He was our guest. He is a famous gambler,
Adventurer. His name is Ostap Bender.
Time and again, always risking his head,
He sought a dozen chairs, seldom getting ahead.
But never ever did he try to cheat
Or disappoint the Caravan he loved,
Respected; though he did not find,
While sat and dined in our restaurant,
That sought by him the lucky chairs are
So calmly furnished in our Caravan.
