Can I be annoying and ask for a favor? Can anyone translate these lyrics? I managed to figure out verse 1 but the other two, I can't. I realize I could just use google translate but I can't find this version of the song anywhere so no text to paste into google translate.

I think verse 1 roughly translates to this:

I would have to forget you
I would have to forget you
But today everything reminds me
Of one thing only
Leningrad blockade
Leningrad blockade
And pounding relentlessly
Leningrad metronome

?

You got the first verse right.
The following goes:

И встает пред нами снова,
И встает пред нами снова
в XXX своем наряде зимний город над Невой (I can't get XXX word, It sounds like "ременной" but doesn't make sence)
Здесь в сражении суровом,
Здесь в сражении суровом
Мы узнали цену хлеба, цены дружбы фронтовой

Тебя забыть бы надо

Здесь нас бомбами глушили,
Здесь нас голодом душили,
Только мы с тобой, мой город,
Были всё-таки сильней.
Нет, мы их не позабыли,
Нет, мы их не позабыли -
Девятьсот ночей блокадных,
Девятьсот блокадных дней.

Тишина стоит такая, тишина стоит такая
Дремлет Нарвская застава, спит под снегом летний сад
Метроном не умолкает, метроном не умолкает,
Будто все сердца погибших и сегодня в нем стучат


And (it's) rising in front of us,
And (it's) rising in front of us,
In it's xxx dress, winter city over Neva
Here, in severe fight,
Here, in sever fight
We found out the bread price, the battlefield friendship price

(I) Should forget you

(They) had been deafening us with the bombs here
(They) had been choking us with the hunger here
But you my city and I
We were stronger anyway,
No, we didn't forget it
No, we didn't forget it
900 nights of siege,
900 days of siege.

The silence is such, she silence is such,
Narvskaya gate is sleeping, summer garden is sleeping under the snow
Metronome doesn't subside, metronome doesn't subside.
(It's) Like all the hearts of the ones who died knock inside it even today.

Why do you need these lyrics? Or you just like the song?

Thanks so so much! Sorry I didn't reply in ages!

I just like the song. I also wanted to quote it in a novel I was writing at the time, but changed my mind, and figured I didn't need all the verses.
