Hunt for Red October Main Title Lyrics
Words and Music by Basil Poledouris; Russian Translation by Herman Sinitzen
Cold, hard, empty.
Light that has left me,
Kak mohg znat ya shtoh tee oomriosh?
How could I know that you would die?
Do svidonia, byehreg rodnoy
Farewell again, our dear land.
Kak nam troodnag pridstahvit shtoh eto nyeh sohn.
So hard for us to imagine that it's real, and not a dream.
Rodina, dom radnoy,
Motherland, native home,
Do svidonia Rodina.
Farewell, our Motherland.
Ay. Avepakhod, avepakhod, nass val nahmarskaya zhdyot nyehdazh dyotsyah.
Let's go; the sea is waiting for us.
Lass zah vootmarskaya dah, ee preeboy!
The vastness of the sea is calling to us, and the tides!
Salute otsam ee nashem dedum
Hail to our fathers and forefathers.
Zahvietum eekh fsigdah vierney.
We are faithful to the covenant made with the past.
Tepierre nichtoh, nee astanoivit,
Now nothing can stop
Pabiedney shark, radnoy straney.
Our Motherland's victorious march.
Tiy pliyvee, pliyvee bestrashna,
Sail on fearlessly,
Gordest say viernykh marieye.
Pride of the Northern Seas.
Revoluytziye nadezhdah sgoostk vierif sekh luydeye.
Hope of the Revolution, you are the burst of faith of the people.
(The last two stanzas repeat a couple of times, then...)
In October, in October,
Rahpar tu ium miy nashe pabiediy.
We report our victories to you, our Revolution.
V'oktyabreh, v'oktyabreh, Novie meeir fahli numnashy dehidiy.
And to the heritage left by you for us.
