Roat, nos, ushy, e glaza, e glaza
Ruky, nogy, golova, golova
Sheya, grood, zhivot, kalyeny, e stopny
Ne zabod kock nazyvayetsya ahny.

Comments

"It's technically not 'Head, shoulders, knees and toes', but it's set to the same tune, and is a very good way to memorise some of your body parts in Russian. Also, I found this version easier and more fun to sing." -Bailee
