Vera Anatolyevna Pavlova: [Как вешаться не хочется...]

Portre of Vera Anatolyevna Pavlova

[Как вешаться не хочется...] (Russian)

Как вешаться не хочется,
как хлопотно стреляться,
как долго и как холодно
лететь вниз головой!
В порядке исключения
позволь в живых остаться
и помереть, как следует,
а не как Пушкин твой

[I’d hate to hang myself, the gun...] (English)

I’d hate to hang myself, the gun -
Is too much preparation,
To fall headfirst is just too long 
And way too cold outside!
Allow me to live out my life,
Just as a rare exception,
And die, like one should always die,
And not like Pushkin died!
