Text heard on Sample:
Aleko: I vsyo togdá ya zabïvál,
kogdá recám yeyó vnimál
i, kak bezúmnïy, celovál
yeyó carúyusciye óci,
kos cúdnïkh pryad', temnéye nóci,
ustá Zemfírï...A oná,
vsya négoy, strást'yu polná,
pril'núv ko mne, v glazá glyadéla...
I cto zh? I cto zh?

--------------------------------------

Aleko:  Then I would forget everything
when I heard her words
and, mad with love, would kiss
her bewitching eyes,
her wonderful locks, blacker than night,
and her lips...
And she, with voluptuous passion,
clung to me and looked into my eyes...
And now? And now?
