Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Birch Tree (Russian)
Subject: Lyr Req: little birch tree
i sang this song when i was a little girl, but now i seem to be unsure about the words. i would love to get a solid set of lyrics.
i assume it is russian, since it mentions a balalainka. if you know specifics on the origin, i would appreciate that too.

see the little birch in the meadow
loo le loo litle birch tree, loo le loo little birch tree.

see the leaves are dancing when the wind blows
loo lee loo when the wind blows, loo le loo when the wind blows.

take three silver braches from the birch tree
make three silver flutes from silver branches..
loo le loo silver branches, loo le loo silver branches.

take a branch and carve a balienka
loo le loo balalaika, loo le loo balalaika

with my flutes ill play my balalainka
and i'll remember you my little birch tree
loo le loo little birch tree, loo le loo little birch tree.

is that correct?
