Vladimir Vysotsky. The Criminal Code.

Don’t ye find fault with my young age...Translated by Akbar Muhammad.

Don’t ye find fault with my young age,
In such a case the years are unimportant —
The Christ was sold at his middle age,
And I was a teenager only.
The Christ was sold at his middle age,
And I was a teenager only.

Let us compare his fate with mine —
He had eleven apostles to confide in,
And I do think here day and night —
Which one of my old chums confined me?
And I do think here day and night —
Which one of my old chums confined me?

1965.
