Songs of Other Authors Performed by Vladimir Vysotsky.

Commentary to the song “The Wind”.

The last stanza has much in common with the words of Porphyry Ivanov, peace be upon him, from his tale “The Forester’s Daughter”: “If woman has the in­ten­tion of do­ing some­thing, nothing will turn her off.”

Here is the quatrain “If woman thinks of anything...” by the author of this publication, which takes up this question:

If woman thinks of anything, she’ll try
To carry out it, even if she can die.
Thank God the cussed cows have cut horns:
But when two say the same, we take their words.

The song was written in 1960 or 1961.
