Monique Req:3 Men In A Caravan (Martha Schlamme)-Russian (16) RE: Req:3 Men In A Caravan (Martha Schlamme)-Russian 06 Jun 21


Here you go! Someone posted a request for an English translation on Lyricstranslate.com

Косичка (Коса)

По дороге пыльной, что легла под уклон,
Шёл широкой рысью наш лихой эскадрон.
Видим, у дороги девка-краса,
Чудо - коса, море - глаза,
Улыбнулася улыбкой простой,
Всем помахав рукой.

И сказал тогда с улыбкой наш капитан:
"Оглянитесь-ка, за нами пыль да туман,
А стояла там ведь дева-краса,
Ох, чудо - коса, море - глаза,
Увидала, что герой на коне
И улыбнулась мне".

Все слыхали, все смеялись, каждый мечтал.
Вдруг с весёлым смехом лейтенант наш сказал:
"Очень радостно, что дева-краса,
Чудо - коса, море - глаза,
Увидала, что орёл на коне
И улыбнулась мне".

Все слыхали, все смеялись, я промолчал.
Ехал тихо, ехал гордо, ехал и знал,
Но уверен я, что дева-краса,
Чудо - коса, море - глаза,
Увидала, что орёл на коне
И улыбнулась мне.

По дороге пыльной, что легла под уклон,
Шел широкой рысью наш лихой эскадрон.
А вдали осталась дева-краса,
Чудо - коса, море - глаза,
Улыбнулася улыбкой простой,
Всем помахав рукой.

In the meanwhile, here is what Google translate gives (I changed their original "scythe" for "pigtail" as there seems to be a confusion!):

Pigtail
On a dusty road that went downhill,
Our dashing squadron was walking at a broad trot.
We see a beautiful girl by the road,
Miracle - pigtail, sea - eyes,
Smiled with a simple smile
All with a wave of his hand.

And then our captain said with a smile:
"Look around, there is dust and fog behind us,
And the maiden-beauty stood there,
Oh, a miracle is a pigtail/braid,, the sea is eyes,
I saw that the hero was on horseback
And she smiled at me. "

Everyone heard, everyone laughed, everyone dreamed.
Suddenly, with a cheerful laugh, our lieutenant said:
"It is very joyful that the maiden is a beauty,
Miracle - pigtail, sea - eyes,
I saw that the eagle was on horseback
And she smiled at me. "

Everyone heard, everyone laughed, I said nothing.
I rode quietly, rode proudly, rode and knew
But I am sure that the maiden is a beauty,
Miracle - pigtail, sea - eyes,
I saw that the eagle was on horseback
And she smiled at me.

On a dusty road that went downhill,
Our dashing squadron was walking at a broad trot.
And the maiden-beauty remained in the distance,
Miracle - pigtail, sea - eyes,
Smiled with a simple smile
All with a wave of his hand.
