Prez gorite, prez poliata,
Pod zvezdite, nad zhitata

I know her, used to follow everywhere we'd go
And it's so sweet, now she's sleeping with a boy I know
The boy I know, knows a pretty girl in every town
And the way they look, they were made to let each other down

She got her face from the same house where she stole her clothes
On the same street, there's a dance hall where nobody goes
Four to the floor, stealing cigarettes of '90s ghosts
And then at Christmas time, 'till we exceed the recommended dose

Prez gorite, prez poliata,
Pod zvezdite, nad zhitata
Shte patuvat prez noshta,
Risuvat prez denia i shte spiat do obed
Viatarat gi bruli na srebaren MZ
I shte piat gorski chai ot zlaten samovar
Litsata im greiat s ognenen zagar.

I know her, used to follow everywhere we'd go
And it's so sweet, now she's sleeping with a boy I know
The boy I know, knows a pretty girl in every town
And the way they look, they were made to let each other down


[ Translation of Bulgarian lyrics ]

Through the forests, through the fields
Under the stars, above the wheats

(English lyrics)

Through the forests, through the fields
Under the stars, above the wheats
They will travel through the night
They paint during the day and sleep until noon
The wind burns them on a silver MZ
And they will drink forest tea from a golden samovar
Their faces shine with a fiery tan.

(English lyrics)

    General Commentin every song, when you hear the Bulgarian, they are marxist nursery rhymes sung by Mira.

    General Commenti speak Bulgarian and this translated is:

    Through the forest, Through the valley
    Under the stars, Above the wheat
    They will travel through the night,
    They draw during the day and they will sleep till noon
    The wind is blowing at them on a silver MZ
    And they will drink forest tea from a golden samovar (I don't know what a samovar is, sorry!)
    Their faces burn with fire burns.
