    Salute to troops

    Thanksgiving: Thanks For Your Service Worldwide

     

    Doing my Singing Translations I capture the true color of the original music, so their tune is never changed and you can and should follow the original seize and bit of the same music at your performance or even domestic purr :-). Once again, all my translations are proved to their tunes, so you are encouraged to try with your own performance.

     

    I am citizen of The United States - country of immigrants. Independently from a fact that such a song about military officers is a long time anticipated, or like here, due cause my modest participation became available just now being slightly adjusted to worldwide issues stably created by still imperfect people, I did it by my own call, just to respond timely.

     

    The Officers are color of a nation in any country. They are our beauty and worldwide representatives. They're mostly commissioned by sovereign power of their country and many of them were specifically commissioned being yet cadets. History knows many bright examples of their heroical durability and allegiance, and that was always highly appreciated by opposing army professionals.

     

    Each of them represented their country and all they together are always represent The Officers. Russian officers and audience stand in attention from the first accords of the song, which I see shall be appropriated worldwide, and as such I've done its translation into English. Thanks to the author, Oleg Gazmanov, who said that "This song belongs to millions of people", it is clear that latter is not a property of a Russian Federation, and I'd like to clarify - it is designed to praise The Officers. Thanks.

     

    THE OFFICERS

     

    Musical support is here: youtube.com/watch?v=FPZFNe2N5kY - official

     


    1
    I am singing, The Officers, hitting the stretched nerves
    I am turning to faith | within all the accords
    You abandoned career and at no hesitation
    Taking deadly threat on a chest | for your country as is

     

    2
    You survive your deployment, thought your honor's not messed
    And career was not built on the soldiers blood
    Hence I sing to The Officers who heeded then mothers' pleas
    And returned to them | their sons being alive

     

    R
    You're commissioned, you're commissioned and your hearts are at gunpoint
    For your country and its freedom to the end
    You're commissioned, you are guard, let the freedom will be bright
    And encourages our hearts to sound in the unison

     

    3
    I am singing, The Officers, how can we secure all your trust?
    On the open graves all your souls are wheezing.
    Oh, my God, what we brothers, have committed | we indeed could not save them
    Hence they all are eternally | starring in our eyes

     

    4
    And again new deployment, our guys disappear in sunset
    There was country call, as this always happened to be
    And again you are leaving, maybe, straight to the heaven
    And then from your heights you'll excuse all of us

     

    So, where are you leaving, maybe, straight to the heaven
    And then from your heights you'll excuse all of us

     

    R
    You're commissioned you're commissioned and your hearts are at gunpoint
    For your country and its freedom to the end
    You're commissioned, you are guard, let the freedom will be bright
    And encourages our hearts to sound in the unison

     

    R
    You're commissioned, you're commissioned and your hearts are at gunpoint
    For your country and its freedom to the end
    You're commissioned, you are guard, let the freedom will be bright
    And encourages our hearts to sound in the unison

    the another last romantic ©, Los Angeles, CA 2014

     

    I am writing, as I am feeling, being reluctant to sweet- talk ... so I believe that the deliberate omission in my work the personalness, like Russia, Afghanistan will not diminish a song quality.

     

    Note to better performance:

    Each line was especially divided in two parts to follow tune; the sign "^" means raising of a voice;

     

    Also for this song:

    "You're commissioned" means "You are The Officer", because in American English the stress in the word "officer" is on the first vowel, but in Russian, the language of original work, the stress is already on the third vowel, hence to take tune untouched wording became just slightly changed.
