Music by Sergei Mosin
Lyrics by Rasul Gamzatov
Long have you lived and, still content
To shelter from life's storms,
You cannot name a single friend
To whom your lone heart warms.
When years have passed and you are old,
People will turn and say:
"He lived a century, poor soul,
Who never lived a day."
