They say the watch stopped,
They say the watch is fast,
They say the watch goes (at long last)
But it's slow just a bit. (it's little bit slow)

We looked together with Mishka at it
But it's in the same place, isn't it?
We looked together with Mishka
But the watch is in the same place.

  • Watch stopped - it's not working, idle, broken, doesn't go
  • Watch go - it works, acts
  • Watch in a hurry - they show the wrong time, go faster than should
  • Watch is lagging behind - they show an incorrect time is slower than should


Говорят: часы стоят,
Говорят: часы спешат,
Говорят: часы идут,
Но немножко отстают.

Мы смотрели с Мишкой вместе,
Но часы стоят на месте.

  • Часы стоят - они не работают, бездействуют, сломались, не идут
  • Часы идут - они работают, действуют
  • Часы спешат - они показывают неверное время, идут быстрее чем надо
  • Часы отстают - они показывают неверное время, идут медленнее чем надо
