Lyrics
"Примадонна" (russian version)
(Cyrillic alphabet)
Музыка: А. Пугачева, слова: А. Пугачева

Словно раненая птица
С опереньем золотым
На помост выйдешь ты
И вижу, вижу я тебя счастливой

Пой, для меня лишь пой, Примадонна
Пой раненой душой, Примадонна
Умирая каждый раз
Смейся в лицо судьбе, Примадонна
Не привыкать тебе, Примадонна
К роли страшной и простой
Быть звездой

И своим усталым взором,
Коронованным слезой
Глядишь ты в этот зал
И словно видишь сон, но сон растаял

Вот он, последний бой, Примадонна
Бой со своей судьбой, Примадонна
Смейся в лицо судьбе, Примадонна
Не привыкать тебе, Примадонна
К роли страшной и смешной
Быть всегда одной

Дай же силы, о небо,
Осушить эту чашу до дна
Там, где ты еще не был,
Ей уже наливали вина
Ей кричали: "браво"
За причудливый фарс
Поднимаю бокал
За счастливый финал
Браво, примадонна, браво!

"Primadonna" (russian version)

Music by Alla Pugacheva; Lyrics by Alla Pugacheva

Slovna ranyenaya ptitsa,
S aperyenem zalatim
Na pamost viydesh ti
I vizhu, vizhu ya tyebya schestlivay

Poy, dlya minya lish poy, Primadonna
Poy, ranyenay dushoy, Primadonna
Umiraya kazhdiy raz
Smyeysya v litso sudbye, Primadonna
Nye privikat tibe, Primadonna
K roli strashnoy i prastoy
Bit zvezdoy

I svaim ustalim vzoram,
Karanovanim slyezoy
Glydish ti v etat zal
I slovna vidish son, no son rastayal

Vot on, paslyedniy boy, Primadonna
Boy sa svayey sudboy, Primadonna
Smyeysya v litso sudbye, Primadonna
Nye privikat tibe, Primadonna
K roli strashnoy i smeshnoy
Bit vsigda adnoy

Day zhe sili, o nyeba,
Asushit etu chashu do dna
Tam, gde ti eshche nye bil,
Jey uzhe nalivali vina
Yey krichali: "bravo",
Za prichudliviy fars
Padnimayu bakal,
Za schistliviy final!
Bravo! Primadonna! Bravo!

"Primadonna" (english version)
Music by A.Pugacheva, english lyrics by ?

Like a bird with golden feathers,
Flying with your broken wings
I see you on the stage
So happy in your world, in your illusion

Sing just for me tonight, primadonna
Sing, make the darkness bright, primadonna
Play your part, though it's sad
Smile at your destiny, primadonna
Smile through your tears for me, primadonna
Pay the price of success
You're a star

Life is only a reflection
In the mirror of your mind
When the lights all go out
Your dreams will fade away, they're an illusion

Sing just for me tonight, primadonna
Sing, make the darkness bright, primadonna
Sing for the stars above, primadonna
Sing in the key of love, primadonna
Hide your tears and your scar
Show the world a star

Holy Heavens Above
You help you empty that bittersweet grail
Make the audience love you
And you swear that you never will fail
If they're shouting: "bravo"
For a song and a dance
I will drink to the chance
That you'll have a grande finale
Bravo, primadonna, bravo!

"Diva Prima Donna" (french version)
French lyrics by Michele Rivegauche

À l'Opéra, quand la diva
Joue un rôle d'amoureuse
Malheureuse ou heureuse
Elle a toujours ving ans, éternellement

Le maestro conduit, prima donna
L'orchestre qui te suit, prima donna
Comme on suit une femme
Et le public conquis, prima donna
Le public t'applaudit, prima donna
Et réclame cette femme
Qui l'enflamme

Mais dans la vie de la diva
l'homme qu'elle aime ne l'aime pas
Car il aime dans les choeurs
Une chanteuse de vinght ans, ça lui brise le coeur

Pauvre Paillasse en pleurs, prima donna
Ris donc de ta douleur! Prima donna
Chante ou crie si tu crois, prima donna
Chante en portant ta croix! Prima donna
La jalousie ça t'agrippe
Arrache-toi les tripe's

Chante comme tu n'as jamais
Jamais chanté en tant que chanteuse
Pour l'homme que tu aimais
Chante en femme blessée, allez chante!
Le public crie: "encore"!
Donne-lui tout de toi
Ta voix, tes larmes, ton corps
Fais lui l'amour! "encore"
Chante! Encore! Encore!
