G'day! I need some help. Could someone write the following Lyrics in the russian alphabet?
It's some lyrics from the opera prince igor, which I need for a important college work. Thx in advance

Uletai na krilliyakh vetra
ti v krai rodnoi, rodnoya pesnaya nasha
tuda, gde mi tebya svobodno peli,
gde bilo tak privolno nam s toboyu.
Tam, pod znoinim nebom,
negoi vozdukh polon;
tam, pod govor morya,
dremlyut gori v oblakakh.

Tam tak yarko solntse svetit,
Tam tak yarko...
rodine gori svetom ozaryaya;
vdolniakh pishno rozi rastsvetayut,
tam roza....
i solovii poyut v lesakh zelyonikh...
...poyut v lesakh.
i saldkii vingrad rostyot.
Tam tebe privolney, pesnya,

ti tuda i uletai

Улетай на крыльях ветра
Ты в край родной, родная песня наша,
Туда, где мы тебя свободно пели,
Где было так привольно нам с тобою.
Там, под знойным небом, негой воздух полон,
Где под говор моря дремлют горы в облаках.
Там так ярко солнце светит,
Родные горы светом заливая,
В долинах пышно розы расцветают,
И соловьи поют в лесах зелёных;
И сладкий виноград растёт.
Там тебе привольней, песня…
Ты туда и улетай!

That's as far as I can go at the moment... out of time. But that gets you through "Ty tuda i uletai!" That should be enough for you to find the right passage in a Russian copy of the libretto, which I assume your university has around somewhere, and count the lines. Windows has cyrillic versions of about all fonts available -- you can hunt and peck in the character map. This aria occurs at the end of Act II, as I'm guessing you know.

One wonders why you need the cyrillic text in your assignment, though. I took dozens of language classes and have degrees in linguistics and in literature, and I was never asked to present anything other than transliterations in English-language papers.

Thank you very much!! It's so hard to type in if you don't know how...

No problem. But why do you need the cyrillic text in an English-language paper?
