Wars and hunger we have endured enough, Heard much, swallowed promises, - And bumped off the tsar and a temporary executive power thereafter, Because their time is over. But if somewhere somebody is hoping for something Then we shall let him know among other things: No matter what, your time won’t come back - Somehow we shall take care of that. But alltogether the Provisional Authority amiss From now on is Soviet power above all. Which are here temporary, - step down! Now step down! Ended has your time!
