Gogol Bordello – Not A Crime lyrics

[Russian]: -I've managed to get the letter, Nikolay Ivanovich.
-And if it is forbidden again?
-Absolutely forbidden! Belinsky* to Gogol! Ah, Nikolay Ivanovich, it's such a letter!


Drop the charges!

[Russian]:Gimme the forbidden!

The fire and the power, yuh?!

[Ukrainian]

(In the old time it was not a crime, drop the charges,
Don't you realise the sun rises?)

(Drop the charges, man! Drop the charges!)

(Right you are! And this time, let the people know...)

In the old time, in the old time,
In the old time it was not a crime!
(What are you talking about?)
In the old time, in the old time,
In the old time it was not a crime!

Not a crime!
(It's all nonsensical!)
Not a crime!

In the old time, in the old time,
In the old time it was not a crime!
In the old time, in the old time,
In the old time it was not a crime!

(*coughs*)
Not a crime!
Drop the charges!
Not a crime!
Not a crime!
Not a crime!

Reality!

[Russian]: Oh, gimme the forbidden! Aphorism*
Spices, creation, realisation, naturalisation,
What are you talking about? It's all about time 'cos today you go to nature.

Not a crime!
In the old time, in the old time,
In the old time it was not a crime!
In the old time, in the old time,
In the old time it was not a crime!

(Not a crime, not a crime!)
Not a crime!
[Russian]: Oh, gimme the forbidden!
Not a crime!
Not a crime!
Drop the charges, man!
Not a crime!
Drop the charges!

[Russian] [I] have been sitting dangling my legs, [I] didn't want to work
Not a crime!
[Russian] [I] have been sitting dangling my legs, [I] didn't want to work
Not a crime!
(It's not a crime, it's legal - perfectly natural).
