"Watakushi...kodai no Roman ni zubrinsky"
"Aa...ana ga attara...horitai!"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"I'm very Zvolinskied[1] by the ancient tales!
Ahh, if there's a hole to be dug, I want to dig it!"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Ladies and Gentlemen! Saa honjitsu okikase suru no wa watakushi no karei naru hansei,
mazushii oitachi de maku o akeru namida, namida no monogatari de gozaimaasu"
"Harasho! Harasho! Harikitte mairimashou!
Saa ude o kuminagara ashi no suji o nobasu undou!"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Come, ladies and gentlemen! What you have the honor of hearing today is the story of my brilliant youth!
We shall open the curtain on the sad, sad story of my impoverished upbringing!"
Khorosho! Khorosho![2] Don't just stand there!
Come, link your arms and stretch out the muscles of your legs!"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Akaku yurameku pechka  uchi ni mo atta no ni

Otoutotachi wa itsumo  chokomaka ugoiteta
Hara wa heru kedo  jitto shitetara  koocchimau kara

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Though my house had a hearth that flickered red
Alas, we had no firewood
My brothers always moved quickly
Because though their bellies ached with hunger, if they stood still too long they'd freeze

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Unmei no okurimono  fukou o tsumeta matryoshka
Akete mo  akete mo  kanashimi bakari

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The gifts of fate are like a matryoshka of ill luck
You open one doll after another, but find only sadness

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Harasho! Harasho! Borscht ni wa kuro kusho!
Saa, niban wa masu masu namida cho cho girenski"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Khorosho! Khorosho! Borscht is made with black pepper!
Now then, part two is even more heartbreakinskiy!"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Shiroku kirameku borga  kaze o kirisaite
Hashire troika  uchi wa tooi ka  sora kakero

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The glittering white Volga cut through the wind
Oh, racing troika[3], are you far from home? Fly through the sky!

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Imoutotachi mo itsumo  hara o sukaseteta
"???"
"An-chan, ohara tsuita yo..."
"Ganbare-!!"
"Ite-"
Ganbare katyusha  gin no ochuusha  kitto yoku naru sa

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
My sisters' bellies were always empty too
 
("Big brother, I'm hungry!"
"Hold on!"
"It hurts!")
Oh, youngest sister [Katyusha], keep holding on--this silver injection will surely make you well

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Jinsei wa okurimono  fujouri tsumeta matryoshka
Akete mo  akete mo  kurushimi bakari

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Life is a gift like a matryoshka of absurdity
You open one doll after another, but find only suffering

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Saa minna-sama, otemoto ni HANKECHI nado goyoui kudasaimase.
Koko made wa honno jojou ni sugimasen. Hontou ni hisan na no wa koko kara de gozaimasu"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Now, everybody, make sure you have your handkerchiefs close at hand.
All this has only been the prologue--the true tragedy begins here!"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Fuseru shoujo no chiryouhi de  mazushii kakei wa moeagari
Papa wa tooku no tankou de  iwa ga kuzurete shitajiki ni
Nobori wa kenshiki sakamichi mo  korogari ochiru wa masa ni setsuna

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The sickly girl's medical bills quickly burned through my family's meager finances
And then my papa was killed in a cave-in in a distant coal mine
Though the path may be steep to climb, tumbling down it takes only a moment

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Shiseru shoujo no souretsu ni  aishita futari no kage wa naku
Mama mo shoufu no kakkou de  muri ga tagatte tabidateri
Donna ni kenshiki sakamichi mo  korogari ochireba masa ni setsuna

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The dead girl's funeral was missing the shadows of two people who had loved her
My mother, overworked and looking like a harlot, had set off on a journey
However steep the path may be, tumbling down it takes only a moment

