“Victory Day”, 1975

Lyrics — Vladimir Kharitonov
Music — David Tukhmanov
Artist — Lev Leshchenko
Translation — Tom Botting

Day of Victory! Oh, how far away it seemed!
Like a dying ember, hope once hardly gleamed.
Scorched and choking, dusty, weary miles were those!
We all did our best to bring our Victory close.
Den’ Pobedy, kak on byl ot nas daljok,
Kak v kostre potukhshem tajal ugoljok.
Byli versty, obgorelye, v pyli, —
Etot den’ my priblizhali kak mogli.
Oh, that Day of Victory!
Cordite in the air.
Day so youthful,
Silver threads in golden hair.
Day of beauty,
Tears of joy gleamed everywhere.
Day of Victory!
Day of Victory!
Day of Victory!
Etot Den’ Pobedy
Porokhom propakh,
Eto prazdnik
S sedinoju na viskakh.
Eto radost’
So slezami na glazakh.
Den’ Pobedy!
Den’ Pobedy!
Den’ Pobedy!
Night and day your molten steel would light the skies,
You, our land, our Mother, never closed your eyes.
Nights and days of struggle, bitter days were those!
We all did our best to bring our Victory close.
Dni i nochi u martenovskikh pechej
Ne smykala nasha Rodina ochej.
Dni i nochi bitvu trudnuju veli —
Etot den’ my priblizhali kak mogli.
Chorus Pripev
Mother, darling, though not all returned to you,
Let us run barefooted, racing through the dew!
Half the roads of Europe every soldier knows —
We all did our best to bring our Victory close.
Zdravstvuj, mama, vozvratilis’ my ne vse…
Bosikom by probezhat’sja po rose!
Pol-Evropy, proshagali, pol-Zemli, —
Etot den’ my priblizhali kak mogli.
Chorus Pripev
Chorus Pripev
