СВЕТИТ МЕСЯЦ Светит месяц, светит ясный, Светит белая заря, Осветила путь-дорожку Мне до Сашина двора. Я пошёл бы к Саше в гости, Да не знаю, где живёт. Попросил бы друга Петьку,- Боюсь Сашу отобьёт. Подхожу я под окошко, А у Саши нет огня. "Стыдно, стыдно тебе, Саша, Рано так ложиться спать!" "Стыдно, стыдно тебе, Саша, Рано так ложиться спать!" - "А тебе, мой друг, стыднее До полуночи гулять!" "А тебе, мой друг, стыднее До полуночи гулять! Не пора ль тебе жениться, Сашу в жёны себе взять?" "Не пора ль тебе жениться, Сашу в жёны себе взять? Сашу в жёны себе взять? Да закон-правду соблюдать?"

Danila Cooper - dance of the Russian Nobility
"Daniel Cooper" (also sometimes spelled as "Danila Kuper" or "Daniel Kupor") is the dance of the Russian Nobility during Napoleonic wars (in Russian version, "Danilo Kupor") was an actual dance - to be more precise, contradance, an old English dance characterized by quick and easy movements. F.F. Wiegel in his "Memoirs" (part 1, M., 1864, p. 62, first published in "Russky Vestnik", 1856) wrote that "One of these contradances was named a Danilo Kupor, probably after its composer, a certain Englishman Cooper".
