13. Murka

Прибыла в Одессу банда из Амура
В банде были урки, шулера,
Банда занималась тёмными делами,
И за ней следило губ.ЧК
Речь держала баба звали её Муркой,
Хитрая и смелая была
Даже злые урки и те боялись Мурку,
Воровскую жизнь она вела.
Мурка-ты мой мурёночек,|
Мурка-ты мой котёночек |
Мурка-Маруся Климова |2р.
Прости любимого |
Вот пошли провалы начались облавы
Много стало наших попадать,
Как узнать скорее кто-же стал шалавой,
Что-бы за измену покарать.
Раз пошли на дело-выпить захотелось,
Мы зашли в шикарный ресторан,
Там сидела Мурка в кожанной тужурке,
А из-под полы торчал наган.
Слушай, в чём же дело, чё ты не имела,
Разве я тебя не одевал,
Кольца и браслеты, юбки и жакеты,
Разве я тебе не добывал.
Здравствуй мо я Мурка здравствуй дорогая
Здравствуй моя Мурка и прощай,
Ты зашухерила всю нашу малину, |
И за это пулю получай. |2р.
ПРИПЕВ: ... Прости любимого -2р.


In the night darkness only the wind is blowing
But a meeting near the market place was held
There the hooligans, evil bandits
Were gathering for an urgent committee.
A woman made a speech, her name was Murka
She was sly and brave
Even the evil bandits were afraid of Murka
Because she was living a thief life

Murka, you are my purring one
Murka, you are my Kitty
Murka, Marusya Klimova
Forgive your sweetheart

Everything suddenly went wrong, round­ups began
Many members of our gang disappeared
How to find out who became a traitor
To punish him for the change
Once we went out for a robbery and decided to drink
We entered an expensive restaurant
Murka was sitting there in leather coat
And in her pocket there was a gun
Murka, what's happened was there something you didn't have?
Didn't I dress you?
Rings and bracelets, skirts and jackets
Didn't I give all it to you?
Hello, my Murka, my dear Murka
Hello, my Murka and good­bye!
You have revealed all our business
And now get a bullet for that!


Dans l'obscurité de la nuit, seul le vent souffle
Mais une réunion à la place du marché avait lieu
Là, les voyous, les méchants bandits
Étaient réunis pour un comité d'urgence.
Une femme prononça un discours, son nom était Murka
Elle était rusée et courageuse
Même les méchants bandits avaient peur de Murka
Parce qu'elle vivait une vie de voleur
Murka, tu es celle qui ronronne
Murka, tu es mon chaton
Murka, Maroussia Klimova
Pardonne ton amoureux

Soudainement tout a mal viré, les arrestations ont commencées
Beaucoup de membres de notre gang ont disparus
Comment savoir qui était devenu un traître
Le punir pour sa trahison
Une fois on est sorti pour faire un vol et on a décidé de boire
On est entrés dans un restaurant luxueux
Murka y était assise avec un manteau de cuir
Et dans sa poche il y avait un fusil
Murka, qu’est-ce qu’il s’est passé, y avait t-il quelque chose que t’as pas eu?
N’est-ce pas vrai que je t’habillais?
Bagues et bracelets, jupes et vestes
N’est-ce pas vrai que je t’ai tout donné?
Salut ma Murka, ma chère Murka
Bonjour ma Murka et adieu!
Tu as révélée tout nos plans
Et tu mérites une balle pour ça!
