Where seagulls wing, and waves are shaggy, That's where you find men.

Where oars need swinging - Tell mel, adults, which lads will be there?

to the boats, to the boats, plowing the waves with our paddle. persistent,

Waves of green Away, sleepy jellyfish at the bottom! A wave of foam,

Forward flying Leninists Forward sea-scouts

Young scouts, today we celebrate a small victory.

Out of broken boats cast ashore by the waves

The building crew themselves will sail to Adalara island.

Come here, there will be a reading of "Gulliver"!

Boys, keep quiet.

My father owned a small estate in Nottinghamshire. I was the third of his sons.

In my youth I studied medicine, after that I sailed for some years as a ship surgeon.

One day I sailed on 'Antelope' to South Ocean.

It was stormy weather, big waves washed over deck and a deafening wind blew in the sails.

Then I noticed a ship with black sails. It were pirates.

Their fast brig rammed into the 'Antelope', the impact was so heavy that I fell overboard on the deck of the pirate-ship.

A horrible crash was heard and the poor 'Antelope'went down with all its crew.

"By thousand devils!" the pirates shouted "All sorts of old boats are slouching around!"

Meanwhile it stormed...


Everybody to their places!

Get out, lazybones! To work!

Hey, the hyena, the masts, the formula-bom-topgallant-yard

Oh, you, mariners!

Who are you?

I am doctor Petya Gulliver. seven berthing in your throat!

Who prepares all for the Navy: Pasta, borshch and dumplings Cereal, pancakes, juice, He calls the galley kitchen?

Don't hamper working!

I will teach you a lesson, lazybones!

Hey, old jackal, don't dare to touch that kid! I'll teach you...

Take that! Bastard!

Doctor Gulliver, i'm Vanya. Let's shake hands!

Hands up, bandits! Or you will have a bomb for breakfast.

Thrown down your weapons!


Save my suitcase, my homework russian is in it!

Doctor, doctor, help...

Where do you...wait!

To his highness, chief of the police. REPORT.

but don't be afraid of our talking, we're a very placable folk.

Placable folk?

I don't see any folk, only soldiers. Soldiers?

Soldiers for making the nature beautiful. Soldiers for making the folk scared.

Our folk is content with life, it always sings and doesn't expect tears.
