Every house should prepare gifts:
Clothes for the fighters.
Breathe out some warmth onto the front
On a cold winter day.
Before frost paved
All the rivers and the streams,
You donated your coat,
And I my winter boots.
When an anti-aircraft gunner near Moscow,
Struck the enemy with fire,
On that freezing cold night,
He wore your coat on his back.
Dressed in my winter boots,
Battling tirelessly day and night,
A Red Army soldier
Defended the city of Leningrad,
Soviet soldiers aren't afraid
Of ice-cold snow.
In the fields it will cover
The enemy’s final footstep.
