The Lyrics

Im on record as saying that the Epstein suicide story was so transparently ludicrous and full of holes that even the Volga Boatmen wouldnt buy it. And lo and behold, I was right! Check out what this crew of Serf cut ups have to say
Oan byl OO-beet; oan byl OO-beet
Bylo OO-biytctvo, nye oobyval syebya
Oan zadooshen, oan zadooshen
Byl Arkanskiy smyert, Oan nye veesyet syebya

(He was murdered, he was murdered
It was murder, he did not kill himself
He was strangled, he was strangled
It was Arkancide, he did not hang himself)

(Sometime in the late nineties, my mother and her bestie, Geri, both having been recently widowed, took a Volga river cruise. So all of their children called them the Volga Boatgirls when they returned (True fact, I swear) ..... And apparently those serf crews that was tasked to pulling their cruise ship serenaded them with this*)

Ay zhenshin, ay zhenshin
Yesho gorodok, yesho Potempkingrad
Ay zhenshin, ay zhenshin
Yesho vodka, yasho chasa borsch

Hey ladies, hey ladies
One more townlet, one more Potempkin burg*
Hey ladies, hey ladies
One more vodka, one more cup of borsht

And here it is in the Cyrillic alphabet

Он был убит, он был убит
Было убийство, не убивал себя
Был задушен, был задушен
Было Арканский смерт, он не висеть себя

Єй Жєншин, єй Женшин
Ещё городок, ещё Потемскийград
Єй Женщин, Єй Женщин
Ещё водка, ещё чаша борш

*Not even close to the truth, I swear ... *My way of saying tourist trap. A Potempkin village is a Russian village with a fake facade of being well off when viewed from the Volga that masked the reality of abject poverty. This was a stunt that was pulled off by a Grigoriy Potempkin in order to convince Tsarina Catherine the Great that everything was hunky bory in her realm
