Well

When I read up on the subject, Pouledoris originally wrote the lyrics in English, and then had someone translate them to Russian...

So its somehow strange that the lyrics sound wierd in English...

I really love this piece, but I was worried that it might have been something that was written specifically for people who don't speak Russian, and that people who actually do may find the lyrics somewhat silly.

To those of you who actually speak russian.... Does the piece sound authentic?
