This song is a wheel in a bus,

On a highway in eastern Poland-

A bus with a full load of high hopes.

 

For high notes

Of high musical art,

The full voices of thirty-five full hearts.

 

This is the wheel that turns round-

The bus that pulls to a stop-

The song we sing,

The program we finish in spite of a few missed entrances,

and unexpected avant-garde harmonies.

 

This was the first day,

This is the first night-

 

Was it good?

 

It was good.

 

This was the first day of tour,

of somebody’s  – tour de force

Ours?

God’s?

Was it good?

This is God’s house

  Slava v vuishnikh Bogu

 

This is God’s house

ina zemli mir

In which it pleases Him to dwell:

  v chelovetsekh blagovoleuiye.
