The Song of the Soviet Army (Russian: Песня о Советской Армии, Pesnya o Sovetskoj Armii) or Invincible and Legendary (Несокрушимая и легендарная) was a famous World War II song written and performed at the war's end. Its performance was done by numerous artists, including the Alexandrov Ensemble. The original 1945 is highly triumphal with its brass fanfares and ecstatic chords extended upward with the aid of trumpets, as part of the V-E Day celebrations. That arrangement by A. Alexandrov is very much in the tradition of final choruses in 19th-century Italian grand opera, and shows how he originally envisaged this composition. There are many versions of the song.

This song also serves as the official song of the Russian Armed Forces today.

Original lyrics

Над страною шумят как знамена Двадцать семь героических лет.
Солнцем славных боёв озарённым Весь твой путь в наших песнях воспет.

Припев:

Несокрушимая и легендарная, В боях познавшая радость побед -
Тебе любимая, родная армия Шлет наша Родина песню - привет.

Родилась ты под знаменем алым В восемнадцатом грозном году.
Всех врагов ты всегда сокрушала, Победишь и фашистов орду.

Припев.

Ленинград мы в боях отстояли, Отстояли родной Сталинград.
Нас ведет в наступление Сталин, Наши танки фашистов громят!

Припев.

Победим, наша сила несметна, Гений Сталина в бой нас ведет.
Наша армия в битвах бессмертна, Как бессмертен Советский Народ.

Припев:

Несокрушимая и легендарная, В боях познавшая радость побед - Тебе любимая, родная армия Шлет наша Родина песню - привет.


English Translation:

Noise over the country as the banners of the heroic Twenty-seven years. Sun glorious battles illumined All your way into our songs sung.

Chorus: Invincible and Legendary, The battle has known the joy of victory - You favorite native Army Sends our homeland song - Hi.

Born on you under the banner of scarlet in the eighteenth terrible year. All the enemies you always lamented victory and Nazi horde.

Chorus.

Leningrad we defended in battle, to defend the native Stalingrad. We are leading the offensive, Stalin, the Nazis Our tanks smash!

Chorus.

Defeat, our strength untold, The genius of Stalin in the fight leads us. Our army in the battles immortal, immortal Like the Soviet people.

Chorus: Invincible and Legendary, The battle has known the joy of victory - you love, dear Army Sends our homeland song - Hi.
