Russian Children Songs - Karavai, Karavai (Каравай, Каравай) (English translation)


Karavai, Karavai (Каравай, Каравай)

Дети в хороводе:
Как на Петино рожденье
Испекли мы каравай.
Вот такой вышины,
Вот такой нижины,
Вот такой ужины,
Вот такой ширины.
Каравай, каравай,
Кого любишь (хочешь) выбирай.
Ребенок в центре:
Я люблю, конечно, всех,
Но вот этот/эта лучше всех!

Now for (*insert name*)'s birthday
We inspect the loaf (of bread)
That's how high it is
That's how low it is
That's how wide it is..
This is our dinner!
Karavai, karavai
Pick the one that you love most..
I love, of course, everyone
But (*insert name*) most of all
Translation Mine if no other Translation Source is given. Soon as a "Source" field with a weblink appears below, it is not my translation, but taken from another website.
If you have corrections. i will consider them if they are made in a courteous way, including stanza and line, and what it is that needs to be replaced. If you only type one or two words into the comment box, without giving the location, I will simply ignore it.
Another option is you correct the entire song and paste it so I can in turn copypaste it, which is less work for me. You can also take my translation and make your own translation using mine as a basis.
If you start a fight over commas, apostrophes, grammar, syntax, lower and upper case, english dialects that you don't understand cause your english is just too poor, as it has now happened for the last couple weeks constantly. I promise you soon as you start monkeying around and bossing me around with your comments that I can't delete. I will delete the translation instead. and Keep it on my computer where it belongs.
