Black Raven
One of Russia's most famous anti-war songs. Since there is no Englsih version I am aware of I have put a translation of the lyrics below.

Raven black, why are you wheeling,
Over my head circling low?
Ever will your prey elude you.
Raven black, I am not yours!

Why do you spread wide your talons,
Over my head circling low?
Or do you sense prey beneath you?
Raven black, I am not yours!

Fly you now, off to my homeland,
And say to my mother dear,
Say to her, my darling mother,
That for Fatherland I fell.

Take my shawl, now stained with red blood,
To my darling, dearly loved.
Say to her that she is free now:
To another I am wed.

A smoldering arrow bound her to me,
Upon the fated battlefield.
Death, I see, is coming for me.
Raven black, I am now yours!
