    Your, nobility, lady Separation,
    We have been friends for a long time,
    That there, is a thing,
    A letter in the envelope,
    Wait a little, do not tear it
    Do not bring me to death,
    Bring me to love (Repeat last two lines)

    Your nobility, lady foreign land
    Hot is your embrace,
    Only you did not love
    In tender connections, stop, do not call,
    Do not lead me to death
    Bring me to love (repeat last two lines)

    Your nobility, lady Luck (title of the song)
    For whom you are kind,
    For whom you are otherwise,
    9 grams to the heart
    Stop, do not call,
    Lead me not to death,
    bring me to love (repeat last two lines)

    Your nobility, lady victory,
    It means, my song,
    has not been sung to the end,
    Stop, Devils,
    They take an oath on blood,
    Bring me not to death
    bring me to love (repeat last two lines)
