Поле, поле, поле, я ж мала
Поле, поле, поле, так мала
Как пройти по полю из огня
Как пройти по полю, если ты одна?
А-а-а, ждать мне чьей-то ручечки, ручки?
А-а-а, а кто подаст мне ручку, девочки?
Испокон веков с ночи до утра
С ночи-ночи ждём мы корабля, ждём мы корабля
Очень-очень ждём мы корабля, ждём мы корабля, ждём мы корабля
А чё ждать? Встала и пошла

Хай-ха, хай-ха
Эй, эй
Every Russian woman needs to know (Ха, ха)
You're strong enough to bounce against the wall (Эй, эй)
Every Russian woman needs to know (Ха, ха)
You're strong enough to bounce against the wall (Эй, эй)

Шо там хорохорится? Ой, красавица
Ждешь своего юнца, ой, красавица
Тебе уж за 30, алло, где же дети?
Ты в целом красива, но вот похудеть бы
Надень подлиннее, надень покороче
Росла без отца, делай то, что не хочет
Ты точно не хочешь? (Не хочешь, а надо)
Послушайте, правда, мы с вами не стадо
Вороны, прошу отвалите-е-е

Теперь зарубите себе на носу
Я вас не виню, а себя я чертовски люблю
Борются, борются
Все по кругу борются, да не молятся
Сын без отца, ночь без отца
Но сломанной family не сломать меня, а

Хай-ха, хай-ха
Эй, эй
Every Russian woman needs to know (Ха, ха)
You're strong enough to bounce against the wall (Эй, эй)
Every Russian woman needs to know (Ха, ха)
You're strong enough (Эй, эй)

Эй, русский женщин, давай, голосуй за меня
Да, you're strong enough, you're strong enough
Don't be afraid (Don't be afraid)
Don't be afraid (Don't be afraid)
Don't be afraid (Don't be afraid)
Don't be afraid, don't be afraid

Теперь зарубите себе на носу
Я вас не виню, а себя я чертовски люблю
Борются, борются
Все по кругу борются, да не молятся
Сын без отца, ночь без отца
Но сломанной family не сломать меня, а
Хай-ха, хай-ха
Эй, эй
О-о-о​

I agree with @A-lister here 100%!

Vote for Russia, A-lister! xyaaay

I did vote for it...

Happy to see it manage top. 10, I obviously wanted more since it's my #1 this year but I didn't expect it to be much higher, interestingly though it did better with juries and worse with televoters than I expected (I think with the latter the bad running-order could have had a negative impact, but then again what were the Russian diaspora doing that normally vote like crazy or do they really dislike her that much?).

I'm a big fan of the peace ballads and pop-dance Russia sent, but.. the message of this song was awesome though. And the fact that she or her team didn't go nude is a very fine plus. This was indeed what Poland 2014 should've been.

I ncever actually thought of Russia ending up as one of my favourites, yet here they did. I want to say kudos to every russian televoter making her win the NF and blessing us with the goddess of a female ethno hip hop beat with an imporant message on cherry top. Thought the european televoters would've given her like a 100 points more, well 9th is still okay for me xup

Russian diaspora did vote for her. 10 points from Latvia.

There is no Russian diaspora in Slovenia, but Slovenia awarded big points from jury and even televote in both - in the semis as well as the finals.

The reality is that Russia enjoys very positive public image in Slovenia even if the entire world and West decries Putin and modern Russia. I did not like the Russian song this year, but I am still super happy that Slovenia voted for Russia to show our love for Mother Russia.

Yes, that's politics, minorities, etc. But since I love Russia and their culture and their music, I am super happy that we did give them points.

Next year, please Russia, bring again your top-notch pop singers. I don't care if they are in white. I just want some really good singer again in the game.

This song was a pure gem! Thanks Manizha and the entire team for representing my country with pride and energy that has never been seen on this stage before. I was proud af when the entire world heard russian language for three minutes with such a strong message, with cultural appropriation and I DO hope that some people realized that russia is much more than matryoshka doll and balalaika. Its huge and has a lot of nations in it

She sure was a force of nature! Easily right up there with the grannies as one of the most memorable performers! It's too bad she didn't place higher but top 10 was fantastic (for a mixed song that sounded like 3 pasted together :lol: ) and way above my expectations. Too bad Manizha couldn't win either the press or artistic award. She sure deserved one of them!

And a huge shoutout to those fantastic backing singers! They sounded louder and more powerful then any backing track used in the whole competition. So much out of just 4 people :cool:
