Translations by CTAB

korneili shnaps is cruising throuh
he`s holding crook inside his pocket
his road leads him towards death
he gathers flowers in his bucket

korneli is melodicaly wistling
the tunes that range from smart to stupid
he isn`t trying have his pie
he knows he`ll be killed by cupid

Edit
Корнелий Шнапс идет по свету,
Сжимая крюк в кармане брюк.
Ведет его дорога в Лету,
Кругом цветет сплошной цурюк.

Корнелий мелодично свищет
Гармоний сложных и простых.
Он от добра добра не ищет...
Вот и конец пути: бултых!
