    Small toast in english

    I would like a translation in russian :

    To you, my friends,
    May you live a thousand years
    To me,
    May I live a thousand years minus one day,
    What would be life without you?



    Thank you !

    To you, my friends,
    May you live a thousand years
    To me,
    May I live a thousand years minus one day,
    What would be life without you?

    I'd said it that way:

    За вас, друзья мои,
    Живите и здравствуйте много лет/тысячу лет/долгие годы
    И за меня,
    Пусть я проживу на один день меньше (вас),
    Ведь, что моя жизнь без вас!

    But here is the exact form:

    За вас, мои друзья,
    Живите тысячу лет!
    За меня,
    Пусть я проживу тысячу лет без одного дня,
    Ведь что это будет за жизнь без вас!
    Я так думаю.

    Yankeez, Leof is a Russian native speaker and his variants are correct, but yours are not.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.
