Lyrics

ANATOLE
Everyone raise a glass! Whoa!

Well, comrades
We've had our fun
Lived, laughed and loved
Friends of my youth,
When shall we meet again?
I'm going abroad

Goodbye my gypsy lovers
All my revels here are over
Well goodbye, Matryosha
Kiss me one last time, whoa
Remember me to Steshka
There, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Wish me luck my gypsy lovers
Now goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

ALL
Goodbye my gypsy lovers
All my revels here are over
Well goodbye, Matryosha
Kiss me one last time, whoa
Remember me to Steshka
There, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Wish me luck my gypsy lovers
Now goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Hurrah!
Smash the glasses on the floor!
Let's go! Let's go!

(They start to leave.)

ANATOLE
No, wait, wait, wait!
Shut the door!
First we have to sit down!
That's the way

It's a Russian custom

(They shut the door and all sit down for a moment.)

All right

(They start to leave)

DOLOKHOV
Wait, wait, wait!
Where's the fur cloak?

I have heard what elopements are like
She'll rush out more dead than alive
Just in the things she's wearing
If you delay at all, there'll be tears and 'Papa' and 'Mama'
And she's frozen in a minute and must go back
But you wrap the fur cloak round her
And you carry her to the sleigh
That's the way
That's the way

ALL
That's the way
That's the way

BALAGA
Let's get outta here!
And the troika tore down Nikitski Boulevard
Whoa! Giddyup, now! Whoa! Whoa!

ALL
Hey Balaga
Ho Balaga
Hey hey ho Balaga
Hey hey Balaga
The famous troika driver

Hey Balaga
Ho Balaga
Hey hey ho Balaga
Hey hey Balaga
The famous troika driver

DOLOKHOV
When they reached the gate Dolokhov whistled
The whistle was answered, and a maidservant ran out

MAIDSERVANT
Come in through the courtyard or you'll be seen; she'll come out directly

DOLOKHOV
Dolokhov stayed by the gate
Anatole followed the maid into the courtyard
Turned the corner, ran up to the porch

(Anatole is stopped by Marya D.)

MARYA D.
You will not enter my house, scoundrel!

DOLOKHOV
Anatole, come back!
Betrayed! Betrayed!
Betrayed, Anatole!
Come back!
Betrayed! Betrayed! Betrayed!

(Dolokhov rushes in and rescues Anatole. They flee.)
