    I tried to translate song "yak istrebitel". I'm not translator and sorry for my english but it can give u meaning of this song:
    -------------------------------------------
    YAK ISTREBITEL

    I am ¿Yak¿, the Fighter. My engine rings,
    The sky is my home,
    And man who sits in me
    Thinks that he is fighter.

    In this combat I shot down ¿Junkers¿ -
    I made with him all I wanted.
    And man who sits in me
    Has bothered me much.

    I got through holes in last combat,
    Mechanic repaired me.
    And man who sits in me
    Forces me to go into stall.

    A bomb from bomber brings
    Death for aerodrome.
    But it seems that stabilizer sings:
    ¿Peace for your home¿.

    Now ¿Messerschmitt¿ goes to my back,
    I will go away, I¿m tired because of wounds.
    But I see that man who sits in me has decided
    To collide .{here was russian word ¿taran¿, it was when flyer intentionally led plane on enemy)

    What is he doing? Now it is exploding!!!
    But I will not fire on sand,
    I go out from diving
    Contrary to all interdictions and speeds.

    I am commander and on my back¿
    ****! Where is my wingman?
    He has smoked, has noded and
    Has sung:¿Peace for your home!¿

    And man who sits in my head
    Now alone and he is in hard situation.
    He has confused me
    And started to dive after loop.

    He is pulling on and overloads became twice larger.
    Heh, what the flyer-ace!
    But I obey again
    And this is in the last time!

    I swear that I will obedient anymore,
    It¿s better to lay on the ground.
    Does he hear how my pulse rages?!!!
    Gasoline,my blood, is on zero mark!

    The patience of the machine has a limit,
    And it¿s its time.
    And suddenly man who sat in me
    Sticked with his face into glass.

    He is killed! At last I fly free and
    Burn my last forces.
    But what is it? I¿m diving
    And can¿t fly up!!!

    It¿s annoyingly that I did not many things,
    But let another one has good luck.
    It has turned out so I sung too:
    ¿Peace for your home¿!!!

    Thanks ReDeeIVIeR, I found this text here about the Yak song/movie:

    http://rkkaww2.armchairgeneral.com/M...terww2.htm#Yak

    €œI am a Yak-fighter plane€

    Vladimir Vysotskii is a legendary Soviet singer of 70th. He was very popular in USSR, he was a real
    people favourite. When he died in 1980 many thousands of the ordinary Soviet people went to
    attend a funeral.

    All the texts of Vysotskii€s songs are written by himself.

    This of his songs is about a fighter plane. Vysotskii could to show the character and the stress
    of an aerial combat.

    ************************************************** ******************************************

    €œI am a Yak-fighter plane€

    (Translated by Andrey)

    I am a Yak-fighter plane, my engine is ringing,
    The sky is my home!
    But the guy who sits inside of me
    Supposes that he is a fighter.

    I shot down a €œJunkers€ [1] in this combat,
    I did with him everything what I wanted.
    But the guy who sits inside of me
    Bored me pretty!

    I was shot through in the last combat,
    And a mechanic sewed over the tear
    But the guy who sits inside of me
    Again forces me to spin

    A bomb from a bomber carries
    A death to an airfield,
    But it looks like a stabilizer is singing:
    €œP-e-a-c-e [2] to your home€[3]

    Here a €œMessershmitt€ [4] approaches to me from the rear,
    And I want to go away as I am tired from wounds!
    But I see that the guy who sits inside of me
    Decided to make a ram attack!

    What he is doing! €" Here an explosion will be! €"
    But it is not my turn to burn on a sand -
    Exceeding all the prohibitions and speed limits,
    I came out from the diving!

    I am a leading plane and behind of me - the devil take it! €"
    Where is he, my second wingman?
    Oh, here he is, he began to smoke and to sing:
    €œP-e-a-c-e to your home€

    And the guy who sits inside of my skull
    Stayed alone and got into a mess!
    But he misled me and began to dive
    Right after the coming out from the €œdeath loop€[5] !

    He pulls the control column toward himself and overloads are twice than usual ones -
    Eh, how can he suppose that he is a pilot-ace!
    But I must to obey again
    And it is the last time when I do it!

