Music : Sweet Home Novorossiya, Russell “Texas” Bentley

from Kharkov to Odessa, this is Novorossiya

I swam across the Kalmius River,
I climbed on up a terrikon (spoil tip),
Beneath the earth there – toiled the miners,
As the sun shone down on my new home.

Добрый дом – Новороссия, (Sweet home, Novorossiya,)
Donetsk and Lugansk together,
Makeyevka, Yasinovata, oh yeah!
From Kharkov to Odessa – this is Novorossiya!

Donetsk is a real cool city,
And you know, it’s my new home.
My brothers here – they’re cool and heavy,
And we’re all loved by the finest girls, oh yeah!

Добрый дом – Новороссия, (Sweet home, Novorossiya,)
Donetsk, Lugansk… Slavyansk!
Gorlovka, Saur-Mogila,
From Kharkov to Odessa – this is our motherland!

Will we get some work out at the airport,
At the Fishhook and the Convent too.
The bombs fell down ’round my ears,
And how many brothers now cannot hear.


And to my bros who cannot hear me,
God welcomes you to your new heavenly home.
My blood is falling down on this ground,
Under which many Nazis sleep.

This is our land – Novorossiya!
Donetsk, Lugansk, Ilovaisk,
Spartak, Debaltsevo,
From Kharkov to Odessa – this is Novorossiya!

Some day we’ll clean up Dnipropetrovsk,
And we might just go on to Kiev.
The Novorossiyan Army – has got the power,
Because Donbass is full of bears.

Добрый дом – Новороссия! (Sweet home, Novorossiya!)
Donetsk, Lugansk, Kramatorsk,
Ukrainsk and Mariupol.
From Kharkov to Odessa – this is Novorossiya!


If you come to Novorossiya,
To our friends we serve the best green tea.
But if you come here to fight with weapons –
Well then your ass is history!

‘Cause this is our land – Novorossiya!
Donetsk and Lugansk together,
Makeyevka, Yasinovata.
From Kharkov to Odessa – this is Novorossiya!
