Comments

Here's another English translation by Jana Olejnikova:

Dance, dance, turn around, turn around
Just don't break my oven down, don't break it down,
An oven is good for winter, for winter,
Not everybody has a feather blanket.

Tra-la-la-la, tra-la-la-la
la-la-la-la la-la-la la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la, tra-la-la-la
la-la-la-la la-la-la la-la-la!

A soldier stands on watch, on watch,
In a ragged coat
From evening till morning, till morning
A dew kept falling on him, falling.

Tra-la-la-la, tra-la-la-la
la-la-la-la la-la-la la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la, tra-la-la-la
la-la-la-la la-la-la la-la-la!
