ДДТ (Юрий Шевчук) - МЁРТВЫЙ ГОРОД РОЖДЕСТВО
по-английски

не пройти мне ответом
там, где пули вопрос
где каждый взгляд = миллиметр
время = пять папирос

мёртвый город хоронит
свои голоса
потерялись и бродят
между стен небеса

рождество наступило
в подвале темно.
сколько душ погубило
напротив окно?

я забыл, что в природе
ещё что-то есть.
шестого приняли роды *
без шести минут шесть

припев:
а наутро выпал снег
после долгого огня
этот Снег убил меня,
погасил короткий век.
я набрал его в ладонь
сплюнул в Белый грязь и пыль
то ли небыль, то ли быль
то ли вечность то ли вонь

этот город разбился
но не стал крестом.
павший город напился
жизни перед постом

здесь контуженные звёзды
новый жгут Вифлеем.
на пелёнки берёзы **
руки-ноги не всем

с рождеством Вас, Железо !
по-вя-зка - венцом.
медсестра - Мать Тереза
с симпатичным лицом

прошлой ночью как шорох
вспоминались дни -
как мы задёрнули шторы
как мы были одни

припев
а наутро выпал снег
после долгого огня
этот Снег убил меня
погасил ДВАДЦАТЫЙ век.
я набрал его в ладонь
сплюнул в Белый грязь и пыль
то ли небыль, то ли быль
то ли вечность то ли вонь

не пройти мне ответом
там где пули вопрос
где каждый взгляд миллиметр
время пять папирос

мёртвый город с пустыми
глазами со мной
я стрелял холостыми
я вчера был живой

Аа аа а, аа аа а
Аа аа а, аа, аа, а
Аа аа а, аа аа а
Аа аа а, аа, а, а
Аа а

Перевод песни

DEAD CITY. CHRISTMAS
translation in English

I can't go past the answer
when the question is bullet,
every sight means a target,
time means five cigarettes

The Dead City is burying
all the voices and sounds...
There are clouds get lost there
and roaming between its walls heaven-skies

The Day of Christmas is near
it is dark in the basement.
How many souls has killed
the opposite window-fence?

I've forgotten that there is
in the world something else
On the 6-th got Devils birthday
at 6 minutes to 6 A.M.

chorus:
In the morning snow falls
After the long fire-fight
that snow has killed my person
it has blown out my short life.
i took it full into my hand
I spit dirt & dust into the White
Either fable, or the Truth...
Eternity, or the bad smell...

That city is crashed
but it did not become the cross
Fallen city is drunken
with life before the Great Fast

The contused starlights, here
illuminate the new Bethlehem.
Birches become the graveclothes
Not every body has arms & legs

Merry Christmas, Sir the Iron
bandage is like a wreath (crown of thorns)
hospital nurse is Mother Teresa
with a quiet pretty face

last night, as a rustle,
i remembered the moment (those days)
when she closed the curtains
when we were alone together (in bed)

chorus-2:
On next morning snow fell down
After the long hot fire-fight
that snow has killed my body
& extinguished the 20-th century time
i took it full into my hand
I spit dirt & dust into the white
Either Fable, or the Truth
Either ages, or the stench

I cant go past the answer
if the question is a shot
every look counts millymeter
time longs five cigar butts

The dead city with its spiritless
and hollow eyes became my grave.
I was shooting blank cartridges
I was still alive, but Yesterday

аааааааа
аа
а
.......................................

