На улице дождик
С ведра поливает,
С ведра поливает,
Землю прибивает.
Землю прибивает,
Брат сестру качает.

Брат сестру качает,
Ещё величает:
"Сестрица родная,
Расти поскорее,
Расти поскорее,
Да будь поумнее!

Вырастешь большая,
Отдадут тя замуж,
Отдадут тя замуж.
Отдадут тя замуж
Во чужу деревню,
В семью несогласну".

На улице дождик
С ведра поливает,
С ведра поливает,
Землю прибивает.
Землю прибивает,
Брат сестру качает.

transcription

It's raining outside,
It's pouring rain,
It's pouring rain,
The ground is flooded with water.
The ground is flooded with water,
The brother lulls his sister.

The brother lulls his sister
And sings to her:
"My little sister,
Grow up faster,
Grow up faster,
But be wise!

When you become an adult
You'll be given in marriage,
You'll be given in marriage.
You'll be given in marriage,
You'll go away to another village,
You'll enter an uncompromising family".

It's raining outside,
It's pouring rain,
It's pouring rain,
The ground is flooded with water.
The ground is flooded with water,
The brother lulls his sister.
