On a tropic night
“...So lovely is the moon on a tropic night. No heart can be immune on a tropic night. As a lonely guitar plays a serenade. There's music in the heart of each man and maid. Stars always linger low on a tropic night. When there's wine in the air, lips are always careless...” #RudolfFriml

Music and words by Alexander Vertinsky, Serge Ermoll and George Ivanoff 1936

Над розовым морем вставала луна,Во льду зеленела бутылка вина.И томно кружились влюбленные парыПод жалобный рокот гавайской гитары. Послушай, о как это было давно!Такое же море, и то же вино.Мне кажется, будто и музыка та же…Послушай! Послушай! Мне кажется даже! Нет, вы ошибаетесь, друг дорогой!Мы жили тогда на планете другой.И слишком устали, и слишком мы старыИ для этого вальса, и для этой гитары.

Над розовым морем

Music and words by Alexander Vertinsky, Serge Ermoll and George Ivanoff 1936

Над розовым морем вставала луна, Во льду зеленела бутылка вина.И томно кружились влюбленные парыПод жалобный рокот гавайской гитары. Послушай, о как это было давно!Такое же море, и то же вино.Мне кажется, будто и музыка та же…Послушай! Послушай! Мне кажется даже! Нет, вы ошибаетесь, друг дорогой!Мы жили тогда на планете другой.И слишком устали, и слишком мы старыИ для этого вальса, и для этой гитары.

Over The Rosy Sea/ The Pink Sea
“The moon rose over the pink sea. A green bottle of wine waited in the ice. Loving couples wistfully whirled around. To the mournful sound of the Hawaiian guitar Listen, how long has it been! The same sea, the same wine.Seems like the tune is also the same… Listen! Listen! It feels like that! No, you are wrong, my dear friend.Then we lived on the other planet. We are too tired and we are too old For that waltz and for that guitar….”

Над розовым морем

The moon rose over the pink sea. A green bottle of wine waited in the ice. Loving couples wistfully whirled around.
