Russian Children Songs - Uzhasna Interesna (Ужасно интересно ) (English translation)


Uzhasna Interesna (Ужасно интересно )

На свете много есть того, во, во,
Про что не знают ничего, во, во,
Ни взрослые, ни дети.
Конечно, ни взрослые, ни дети!
И это вовсе не секрет, рет, рет,
Когда секрета вовсе нет, нет, нет,
Скучают все на свете.
Но почему? Да потому, что!..
Ужасно интересно
Все то, что неизвестно!
Ужасно неизвестно,
Все то, что интересно!
Решил свой рост узнать удав, дав, дав,
И в этом он конечно прав, прав, прав,
И это важно очень!
Конечно, и это важно очень!
Быть может, он длиннее всех, всех, всех,
Во много раз длинне всех, всех, всех,
А можеть быть короче.
Но почему? Да потому, что!..
Вот голова, вот он хвост, хвост, хвост!
А остальное - это рост, рост, рост,
В удаве много роста.
Конечно, в удаве много роста.
Но как измерить этот рост, рост, рост?
Не знают голова и хвост хвост, хвост.
Узнать свой рост не просто.
Но почему? Да потому, что!..
Водой кончается земля, ля, ля,
И есть начало у ручья, чья, чья,
Весной начнется лето.
Конечно, весной начнется лето!
А где начаться должен я, я, я?
И где кончаться должен я, я, я?
Не знаю я про это.
Но почему, Да потому, что!..

Terribly interesting

Many things are in this world
That we don't know anything about
Neither adults nor children
For sure, neither adults nor children
And that, after all, is not a secret
When there's no secret at all
The whole world lies in boredom
Well, why ? Well, because !
Terribly interesting
Is all that is unknown
Terribly unknown
Is everything that's interesting
The boa decided to learn its growth (1)
And of course it's right about that
And that's very important
And that, of course, is very important
Maybe, it is the longest of all
Many times longer than all
Or maybe shorter
Well, why ? Well, because !
Here is the head, here is its tail
And everything else is just - growth
And the boa grows so much
Of course, the boa grows so much
But how to measure this growth ?
Neither head nor tail do know..
To learn your growth is not easy..
Well, why ? Well, because !
The Waters finally run into the earth
And that's where the creeks spring from
And spring gives birth to summer
Of course, spring gives way to summer..
And where should I start ?
Yes where should I start ?
I don't know about that..
Well, why ? Well, because !
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.
