Thank You, My Dear - Mikhail Boyarsky (1992)

0

The song “Thank you, my dear” was written by the author and composer Viktor Reznikov whose life suddenly and tragically ended in 1992.

His car collided with another car as he drove out of the courtyard of his house. For some time after the accident, Reznikov was still alive. Lying in the hospital bed and asked Mikhail Boyarsky to continue to sing his songs so that they would not be forgotten. So the song “Thank you, my dear”, previously performed by the author, got a second life.

Since then, this song has become an integral part of the Boyarsky family and it fits with them perfectly: loving parents raised a son and beautiful daughter (you could see Mikhail Boyarsky’s daughter, actress Elizaveta Boyarskaya, in the video to the song “You Exists in This World“).

Lyrics

  • Сла́дкий сон погаси́л глаз ла́сковых пла́мя.
    Ти́хо гу́бы твои́ чуть тро́ну губа́ми я...
    А на губа́х твои́х уста́лый день зати́х,
    Ты сла́дко спишь а я шепчу́ тебе́, родна́я:

  • A sweet dream put down the flame of gentle eyes.
    I will quietly and slightly touch your lips with mine...
    And on your lips, a tired day has calmed down,
    You are sleeping sweetly and I whisper to you, my dear:

  • Спаси́бо за день, спаси́бо за ночь,
    Спаси́бо за сы́на и за дочь,
    Спаси́бо за то что средь бо́ли и зла
    Наш те́сный миро́к ты сберегла́,
    Ты мне сберегла́.

  • Thanks for the day, thanks for the night,
    Thanks for the son and for the daughter,
    Thanks that among pain and evil
    You managed to save our little world,
    You me it for me.

  • Вре́мя сви́то в кольцо́ и дочь на́ша, ве́рю,
    Та́кже скло́нит лицо́, как над колыбе́лью ты.
    И кто-то в свой черёд ей ти́хо пропоёт...
    Ты сла́дко спишь а я шепчу́ тебе́, родна́я:

  • Time is twisted into a ring and our daughter, I believe,
    Will one day bow her face, like you above the cradle.
    And someone, in his turn, will sing to her quietly:
    You are sleeping sweetly and I whisper to you, my dear...

  • Спаси́бо за день, спаси́бо за ночь,
    Спаси́бо за сы́на и за дочь,
    Спаси́бо за то что средь бо́ли и зла
    Наш те́сный миро́к ты сберегла́.

  • Thanks for the day, thanks for the night,
    Thanks for the son and for the daughter,
    Thanks that among pain and evil
    You managed to save our little world.

  • Вы мои́ кровь и плоть так сча́стливо спи́те,
    Е́сли ви́дит Госпо́дь, пусть бу́дет защи́той вам.
    И бо́льше, мо́жет быть, мне не́ о чем моли́ть.
    Ты сла́дко спишь, а я шепчу́ тебе́, родна́я:

  • You, my blood and flesh, sleep so happily,
    If the Lord sees, may he be your protection.
    And I maybe have nothing more to pray for.
    You are sleeping sweetly, and I whisper to you, my dear:

  • Спаси́бо за день, спаси́бо за ночь,
    Спаси́бо за сы́на и за дочь,
    Спаси́бо за то, что средь бо́ли и зла
    Наш те́сный миро́к ты сберегла́.

  • Thanks for the day, thanks for the night,
    Thanks for the son and for the daughter,
    Thanks that among pain and evil
    You managed to save our little world.

  • И бо́льше, мо́жет быть, мне не́ о чем моли́ть.
    Ты сла́дко спишь, а я шепчу́ тебе́, родна́я:
    Спаси́бо за день, спаси́бо за ночь,
    Спаси́бо за сы́на и за дочь,
    Спаси́бо за то, что средь бо́ли и зла
    Наш те́сный миро́к ты сберегла́.
    Ты мне сберегла́.

  • And I maybe have nothing more to pray for.
    You are sleeping sweetly, and I whisper to you, my dear:
    Thanks for the day, thanks for the night,
    Thanks for the son and for the daughter,
    Thanks that among pain and evil
    You managed to save our little world.
