Description:
Inscription:

From the sea, from the mountains/ Wrangel the slaughterer/ rabidly
Proletarians of the world, unite!

Hey, army man, be on the alert!/ Don't give up your land/ to noblemen.

Arm ready to strike/ the red army soldier shifted under his side/ stealthily
Look here, o people, on a bayonet/ instead of Wrangel - his monstrous/ head
And under his felt coat (special coat worn in the Caucasus) was hidden/ a dark secret: bandits/ demons
Oh how many of them are there, their fat faces/ Millerand and George and Foch/ awaiting death
For now we are resting/ but later we'll shove them/ into the sea
The black cloud will lift/ with the people's/ tribulation

Пролетарии всех стран, соединфйтесь!

Из-за моря, из-за гор/ Вылез Врангель живодер/ Яро
Эй, армеец не дремли/ Не давай своей земли/ Барам.

Развeрнулась рука,/Двинул красный под бока/ Ловко
На штыне-от глянь, народ /Вместо Врангеля - урод/Головка
А под буркою сокрыты/ Тайна черная, бандты/ Черти
Эх их сколько жирных рож./ Мильеран и Джордж и Фош./ Ждут смерти
Мы покуда отдохнем./ А потом и их слихнем/ В море
Туча черная уйдет/ И народное пройдет/ Горе
