1. Swedish lyrics

Jag älskar Dig så högt Maria,
ja, bara för Ditt vackra, ljuva namn.
Ja, många sköna flickor har det namnet,
jag därför drunknat har i mången famn.

Ibland så är Du blond Maria.
Rätt ofta är Du mörk, ibland brunett,
Ja, man får riktigt ligga i och fria
och sköta korten på det bästa sätt.

Ja, svärmor efter svärmor har jag skaffat,
där har det inte varit någon brist.
Polisen har mig många gånger haffat
och skyllt mig för att vara bigamist.

Jag älskar Dig så högt Maria,
ja, bara för Ditt vackra, ljuva namn.
Ja, många sköna flickor har det namnet,
jag därför drunknat har i mången famn.

Solo…

Transliteration by Zhenya Russian

V te goda ya byl molozhe
I vlyublen togda byl ya
Do sih por mne vseh dorozhe
Pervaya lyubovʹ moya
V skazku ya navsegda vlyubl’on
Zabyvaya bolʹ
Po tebe ya shozhu s uma
Ya plen’on toboĭ

Dnem u nas byvali ssory
Noch darila nam lyubovʹ
Lish ona mogla tak ranitʹ
I lish ona mogla datʹ krylʹya vnovʹ
Do sih por ne ponimayu
Kak mog yeyö ya poteryat’
Ya ishchu yeyo povsyudu
Shtob snachala my smogli nachatʹ

V skazku ya navsegda vlyublen
Zabyvaya bolʹ
Po tebe ya shozhu s uma
Ya plen’on toboĭ

Kogda uidjesh (Russian version of “If You Were Gone”)

Lyrics by:  Larisa Rasin’kova, Elena Zherebtsova

Transliteration: Zhenya Russian

Kogda uĭdjosh, to lunnyĭ svet pogasnet
I v tishine umolknet penʹe ptits.
I shopot voln ne budet tak prekrasen
Pustynnyĭ bereg, odinokiĭ briz.

Kogda uĭjdosh, to zhizn’ vdrug opustyeet
Pechalʹna pesnʹ, chto ya poyu vo tʹme
O toĭ lyubvi i beskonechnom schast’e
Kogda vesna kazalas’ vechnoĭ mne.

No ty so mnoĭ, ved’ tol’ko v etom schast’e
Daĭ ruku mne i ot bedy spasësh.
Kak veter smel, igraet tvoim platʹem.
Menya ne stanet, yesli ty uĭdësh.

No ty so mnoĭ, ved’ tol’ko v etom schast’e
Daĭ ruku mne i ot bedy spasësh.
Kak veter smel, igraet tvoim platʹem.
Menya ne stanet, yesli ty uĭdʹosh.

Kogda uĭdjosh, to svet toskoyu polnyĭ
Pomerknet, stav nenuzhnym i pustym
Mir bez tebya pokazhet·sya mne tëmnym
Zhiznʹ – eto radostʹ, yesli ryadom ty.

No ty so mnoĭ, ved’ tol’ko v etom schast’e
Daĭ ruku mne i ot bedy spasësh.
Kak veter smel, igraet tvoim platʹem.
Menya ne stanet, yesli ty uĭdjosh.
