Here's what I got, but my Russian is very elementary (and I humbly apologize to any person who falls down laughing at my translation).

нее нее нее ---- hee hee hee
Душа кошкина -- soul of (koshkina)
а я шикарная --- while I elegant
Мадам Брошкина - Madam Broshkina
она такая ---- it such
Никакая ---- None
никакая ---- None
Ну что ты в ней - Well that you in it
нашел ---- found

I took Russian in college centuries ago but I could do little better. I do know that the н in нее is pronounced as an N in English and I don't think нее нее нее is hee hee hee - more probably it, it, it. Of course, that makes the translation crystal clear, don't you think? нует!

My favorite and most useful Russian phrase is Я не знаю. My professor usually gave me an exasperated look when I answered his questions that way.

(That's "I don't know" for the non-Russian speakers.)

And I am magnificient Madam Broshkina
Она такая никакая никакая
Ona takaya nikakaya nikakaya

She's such a nothing, nothing
Ну что ты в ней нашёл?
Nu chto ty v ney nashol?

What ever did you find in her?

P.S. So where is your nickname from? I have some vague impression of seeing a "madam Broshkina" in some book we had to read in school, but cannot for the life of me recall the title or even the author.

thank you igorsk ! so that mystery is solved at last and we can fully appreciate the lyrical brilliance accompanying the fine animation of the video. it turns out it's a timeless, universal story, as we might have guessed from the animation. i'm sure we've all lived that before.

I used to go with a girl from Uzbekistan (I am a guy by the way) and one of her favorite singers is Alla Pugacheva who sings "Madam Broshkina." I always liked the song and thought it would make a good screen name.
