I can't help writing about a well-known Russian song "Katyusha" in my diary. Recently I've found it in English on the Internet. I was quite surprised as I hadn't heard this version before.

After listening to the song I desired to learn it by heart. When I was young I've often been singing the "Katyusha" in Russian. I thought I would learn it in English and would be singing it taking a shower:)




Apple trees and pear trees were a flower,
River mist was rising all around.
Young Katyusha went strolling by the hour
On the steep banks,
O'er the rocky ground.

By the river's bank she sang a love song
Of her hero in a distant land.
Of the one she'd dearly loved for so long,
Holding tight his letters in her hand.

Oh, my song, song of a maiden's true love,
To my dear one travel with the sun.
To the one who Katyusha loves so,
Bring my greetings to him, one by one.

Let him know that I am true and faithful,
Let him hear the love song that I send.
Tell him as he defends our home that grateful,
True Katyusha our love will defend.



Apple trees and pear trees were a flower,
River mist was rising all around.
Young Katyusha went strolling by the hour
On the steep banks,
O'er the rocky ground.
