Let’s ask our Chief
whether this mad scribe’s tale is true this tale about the foreign troopers
and Tsar Peter’s soldiers! Shall we? Father, come out to us! Your children are calling you! Greetings, children In joy and glory,
here’s to your good health Why did you call me?
Has anything happened to harm you? The troopers and Tsar Peter’s guards
are attacking us! Lead us into battle! To battle? Do you remember, children,
how we saved Moscow fighting the foe,
up to our ankles in blood? Now things are different.
Tsar Peter is a tyrant! Go to your homes and await the decision of fate Farewell! Good Lord! Keep the enemy from us and in Thy great clemency protect us and our homes
