Vladimir Vysotsky. In a Faraway Kingdom.

I’ve prepared a report...

I’ve prepared a report,

Dear Mr. General:

That purveyor is a dog,

Dear Mr. General.

Our enemy is strong,

Dear Mr. General,

Our barracks are far off,

Dear Mr. General.

Our soldiers are too shy,

They won’t rush to the attack.

So we can’t go on to fight,

What we can is to go back.

1976.
