Cucumber always held in high esteem,
A salty - the double.
Luchshe zakus not find
In the restaurant and on the stump.

What's hamburger overseas,
For teeth that are not crunches.
Cucumber salty slippery,
It stimulates appetite.

Do not understand the Americans,
With so rushing them to the width?
Lose weight they have shansy-
Go to our virgin.

Thickets everywhere buryantsem
The gardens and fields.
Surrender to the Americans,
Let nothing earth.

Cucumbers let nasazhayut,
Saline and eating vprisest,
Finally, they learn
What is cucumber!
