Grass by the Home (Russian: Трава у дома, Trava u doma) is a 1983 song by former Soviet and Russian music group Zemlyane. The lyrics were written by Anatoly Poperechny and music by Vladimir Migulya. The song tells about cosmonauts in the space longing for Earth, their homes and grass near it. In 2009, the Russian Federal Space Agency named "Grass by the Home" the official anthem of Russian cosmonauts.[1]

The song was the finalist of the 1983 edition of Song of the Year.[2] In 1984, it was used in the 14th episode of Well, Just You Wait! (Nu, pogodi).
