Rusalki: Slavonic and Russian water nymphs

They say that you are spirits of drowned girls.
They say that you lure unsuspecting
passers-by into the water with your song.

I don't care what they say.
You are beautiful and I want to be with you.

They say that during the summer,
when the rivers have been warmed by the sun,
you come out to live in the cool forests.

Maybe I should wait for summer
just to be on the safe side.
