    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because belongs in a Russian language site, and the "belongs in another site in the SE network" option doesn't offer that

  • yeah, these kind of questions are in a bit of a cross-over zone. Figuring out words/lyrics is what music fans do, but then again, the language aspect fits with a language forum too, cos everyone likes music.
