      I'm new to the group and don't know how to send this
      to everyone, so i'm just seding to you in the hopes of
      you passing it on: i need help with the translation of
      the following -
      "totyi iz lyivaha boku dvoj toszuty Verusenuj noj
      molotcsuj gyivke a zs pravo ha boku chlopicz i gyivcsa
      to verusenaha szena gyite"
      thanks for any help
