Russian

Vmestye Vyesilo Shagat (Вместе весело шагать)

(REF:)
Вместе весело шагать по просторам,
По просторам, по просторам
И, конечно, припевать лучше хором,
Лучше хором, лучше хором.
 
Спой-ка с нами, перепёлка-перепёлочка,
Раз иголка, два иголка будет ёлочка,
Раз дощечка, два дощечка будет лесенка,
Раз словечко, два словечко будет песенка.
 
(REF)
 
В небесах зари полоска заполощется,
Раз берёзка два, берёзка будет рощица,
Раз дощечка, два дощечка будет лесенка,
Раз словечко, два словечко будет песенка.
 
(REF)
 
Нам счастливую тропинку выбрать надобно,
Раз дождинка, два дождинка будет радуга,
Раз дощечка, два дощечка будет лесенка,
Раз словечко, два словечко будет песенка.

English translation

Marching together cheerfully

(REF:)
When marching together cheerfully on open plains
On open plains, on open plains
It's better, that is clear, to sing together
Sing together, sing together
 
Sing along with us, quail, o quail bird (1)
One needle, two needles - make a fir tree
One plank, two planks - make a ladder (2)
One word, two words - make a song
 
(REF)
 
The sky swallows up the strip of twilight
One birch tree, two birch trees - make a grove
One plank, two planks - make a ladder
One word, two words - make a song
 
(REF)
 
It's necessary for us to choose a cheerful path
One raindrop, two raindrops - make a rainbow,
One plank, two planks - make a ladder
One word, two words - make a song
 
(REF)

(1) Quail, small fat birds, known from the biblical story of the exodus, where the israelites requested meat and god sent a large amount of quail to quench their thirst.

(2) not sure if its really a ladder, since this is a hiking song.
Probably more like a walkway or footpath, with planks to walk on.
