Old Men's Dreams

Music: Russian Folksong
English lyrics: M Mallows

Two old men wrapped up in overcoats
Dreaming of youth and of the past
Glory adventure remembered
Somehow they forget all the rest

The tears and the fears and the settings?
Days when they trembled with cold
Songs they don't recall singing
But that is how some men grow old

Young men, so much before you
Young men, the world waits for you
Dreams cannot be ever ?
Your dreams must never be old

Young men play as a soldier
Dream what you need to get through
But you see when you're older
That some old men's dreams
Don't come true
