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
The heaven for height, and the earth for depth,
and the heart of kings is unsearchable. (Prov 25:3 KJV)