2-d variant

I cant pass by the answer (GO PAST)
if the question is bullet
every look means millimeter
time means five cigarettes

the Dead City is burying
its voices \and sounds...
(there) are get lost and wander
clouds between the walls (heaven skies)

The Christmas is near (become) coming in, came, has come
it is dark in the cellar /underground, vault, basement/
How many souls has killed
the opposite window-fence? \facing

I've forgotten that there is
something else in the world. (in the world something else)
On the 6-th (january) they-ve assisted in childbirth \ delivered a child
at 6 o'clock without 6 minutes (at without 6 minutes 6 A.M.)

chorus:
In the morning snow falls
After the long fire-fight
that snow killed me
it has blown out my short life
i took it into my hand
I spit dirt & dust into the white
Either fable, or the Truth
Eternity, or the bad smell... \ either ages, or the stink-stench

the contused star-lights, are here
are burning the new Biblehem.
Birches become the graveclothes |diappers \ nappies; swaddling clothes\- shroud, cerement, winding sheet,
Not every body has arms & legs

Merry Christmas, Sir the Iron
bandage is (like) a crown of thorns \ wreath
(registered) nurse is Mother Teresa
with a quiet pretty face

last night, as a rustle,
i remembered those days
when she closed the curtains
when we were alone together

In the morning snow fell down
After the long fire-fight
that snow killed my person \ body
it has blown out the 20-th century time \ put out [extinguish], turned off\ covered, swept up, drifted against
i took it full into my hand
I spit dirt & dust into the white
Either Fable, or the Truth
Either ages, or the stench

I cant go through the answer
where the question is a bullet
every look is a millymeter
time means - five cigarettes

the dead city with hollow eyes\ (безучастный - о взгляде) listless, spiritless; lifeless
(is now) became my forever home.
I was shooting blank cartridges \dummy cartridge — учебный патрон, холостой патрон
Yesterday I was alive

DEAD CITY CHRISTMAS - poetic full explanation

I can't be the Man-Answer, going past by the road further
when the question taken place there is a bullet,
there, where every Sight means a target,
there, where the Time means five cigarettes

The Dead City is burying inside in silence - the voices and sounds
There are clouds get lost & wandering between its ruined walls
= heaven-skies are roaming there (the city lies high in the mountains)

The Day of Christmas celebration is near (7 january in Russian Orthodox Church)
it is dark in the cellar-basement.
How many souls has already killed
the opposite-facing window-fence? (sniper who sits hiding there)

I've forgotten that there is something else in the world.
(i'm concentrated on the battle for life and forgot about the celebration)
On the 6-th (january) has got become Devils Anty-Christ birthday
at 6 minutes to 6 A.M. - he arrived arised (today, on the X-mas Eve he's alive)

chorus:
In the morning snow falls
After the long fire-fight night
snow-cold has killed my person
it has blown out my short life.
i took it fullhand into my hand
I spit dirt & dust into the White /snow
This song is - Either fable, or the Truth...
Our life is - either Eternity, or the bad smell...

that city is crashed
but it didnt become the cross (not gave up)
fallen city is drunken
with (blood) life before the great fast \on the Eve of the Lent

Contused stars here are illuminating like if its the New Bethlehem.
birches are used as the graveclothes = diappers in manger for deadmen
unfortunately, Not every body has his own arms & legs here

I wish You Merry Christmas, Sir the Iron
My head-bandage is like a wreath (looks like Jesus crown of thorns)
hospital nurse is as kind as Mother Teresa
she's young, with a quiet pretty face

last night, as a rustle-whisper,
i remembered the moment (those days)
when she closed the curtains
and then we were alone together (in bed, sex, love)

On next morning snow fell down
After the long hot fire-fight
that snow has killed my body
& extinguished the 20-th century time
i took it full into my hand
I spit dirt & dust into the white
Either Fable, or the Truth
Either ages, or the stench

I cant go past the answer
if the question is a shot,
every look counts millymeter
time longs five cigar butts

The dead city with its spiritless and hollow eyes became my last home.
I was shooting blank cartridges
I was still alive, but Yesterday (he was alive 6 january, but on the 7-th he died)

further explanation:

he could-not find the answer on the road of bullets, he could not pass by and was killed

the question was - what is life? - Either fable, or the Truth...
Eternity, or the bad smell...

stink, stench вонь stench вонь reek, stench, stink,
трупный запах putrid smell, odor cadaverous
