RUSSIAN SONG
sung to the tune of the piece of the same name
by T. Saliutrinskaya
in the Introductory Repertoire Album
of the
Royal Conservatory of Music of Toronto published by Frederick Harris Music

Mother Russia is calling me.
From the Steppes I hear her sing.
She is beautiful; she is terrible.
And I know I must go.

I strayed from the one true path.
I was young and did not know.
Now I know the truth, my own beating heart
is the one faithful guide.

Do not grieve when I have gone.
I have found what can’t be found.
Now I know the truth; I know you can, too.
And join with me, soon.

Mother Russia is calling me.
From the Steppes I hear her sing.
She is beautiful; she is terrible.
And I know I must go.
