Soldier of his country,
You deserve a reward.
Today all is calm,
May you dream dreams
Where there is no war,
I’ll be around for a while.
I put the icon
At the head of silence
And you will see dreams,
I’ll be around for a while.
I’m so proud of you,
When the coat you pull out
And friends come
In the August holiday.
I’m happy when a guitar
In hand you take
And pour the song of Russian special forces…
