Track 5: Byrastylahyy / Farewell

Also known as 'Legentey' this is a humorous folksong dating from the time of the Soviet revolution.

See djege-djege, My dear
See djege-djege, Legentey
See djege-djege, Open the gates
See djege-djege, Sit on a horse
See djege-djege, In the cold spring
See djege-djege, With the whip
See djege-djege, Get ready to go,
See djege-djege, I see you off
See djege-djege, Friend
See djege-djege, Legentey
See djege-djege, With permission
See djege-djege, Flying on your wings,
See djege-djege, I don't cry
See djege-djege, I don't feel empty
See djege-djege, I'm not offended
See djege-djege, My dear
See djege-djege, Legentey,
See djege-djege, For Soviet power
See djege-djege, You will fight
See djege-djege, The White Army
See djege-djege, You will crush them
See djege-djege, And enjoy it!
