Мечка се жени
The Bear's Wedding
Children's Song
(Bulgarian)
Children's Song
(English)

Думба –лумба, шикалка
Има сватба никаква
Слънце грее, дъжд вали
Мечка се жени.

Hey-ho, gobbledygook,
Is there a wedding? Look-
The sun is shining.
Still, it's raining.
The bear is getting married.

Notes

Literal Translation:

Dumba-lumba*, a gall**,
Is there a wedding at all?
The sun is shining
While it's raining.
The bear is getting married.

*'Dumba-lumba' is something like "Hey-ho".
**A gall apart from its literal meaning, means 'nonsense'.
