Poems and Songs of Vladimir Vysotsky. Family Affairs.

Commentary to the song “A Dialogue in front of the Television”.

As the epigraph to this song, there can be used the words of Porphyry Ivanov, peace be upon him: “Poor people are we...”

Here comes to mind Gabdulla Tukay’s distich “Calmness in the House”:

How to ensure calmness in the house?
There should be a blind husband with a dumb wife.

The song was written in 1973.
