“May There Always Be Sunshine”,1962

Lyrics — Lev Oshanin

Music — Arkadij Ostrovskij

Artist — Big Children Choir

Translation — Tom Botting

The author of this translation is Tom Botting and it was done a while ago. The song itself was written in 1962 but the refrain is almost 90 years old and it was written by a four-year-old kid.

The song is translated into German, too: http://xmusic.me/q/LxQBFRdzRhApIjM6A2JTCh9zIB8ICR0/

We hope, one day it will come true! It is in our hands!

Bright blue the sky, sun up on high,

That is a little boy’s picture.

He drew for you, wrote for you, too,

Just to make clear what he drew:

Solnechnyj krug, nebo vokrug —

Jeto risunok mal’chishki.

Narisoval on na listke

I podpisal v ugolke:

May there always be sunshine,

May there always be blue skies,

May there always be Mummy,

May there always be me!

Pust’ vsegda budet solntse,

Pust’ vsegda budet nebo,

Pust’ vsegda budet mama,

Pust’ vsegda budu ja.

May there always be sunshine,

May there always be blue skies,

May there always be Mummy,

May there always be me!

Pust’ vsegda budet solntse,

Pust’ vsegda budet nebo,

Pust’ vsegda budet mama,

Pust’ vsegda budu ja.

My little friend, listen my friend,

Peace is the dream of the people,

Hearts old and young never have done

Singing the song you have sung.

Milyj moj drug, dobryj moj drug,

Ljudjam tak hochetsja mira.

I v tridcat’ pjat’ serdce opjat’

Ne ustajot povtorjat’:

Chorus Pripev

Soldier lad, stay! Hear what we say

War would make all of us losers.

Peace is our prize. Millions of eyes

Anxiously gaze at the skies.

Tishe, soldat, slyshish’, soldat, —

Ljudi pugajutsja vzryvov.

Tysjachi glaz v nebo gljadjat,

Guby uprjamo tverdjat:

Chorus Pripev

Down with all war! We want no more.

People, stand up for your children!

Sing, everyone, peace must be won,

Dark clouds must not hide the sun.

Protiv bedy, protiv vojny

Vstanem za nashikh mal’chishek.

Solntse — navek! Schast’e — navek! —

Tak povelel chelovek.

Chorus Pripev
