    please translate

    Can someone please help me with these phrases?
    I am not sure if I am translating them correctly.

    Я рождена для любви
    I was born for love

    В деле любви я первый проводник.
    Of love affair I first conductor.

    она хотела вот и залетела
    she wanted this and flew

    она хотела вовремя успела
    she wanted on-time had time

    Thanks
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    she wanted this but [your favorite slang expression for 'got pregnant' here]

    Depends on how you understand "conductor". In this song, it means "a railroad conductor" (figuratively, of course)

    залетела = "got in trouble". When "залететь" refers to a female, it most often means that she got pregnant.

    она хотела вовремя успела
    she wanted on-time had time
    "вовремя успела" means that she got what he wanted (or did what she wanted to do) before it was too late.

    Perhaps it's because this Verka Serdyuchka (or the impersonator guy who plays her role) has an image of "railroad-conductor lady".
