroidery
Saxophone and equestrian sports
I’m still being told by parents:
“Always be a good girl”
Yes, yes, Always!
