Old Odessa thieves' song

lyrics

Лимончики
Я умею молотить, умею вымолачивать,
Я умею водку пить, карманы выворачивать.
Если хочешь замуж выйти, молодого мужа взять
Для начала научися, где лимончики достать.
Припев
Ой, лимончики, вы мои лимончики,
Ай, где растёте вы в моем саду?
Ой, лимончики, вы мои лимончики,
Ай, где растёте у Сони на балкончике?
На Костецкой Беня жил, Беня мать свою любил,
Если есть у Бени мать, значит есть куда послать.

LIMONCHIKI (Little Lemons) (music and lyrics traditional)

I can burgle flats, I can steal beyond all doubt.
I can drink vodka and turn pockets inside out.

If you want to get married, to find a fine young man,
First of all, you’ve got know where to get him lemons.

CHORUS
Oh, little lemons, you are my little lemons,
Ah, where do you grow in my garden?
Oh little lemons, you are my little lemons,
Ah, where do you grow on Sonya’s balcony?

Benya lived on Kostetskaya Street and how he loved his mother.
Benya gave his mother lemons, which made his mother pucker.
