    Finally, having climbed half the world around,
    My small boys are in bed fast asleep
    Fast asleep my green-eyed nations, sleep my treasures dirty-faced,
    Little noses, little schnoses, sniff.

    So peaceful and good they are while sleeping
    In the world there are no better kids
    Bruises like bright peas
    Burning on their knees and
    Blankets thrown aside upon the bed
    Bruises like bright peas
    Burning on their knees and
    Blankets thrown aside upon the bed.

    But tomorrow if you know ahead as to
    Into which directions their paths lead
    If without invitation
    To go to a drawing lesson and
    Into outer space barefoot to tread
    If without invitation
    To go to a drawing lesson and
    Into outer space barefoot to tread

    Tiredly over them the clock is beating
    Peacefully on earth the children sleep
    Sleep my little desperadoes
    Sleep my Titovs and Gagarins
    Little noses, little schnoses, sniff
    Sleep my little desperadoes
    Sleep my Titovs and Gagarins
    Little noses, little schnoses, sniff.
