Finnish Children Songs - Pilvi pieni pehmoinen (English translation)

Finnish

Pilvi pieni pehmoinen

Pilvi pieni pehmoinen, pimpeli pompeli pom
heitti lumihiutaleen, pimpeli pompeli pom
alas maahan lähtemään
aivan aivan yksinään
pitkä matka maahan on, pimpeli pompeli pom
 
Kuusen oksaan koetti, pimpeli pompeli pom
tarttua se tiukasti, pimpeli pompeli pom
Vaan ei pääty matka, ei,
tuuli eteenpäin sen vei.
Pitkä matka maahan on, pimpeli pompeli pom.
 
Nallen nöpökuonolle, pimpeli pompeli pom
viimein putos hiutale, pimpeli pompeli pom.
"Hyvä täs on olla niin,
aivan sulan kyyneliin."
Niin suli hiutale, pimpeli pompeli pom.

A Soft Little Cloud

A soft little cloud (ding ding dong ding dong)
Threw down a snowflake (ding ding dong ding dong)
To float down to earth alone
All alone
It's a long way down to earth (ding ding dong ding dong)
 
A spruce branch (ding ding dong ding dong)
It tried to firmly grasp (ding ding dong ding dong)
But its journey did not end, no
The wind carried it onwards
It's a long way down to earth (ding ding dong ding dong)
 
Onto Teddy's little snout (ding ding dong ding dong)
The snow flake finally fell (ding ding dong ding dong)
"I'm so glad to be here,
I'm going to melt into tears of joy."
And so melted the snowflake (ding ding dong ding dong)
