Song: Verka Serduchka – Pirozhok

with No Comments

Here’s a cheerful little song from Верка Сердучка, Ukraine’s most outlandish cross-dressing artist. The song is called пирожок and tells of a woman’s mighty quest to find a tasty pirozhok :p

На сколько я знаю (as far as I know) it’s not a major hit but it’s great for us learners: repetitive and quite easy to understand.

 

Я тихо шла, шла, шла

Пирожок нашла.

Я села, поела,

Опять пошла…

Я тихо шла… Я шла.

Я пирожок нашла.

Я села, поела,

Опять пошла. Я тихо шла…

Я тихо шла, шла, шла

Ничего не нашла.

Ни села, ни поела

Но дальше пошла…

Я тихо шла… Я шла.

Я ничего не нашла.

Ни села, ни поела.

Но дальше пошла. Я тихо шла…

Я завтра пойду

Что-нибудь найду.

Сяду, поем

И дальше пойду…

Надо идти.

Что-нибудь найти.

Что бы сесть, поесть

И дальше пойти…

И я пойду… Я пойду.

Я что-нибудь найду.

Я сяду, поем

И дальше пойду. Да, я пойду…

Я тихо шла.

Я тихо шла.

Я шла.

О, как я шла.

А с кем я шла?!…

 

I was going, going, going quietly along

I found a pirozhok.

I sat down, I ate

And started going again…

I was going quietly along… going along.

I found a pirozhok.

I sat down, I ate,

And started going again. Going quietly along…

I was going, going, going quietly along

I didn’t find anything.

I didn’t sit down, didn’t eat

But I kept on going.

I was going quietly along… going along.

I didn’t find anything.

I didn’t sit down, didn’t eat.

But I kept on going… quietly going along…

I’ll go tomorrow

I’ll find something.

I’ll sit down, I’ll eat

and I’ll keep on going…

I have to go

Find something

In order to sit down, to eat

And keep on going…

And I’ll go… I’ll go.

I’ll find something.

I’ll set down, I’ll eat

And I’ll keep going. Yes, I’ll keep going…

I was going quietly along.

I was going quietly along.

I was going along.

Ah, how I was going!

Oh, who was I going with?!…
