Lullaby lyrics
« on: October 22, 2015, 02:53:20 AM »
Hello. :)

Can you please translate for me these two lyrics from a Russian lullaby?  It's part of a song from the movie "John Wick".

Thank you.

Hi,

I couldn't understand the first audio, but the second one says: they left you to fall asleep.

Thank you. :)

Would a higher quality MP3 help for the first line?

Hi,

I'm sorry, but the second mp3 says: "fall asleep soon". As for the first one, it would help if you could send the whole lullaby instead of just snatched out phrases.

Thank you.

I've uploaded a higher quality MP3 of the entire song here: http://www.mediafire.com/listen/3ab137h9bru59u4/lullaby.mp3

With your help and Google I think I've figured out a rough translation for many of the lyrics, but some still elude me:

Баю-баюшки-баю (Hush, little one, sleep.)
Не ложися на краю (Don't lie close to the bed edge.)
Баю-баюшки-баю (Hush, little one, sleep.)
? (?)
Баю-баюшки-баю (Hush, little one, sleep.)
? (? - This seems to be the same line as the previous unknown one)
Баю-баюшки бай бай (Hush, little one, bye-bye.)
? (Fall asleep soon. -or is it- They left you to fall asleep.)

I've tried to read through the lyrics posted to YouTube, but I don't see any that match the lines I'm missing.  The singer doesn't seem to mention wolves, for example.

Yes, you are right, I couldn't recognize about the wolf.

And it's "Fall asleep soon".

Following up on this; I asked on another Russian language forum, and here's what they translated it as:

баю баюшки баю
не ложися на краю (Don't lie close to the bed edge.)
баю баюшки баю
волки воют на луну (Wolves howl at the moon.)

баю баюшки баю
волки воют на луну (Wolves howl at the moon.)
баю баюшки бай-бай
поскорее засыпай (Hurry to fall asleep.)

So it seems there is a mention of wolves in the lyrics after all.

Thank you again for your help. :)
