Russia I Miss You By George Baring I think back to my life in Moscow, In my mind I see sparkling snow. I can smell the cold air, And the frost in my hair, And it all feels like so long ago. I think back to our wooden Dacha*, And my breakfast of delicious Plyshka*. I can smell the fumes of the old Zhiguli*. Oh, Russia I miss you truly, truly. But now, I love South Africa. * Dacha - Wooden house in the countryside * Plyushka - Delicious doughy bread covered in sugar * Zhiguli - small Russian car (the police often drove them)
