    How ravishing the Russian evenings are
    Love, and champagne, and sunsets over alleys
    And walks and the amusements in the summer -
    How ravishing the Russian evenings are.

    Beautiful women, lackeys, servants, there they are
    The waltz of Schubert and the crumbling of french bread and
    Love, and champagne, and sunsets over alleys -
    How ravishing the Russian evenings are.

    How ravishing the Russian evenings are
    Sunset aflame and shining like a band and
    Only the heavens in the blue eyes of the poet -
    How ravishing the Russian evenings are

    May all be dream, may love be game - wherefore
    For you are all my passion and embraces?
    But in this world my memory remains of
    How ravishing the Russian evenings are.

    May all be dream, may love be game - wherefore
    For you are all my passion and embraces?
    But in this world my memory remains of
    How ravishing the Russian evenings are.
