Lyrics

Emigrant Song

Written By: Igor Khramov

When I came to this land the preporation started
To look for something knowing nothing to begin
I went to look for work each time I was refused
It's happened million times before I'm still amused

I tried to cook, I tied to bake, I tried to sell
But I still can not pay the bill Pacific Bell
Oh mama mama tell me when it's gonna end
Whe I would finely get one hundred million grand

Baby Girl

Written By: Igor Khramov

Be done soon, please.
Time is running out..

Epic song

Written By: Igor Khramov

Ya hoi ne po moryu

In The Garden

Written By: Igor Khramov

Gulyali my vo sadochke, gulyali my vo sadochke
Vo sirenevykh platochkah gulyali my vo sadochke

This song is in Russian.
If this gets close to winning situation, I will translate it right away..
The song is about women, about their behavior, characters, moods, kicking out their husbands of the house, not letting them do things they would normally woona do..
very homurous song..