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Katyusha..."
"Papa..."
"Hora, nakanai no"
"Mama..."
"Katyusha ni owakareshimashou ne"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Katyusha..."
"Papa..."
"Now, now, don't cry..."
"Mama..."
"Let's say goodbye to Katyusha, all right?"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Anata, a-na-ta!"
"Oo, Eirene!! Itooshi no waga tsuma yo... watashi, kimi no miryoku ni zuborinsky!"
"Nani baka na koto osshatterun desuka, sagyou no hou wa dou desu no?"
"Junchou, kaichou, zekkouchou! 
Ima wa choudo kyuukei shiteita tokoro desu. 
Aa, kimitachi wa mou ii desu yo.
Hai, arigatou, spasiba. spasiba."
"Tsurenai wa ne"
"Mou owari? Tsumannai"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Dear! Dear!"
"Oh, Eirene! My beloved wife! I am Zvolinskied by your charms!"
"What nonsense are you going on about? How's business?"
"Terrific! Fantastic! Phenomenal!
I was just taking a little break.
All right, you're done now.
Yes, thank you. Spasibo, spasibo."
"That's cold!"
"It's already over? How disappointing."
"My fist..."
"All right, ladies and gentlemen!"
"Let's leave this to Zvolin and go home."
"That's it! Let's go."
"Wait, Katia!"
"Wait! My lady!"
"Don't just stand there, let's get back to work!
Khorosho!"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Hotte mo hotte mo suna bakari  dore dake hotte mo myaku ga nai
Haikin yarou no mousou sa  muda na doryoku to hito wa iu
Soredemo  anata wa akiramenai wa

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I dig and dig, but find only sand--however much I dig, I can't find a vein
Others say it's just the delusion of a money-grubbing bastard, a waste of effort
But you won't give up, will you, dear?

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Hotte wa hotte wa sunabokori  dore dake hotte mo kiri ga nai
Narikin yarou no douraku sa  baka na otoko to hito wa warau
Soredemo  watashi wa tsuite yuku wa

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Digging and digging just raises a cloud of sand--however much I dig, there's no end
Scholars laugh that it's just the hobby of a noveau-riche bastard, an idiotic man
But even so, I'll reach it

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
(Mabayuku) Kagayaku ougon ya (Sekaijuu ni) todoroku meisei ga
(Anata wa ) Hoshii wake ja nai (Moeru you na) Yume ga mitai dake
Moira ga nozomu no wa  kigeki ka  higeki ka
Ima mou ichido [Shinwa] o  rekishi no butai ni tatasetai...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
(You'll set) It's not that I want (The dazzling) Glittering gold or
(World) Great renown (On fire) I just want to have a dream
Does Moira desire a comedy or a tragedy?
Now, once again, I want to let the legend stand on history's stage...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Mazushii ikka wa hanare banare  watashi wa shouka e decchiboukou
Busaiku na kao dato ijimerareta kedo  dare yori mo hisshi ni hataraita
Watashi (Anata) o sasaeta no wa kazoku no sonzai to  haha no katami to natta issatsu no hon

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I left my poor family and was apprenticed to a merchant
I was mocked for my ugly face, but I worked harder than anyone
What kept me (you) going was the existence of my (your) family and a book of poetry that was a memento of my (your) mother

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
--"Unmei ga zankoku da  saredo kanojo o osoreru na
Moira ga tatakawanu mono ni hohoemu koto nado  keshitenai no dakara"--

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Fate is cruel, but do not fear her
Because Moira surely will not smile on those who do not fight"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Jinsei wa okurimono  fujouri tsumeta matryoshka
Soredemo watashi (Anata) wa horu darou (Deshou) soko ni ana ga aru kagiri...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Life is a gift like a matryoshka of absurdity
Even so, as long as there's a hole to be dug, I suppose I'll continue to dig (you'll continue to dig, won't you?)

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Uooo!"
"Anata...?"
"Eirene, Eirene!"
"Nandesu no?"
"Harasho!"
"Ee?"
"Harasho!"
"Maa..."
"Harashoooo!!!!"
"Subarashii wa...!"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Whoa!"
"Dear?"
"Eirene, Eirene!"
"What is it?"
"Khorosho!"
"Eh?"
"Khorosho!"
"Ah..."
"Khoroshooooo!"
"That's wonderful!"

[1] Zvolinskiy seems to like to use his own name in place of a verb. It doesn't actually mean anything in and of itself.
[2] Russian for "Wonderful!"
[3] A carriage pulled by three horses, historically popular in Russia. The mention of the troika flying may be a reference to a famous quote by Nikolai Gogol using a similar metaphor--or it may just be a coincidence.
