    I recorded a busker playing a really nice tune in the street in St Petersburg over a year ago and really wanted to find out what the song was ever since. I noticed a few of the locals humming along so it must be fairly popular. The audio quality isnt superb but if anyone can get some of the lyrics that would be fantastic. Much appreciation!!! :)


  • А не спеть ли мне песню о любви
    А не выдумать ли новый жанр
    Попопсовей мотив и стихи
    И всю жизнь получать гонорар.

    Мою песню услышат тысячи глаз
    Мое фото раскупят сотни рук
    Мое солнце мне скажет - это про нас
    посмеется над текстом лучший друг
    И я стану свернховой суперзвездой
    Много денег, машина, все дела
    Улыбнувшись, ты скажешь - как крутой
    Я тебя обниму - ты права.

    Как крутой...

    Ты права...

    Как крутой я тебя обниму...

    Напишу ка я песню о любви
    Только что-то струна порвалась
    Да сломалось перо - ты прости -
    Может, в следующий раз,
    А сейчас пора спать.

    Chizh & Co - About Love

    Чиж и компания - О любви

    Should I sing a song about love,
    Should I invent a new genre,
    Some more pop to the tune and to the lyrics
    And to get royalty all my life.

    My song will be heard by thousands of ears
    My photo will be bought up by thousands of hands
    My sweetheart will tell me, "It's about us"
    My best friend will laugh on the text

    And I will become a new superstar
    Lots of money, a car, all the stuff
    You will say with a smile, "Like a "cool" man"
    I will hold you and answer, "you're right".

    I will write a song about love,
    But the string has broken
    And the pen is dead - please forgive me -
    May be next time,
    Now it's time to sleep.
