The main thing is the take-off,
A handful of snow down your collar.
I know the best view on this city.
Masha and the Bear,
We've got some copper in our pockets.
Coin by coin, the bell jar is filling,
But the sleeper will never awaken.
Remind me if I sang this before -
I don't remember a single word anyway.
Remind me if I sang this before,
And I will sing it once more.
It's the one thing I'm good for.
There's a border, beyond it steel doesn't sting,
And the blind man won't see and the wise man is clueless.
Remind me if I sang this before.
Here's the flame that devours everything.
Masha and the Bear!
This Sun won't ever set.
They won't ever come searching for us.
But leave them this thread to hang on to -
Tell them you'll give them a call,
Masha and the Bear.
This one contains one of my favorite lines in the context ("remind me if i sang this before"). There's also a quote from Joseph Brodsky, and a hint of Brodsky's structure as well, so I gave it some semi-classicist punctuation like I would a Brodsky poem.
