Basic Arabic. For Russians only :)

I went by the link provided at one Russian discussion boards.

My fellow Russians, you are welcome to listen ;)

Men are like Bluetooth: he is connected to you when you are nearby, but searches for other devices when you are away.
Women are like Wi-Fi: she sees all available devices, but connects to the strongest one.

Belle, the video is really funny... but it's more than 2 years old!

BTW, I was told that "Blya adi" in Arabic means "my country", and the song in reality is a patriotic hymn  :innocent:
Leaving Russia is not an emigration, rather an evacuation.

Yeah, I have read that this is from some Aravidenie, akin to our Eurovidenie, and this is indeed about the country, how beautiful it is.

Hearing an emotional feedback from the audience, my first thought was that the spectators must be mainly Russian speaking  ;D

Hm... Isn't there a logo of Izraeli TV-company in the corner? (Or maybe the same video has been broadcasted by few channels... and I have seen a different recording than the one you've posted a link to...)

here is what it should actually mean:

(1/4)
Родина, Родина, Родина моя!
Родина, твой климат мягок.
Как ты прекрасна, Родина моя!
На твоих холмах играют звёзды
И тебя воспевает пастух
Родина, Родина, Родина моя!
Родина, Родина, Родина моя

(2/4)
И равных тебе по красоте нет,
И наделил Он (=Господь) тебя своей благодатью
И равных тебе по красоте нет,
И наделил Он (=Господь) тебя своей благодатью
Выращиваем мы фиги
на горах и в долинах.

(3/4)
Хорошая погода радует (нас)
А блестящая луна, замечтавшись, висит в небе
Хорошая погода радует (нас)
А блестящая луна, замечтавшись, висит в небе
Певец поет свои песни
А вокруг него богатства.

(4/4)
Как не любить мне Родину?
Она самая прекрасная!
Как не любить мне Родину?
Она самая прекрасная!
Исходил весь мир я вдоль и поперек,
Но прекрасней своей Родины не видел!

The sign on top left corner may be Israeli TV..If it is, I figure how Israelis, where a big part is Russian speaking, were laughing their a$$es off  :THUB:

The thing is that the song is very sticky..I am singing it all Saturday long :) :)

Just don't show it to your colleagues in the office on Monday, please - I remember our office being completely paralysed for half a day when someone found this video about a year ago  :ROFL:

Olga, I won't  :) our office computers do not allow showing movies either.
