The song 'Sails of 'Kruzenshtern' - text by Alexander Gorodnitsky, performed by Sergei and
Tatiana Nikitin.

Straightened pennants proudly, don't wait for me soon to be wife.
Again boil at the side of a steep wave Ambassador.
Under the North wind unfaithful, under the southern skies blue
Again the sails of the 'Kruzenshtern' rustle above my head.

And at home sometimes at night as soon as you open the window,
Again the wind sings me a tight canvas
Let seagulls blinding flash soar above me in the sky.
Boys, boys, boys, let them envy me forever.
And old age will recede probably, it has no power over me,
While the sails of 'Kruzenshtern' noise above my head.