    I shall be obedient no more, I swear in it, €"
    It is better to lie on a land!
    Isn€t he hearing how my pulse is being furious €"
    The indicator of gasoline, of my blood shows a zero!

    There is the limit of the patience of a machine
    And my patience gave way!
    But suddenly the guy who sits inside of me
    Poked himself into the frontal glass by his face!

    He is killed. Oh! At last! I am flying without luggage,
    I am spending my last forces!
    But what is happening? What is it? €" I came into a deep diving
    And I in no way can come out from this diving!

    It is a pity that I had time to do myself only few things
    But let another will be luckier!
    It turned out that I also singed in the end:
    €œP-e-a-c-e to your home€

    €œPeace to your home€


    Remarks of Andrey:
    [1] - €œJunkers€ - the Russian nickname of German Ju87 and Ju88 bombers
    [2] €" the Russian €œmir€ equals to the English €œpeace€. Vysotskii sings €œM-i-i-i-r€ and it sounds
    like the sound of an engine which is working with the extreme efforts.
    [3] - €œPeace to your home€ is the translation of the Eastern welcome €œSaliam aleikum€, the
    Muslims who lived in USSR spoke this phrase when they met one to another. Vysotskii used
    the Russian translation of this phrase and it sounds very well, I myself suppose that it
    emphasizes that the Soviet pilots were peaceful guys who want to live in a peace but must to fight.
    [4] - €œMessershmitt€ €" the Russian nickname of a German Bf109 fighter
    [5] - €œdeath loop€ €" a figure of the aerobatics

    ************************************************** ******************************************

    The Russian version (translit):

    "Ia - Yak-istrebitel'"

    Ia - Iak-istrebitel', motor moi zvenit,
    Nebo €" moia obitel'!
    No tot, kotoryi vo mne sidit,
    Schitaet, chto on istrebitel'.

    V etom boiu mnoiu "iunkers" sbit,
    Ia sdelal s nim, chto khotel.
    A tot, kotoryi vo mne sidit,
    Izriadno mne nadoel!

    Ia v proshlom boiu navylet pro****,
    Menia mekhanik zashtopal.
    A tot, kotoryi vo mne sidit,
    Opiat' zastavliaet v shtopor.

    Iz bombardirovshchika bomba nesiot
    Smer' aerodromu,
    A kazhetsia, stabilizator poiot:
    - Mi-i-ir Vashemu domu.

    Vot szadi zakhodit ko mne "messer****t" -
    Uidu €" ia ustal ot ran!
    No tot, kotoryi vo mne sidit,
    Ia vizhu, reshil na taran!

    Chto delaet on - vot seichas budet vzryv!
    No mne ne goret' na peske -
    Zaprety i skorosti vse perekryv,
    Ia vykhozhu iz pike.

    Ia glavnyi, a szadi, nu chtob ia sgorel,
    Gde zhe on, moi vedomyi?
    Vot on zadymilsia, kivnul i zapel:
    - Mi-i-ir Vashemu domu.

    I tot, kotoryi v moem cherepke,
    Ostalsia odin i vlip!
    Menia v zabluzhdenie on vviol -
    I v pike - priamo iz miortvoi petli!

    On rviot na sebia i nagruzki vdvoine -
    Ekh, tozhe mne, liotchik-as!
    No snova prikhoditsia slushat'sia mne
    I eto v poslednii raz!

    Ia bol'she ne budu pokornym, klianus', -
    Uzh luchshe lezhat' na zemle!
    Nu chto zh on, ne sly****, kak besitsia pul's -
    Benzin, moia krov', na nule!

    Terpeniiu mashiny byvaet predel,
    I vremia ego isteklo!
    I tot, kotoryi vo mne sidel,
    Vdrug tknulsia litsom v steklo!

    Ubit, nakonets-to, lechu nalegke -
    Poslednie sily zhgu!
    No chto eto, chto - ia v glubokom pike
    I vyiti nikak ne mogu!

    Dosadno, chto sam ia nemnogo uspel,
    No pust' poveziot drugomu!
    Vykhodit, i ia naposledok spel:
    - Mi-i-ir Vashemu domu.

    - Mir Vashemu domu.
