old jacket (stariy pedjak) lyrics – regina spektor

(originally by bulat okudzhava)

ya mnogo let pidzhak noshu.
davno potersya i ne nov on.
i ya zovu k sebe portnogo
i peresh*t pidzhak proshu.

ya govoryu emu shutya:
“perekroite vse inache.
sulit mne novyie udachi
iskusstvo kroyki i sh*tya”

ya poshutil. a on pidzhak
serezno tak pereshivaet,
a sam-to vse perezhivaet:
vdrug chto ne tak. takoy chudak.

odna zabota nayavu
v ego userde molchalivom:
chtobyi ya vyiglyadel schastlivyim
v tom pidzhake. poka zhivu.

on predstavlyaet eto tak:
edva lish ya pidzhak primeryu –
opyat v tvoyu lyubov poveryu
kak byi ne tak. takoy chudak.
opyat v tvoyu lyubov poveryu
kak byi ne tak. takoy chudak.
