This weekend we are watching one of the best Soviet movies for kids “Old Hottabych”, in USA this movie is known as “The Flying Carpet”. “Old Hottabych” was made in 1956 by Gennadiy Kazansky (He directed “The Amphibian Man” movie, what we already watched here.)

“Land of Stars” (Звездная страна)
Russian lyrics and my English translation


Кто тебя выдумал,
Звёздная страна?
Снится мне издавна,
Снится мне она.
Выйду я из дому,
Выйду я из дому,
Прямо за пристанью
Бьётся волна.

Ветреным вечером
Смолкнут крики птиц.
Звездный замечу я
Свет из-под ресниц.
Тихо навстречу мне,
Тихо навстречу мне,
Выйдет доверчивый
Сказочный принц.

Самое главное-
Сказку не спугнуть.
Миру бескрайнему
Окна распахнуть.
Мчится мой парусник,
Мчится мой парусник,
Мчится мой парусник,
В сказочный путь.

Где же вы, где же вы,
Счастья острова?
Где побережия
Света и добра?
Там, где с надеждами,
Там, где с надеждами
Самые нежные
Дружат слова.

В детстве оставлены
Давние друзья.
Жизнь- это плаванье
В дальние края.
Песни прощальные,
Гавани дальние,
В жизни у каждого
Сказка своя.

Кто тебя выдумал,
Звёздная страна?
Снится мне издавна
Снится мне она.
Выйду я из дому,
Выйду я из дому,
Прямо за пристанью
Бьётся волна

Who has thought out You
The Land of Stars
I dream about it
for a long time
I dream about it
When I come out home
I see right behind the dock
Waves that beat.

When it’s windy evening
and birds stop to cry
I’ll notice light of stars
From under my eyelashes
He will come to meet me quietly
He is very gullible
Fairytale prince.

The most important thing –
Not to scary a fairytale,
To open your windows to
The immense world
My sailboat sweeps along
My sailboat sweeps along
My sailboat sweeps along
On the road of fairytale.

Where are you?
Where are you,
Islands of happiness?
Where are you,
shores of Light and Good?
They are where the hopes go
along with the sweetest words.

Good old friends are left
in childhood.
Life is a sailing to the
distant lands.
Farewell songs,
Distant harbors…
Everybody has his own
fairytale in his life.

Who has thought out You
The Land of Stars
I dream about it
for a long time
I dream about it
When I come out home
I see right behind the dock
Waves that beat.
