Баю-баюшки [Baju-bajushki]
(Bayu-bayushki bayu)

Russian lullaby

Bayu-bayushki bayu
My darling, lulay

As your nursemaids I took
The wind, sun and the eagle

The eagle flew home
The sun went under the mountain

After three nights, the wind
Returned to his mother

She asked the wind
Where did you care to be lost?

Did you chase the waves on the sea
Or count golden stars?

I didn't chase the waves
Or count golden stars

I lulayed the tiny children
Baju-bajushki, baju
Maju m’iluju lju-lju

Vnjan’k’i ja k s’ib’e-v z’ala
V’etra, solntsa i arla

Ul’it’el arjol damoj
Solnts’e skrylas’ pad garoj

Posl’i v’et’ir trjox nach’ej
V’ernuls’a-k matushk’e svajej

V’etra sprashivala mat’
Gd’e izvol’il prapadat’

Volny na mar’e gan’al
Zalaty sv’ozdy sh’ital

Ja na mor’e voln n’e gan’al
Zalatyx zv’ozd n’e sh’ital

Malyx d’etoch’ek uljuljuk’ival
