    Translating first 3 seconds of a song

    Hi I was listening to this song earlier and I can understand a lot of it and make out words even if I dont know the meaning of them, but what do they say in the first 3 seconds? Like when they say something really slow and deep?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRHE_W3YFJE

    It sounds like "Собака"

    Anyone help?

    Thanks in advance

    Uh... Yeah собаки. Could be fairly reasonless, hard to tell what it could really mean.
    I checked a slang dictionary and it didn't come up with any sort of meaningful connection to be made.

    By the way, I never heard the word used in any meaning from the slang dictionary.

    Ага, где эта молодёжь с таким слэнгом? Странные слова (исковерканные англицизмы?), странные определения. Я бы забросила этот словарь тинов подальше.

    Хм..

    Там по контексту получается немного не так.
    "Собаки" в начале - скорее, как общая метафора на (остальной текст + заставку-фото). А-ля "вот видите картинку? Таких, как [мы] называют таким-то соловом таким-то тоном...".
    И дальше пошло бла-бла-бла более-менее связными словами.

    Does everybody really hear a word:"собаки"? Because for me it doesn't sound much like that. Perhaps it is :" Song by....". And what is more against a word " собаки" , is that we usually pronounce it like "сAбаки" but in the song it is definitely that I hear " сO"
