Many years ago, I bought a 10" album at a rummage sale, largely because nearly all of the writing on the label was in Russian. There was no cover, and the album was beat to hell, but it turned out to feature a bunch of children singing a variety of styles of songs.
Only one of the songs really resonated with me, but that one song became an immediate favorite, and I love it to this day. I love the sound of kids singing, and the lead singer's voice on this track is so infectious as to be completely irresistable to me.
Long ago, I asked the one friend who had a relative who understood Russian to translate it for me, but the best she could do was offer a rough summary of some of the lyrics, telling me that it was a song welcoming Spring, and singing about the activities that take place during Spring.
My daughter recently became friends with a young woman who arrived from Russia within the last two years, and I gave her a CD of the song, but both she and her mother stated that the song is in some "old-fashioned" version of the Russian language that neither of them understand (which strikes me as quite odd, as this record cannot be more than 45 years old).
I'm posting this here not only to share my beloved record with others who may also find it quite wonderful, but also in the hopes that some kind soul will be both willing and able to offer a translation of all of the lyrics to this song.
