    Great and funny song! Is there any romanization available, for non-russian speakers like myself?

      I’m glad that you liked this song! But what do you mean by “romanization”?.. If you mean the English language then can’t you see the English Subtitles?…

      • Patrick says:

        He means “Latinization,” which is another word for “romanization,” deriving from the Romans. It basically means to translate the lyrics into latin letters; a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i,j,k,l,m,n,o,p,q,r,s,t,v,w,x,y,z,æ,ø,å etc. Because we don’t know the Cyrillic letters (Slavic), you know the; азъ, буки, вѣди, глаголь, добро etc. Translating it into latin letters will help us non-slavic language speakers sing and correctly pronounce the lyrics in the song. You might also know it as transliteration.
