[Translated from Russian:]
"Astronaut, cosmonaut, round them up, best we've got
Once they're out way too far, beam us shots of the stars

Return me back to you, return me back to you"

Astronaut, send us up
Once I'm out, I'll beam you shots
As long as you, will turn me back to you

Cosmonaut, best you got
Way too far, from the stars
Promise to, return me back to you

Bum bum bum bum bum ba-dum ba-bum bum bum bum bum
