- Hey, chauffeur, drive to Butyrka settlement,
Where the jail’s, - about it be quick!
- You bet, comrade, pretty late you are, for a couple of years: not a battlement -
They’re dismantling the whole prison for the brick.
- Such a pity: morning felt some kind of reason
For me seeing the native places, hitherto...
Well, smart driver, the other way: drive on and hit Taganka prison, -
Wanna look at it, I would be there too.
- They’ve destroyed the old Taganka building,
Smashed completely, all of it, to hell!
- Turn reverse, smart driver, whirl it to and fro - your steering-wheeling:
We’ll return with nothing, good and well.
But, chauffeur, still let us smoke, as well as, -
It'll be better - off we'll quickly toss!
Let us drink for having not remained in Russia any goals,
For the removal of all the Russian camps, of cause.
