I was going to write (*) (*) (*) a good song on Volodya Vysotsky— (*) (*) (*) (*) (*)
As all his predecessors, (*) (*) (*) he’ll never come back from this trip. (*) (*) (*) (*) (*) (*)
Some declare that he was (*) (*) (*) an imprudent and prodigal person... (*) (*) (*) (*) (*)
He lived as he was able to, (*) (*) (*) one won’t find the sinless ’mongst people. (*) (*) (*) (*) (*) (*)

Our parting won’t long, (*) (*) (*) in a moment we’ll also be no-shows, (*) (*) (*) (*) (*)
And tread in his hot steps, (*) (*) (*) for each person that trip is ordained. (*) (*) (*) (*) (*) (*)
Let his hoarse baritone, (*) (*) (*) as before, make circles o’er his loved Moscow, (*) (*) (*) (*) (*)
And, together with him, (*) (*) (*) we’ll be mournful or mirthful again. (*) (*) (*) (*) (*) (*)

I was aiming to write (*) (*) (*) a good song on Volodya Vysotsky, (*) (*) (*) (*) (*)
But was trembling my hand, (*) (*) (*) and the melody didn’t fit the song... (*) (*) (*) (*) (*) (*)
To the black sinful Earth, (*) (*) (*) has come down the black stork of Moscow, (*) (*) (*) (*) (*)
And the white stork of Moscow (*) (*) (*) to white spotless Heaven has gone. (*) (*) (*) (*) (*) (*)
