She was often referred to as ‘Miss Volga’ in America, and none other than ‘the Russian Edith Piaf’ in France.

Течет река Волга (The river Volga flows)

Издалека долго течет река Волга,
Течет река Волга, конца и края нет
Среди хлебов спелых, среди снегов белых
Течет моя Волга ,а мне семнадцать лет.

Сказала мать :”Бывает все, сынок.
Быть может, ты устанешь от дорог,
Когда придешь домой в конце пути,
Свои ладони в Волгу опусти”.

Издалека долго течет река Волга,
Течет река Волга, конца и края нет.
Среди хлебов спелых, среди снегов белых
Течет моя Волга, а мне уж тридцать лет.

Твой первый взгляд, твой первый плеск весла-
Все было ,только речка унесла.
Я не грущу о той весне былой,
Взамен ее твоя любовь со мной.

Издалека долго течет река Волга,
Течет река Волга, конца и края нет.
Среди хлебов спелых, среди снегов белых
Гляжу в тебя, Волга, седьмой десяток лет.

Здесь мой причал и здесь мои друзья –
Все ,без чего на свете жить нельзя.
С далеких плесов в звездной тишине
Другой мальчишка подпевает мне.

Издалека долго течет река Волга,
Течет река Волга, конца и края нет.
Среди хлебов спелых, среди снегов белых
Течет моя Волга, а мне семнадцать лет,
А мне семнадцать лет .

From far away
The river Volga long flows,
The river Volga flows,
And there is no end to it.
Among ripe crops, among white snows my Volga flows,
And I am seventeen.

My Mother has told me, Anything can happen, son.
You could get tired of traveling the roads.
When you come home at the end of the path,
Dip your hands into Volga “.

From far away
The river Volga long flows,
The river Volga flows,
And there is no end to it.
Among ripe crops, among white snows my Volga flows,
And I am thirty already.
That first look and that
First splash of a paddle –
All that has happened, but the river carried it away.
I do not long for that past spring,
I have your love with me instead.

Among ripe crops, among white snows I have been looking at you, Volga,
For seventy years.
This is my harbor, all of my friends are here,
Everything one cant live without.
From distant reaches of the river in star silence
Another boy sings along with me.

From far away
The river Volga long flows,
The river Volga flows,
And there is no end to it.
Among ripe crops, among white snows my Volga flows,
And I am seventeen, and I am seventeen, and I am seventeen.
