Russian Lyrics and English translation of the song Пряха (Spinner):

В низенькой светелке
Огонек горит,
Молодая пряха
У окна сидит.

Молода, красива,
Карие глаза,
По плечам развита
Русая коса.

Русая головка,
Думы без конца
Ты о чем мечтаешь,

In the lowish parlour
A light burns,
The young spinner
Sits under the window.

Young, beautiful,
Hazel eyes,
About her shoulders abounding
Honey tresses.

Honey head,
Thoughts without end…
What are you dreaming of,

English translation by Charles Prescott
