I would also love lyrics to this piece by Shaporin, from his renowned opera called the "Decembrists"

I finally got into Volkslieder and got it translated; neither of your requests are there. Sorry. Found lots of CDs

I have an LP on which the Soviet Army Chorus sings it, but my Russian is too poor for me to extract any words. I'll be happy to send you a tape in case you want to try.

I found this thread while searching for these lyrics, a mere 15 years later. In the comments of a Russian-language YouTube posting of the song, I also found the lyrics, which I am pasting here, if anyone is still interested, along with my minor (and fallible) revisions to Google's (at least equally fallible) translation. But I have not yet been able to find the re-written lyrics from the musically identical "Sailors' Chorus" from the 1965 film "The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming!" If anyone can direct me to those, please do.

"Soldiers' Chorus" from the opera "Decembrists"
Хор солдат из оперы "Декабристы"
(Khor soldat iz opery "Dekabristy")
by Yuri Shaporin


За Дунаем, За Дунаем
За Дунаем, за рекой
Шли походом, шли походом
На Турецкие войска!
Эй! Во садочке,
Во зелёном, в саду!
Всё тоскует, всё тоскует,
Раскрасавица жена.

За Дунаем, За Дунаем
За Дунаем, за рекой
Сабли востры, сабли востры,
Сабли вострые блестят.
Эй! Покатилось
Вани буйна голова!
Как узнала, зарыдала
Раскрасавица жена.

Ребятушки! Стойте крепко!
За правду народную! 
________________________
Za Dunayem, Za Dunayem
Za Dunayem, za rekoy
Shli pokhodom, shli pokhodom
Na Turetskiye voyska!
Ey! Vo sadochke,
Vo zelonom, v sadu!
Vso toskuyet, vso toskuyet,
Raskrasavitsa zhena.

Za Dunayem, Za Dunayem
Za Dunayem, za rekoy
Sabli vostry, sabli vostry,
Sabli vostryye blestyat.
Ey! Pokatilos'
Vani buyna golova!
Kak uznala, zarydala
Raskrasavitsa zhena.

Rebyatushki! Stoyte krepko!
Za pravdu narodnuyu!

Beyond the Danube, beyond the Danube
Beyond the Danube, beyond the river
We hiked on foot, marching
On the Turkish troops!
Hey! In the saddle,
In the green, in the garden!
Everyone yearning, each one yearning,
for his beautiful wife.

Beyond the Danube, beyond the Danube
Beyond the Danube, beyond the river
The sabers of the hills, the sabers of the hills,
The swords shine brightly.
Hey! Charging down the hill
Vanya leading the storm!
How did she know, sobbing,
His beautiful wife.

Children! Hold fast!
For the truth of the people!
