Can Anyone Help with a Polish Song about a Doll?

Susann wrote,

Hi everyone,

I’m searching a polish children’s song about a doll named “Susha”. I don’t know if i got that name right, because i don’t speak polish, but it sounds like that.

Someone sang it to me when i was little, because i reminded her of that doll.

It’s just a small song, only four lines i believe. I only know that the first line means something like “Susha, the doll that is not tall”.

It would be really nice if you could write me down the verses, when you recognize the song. Maybe you could even translate it for me ;)

Thank you so much,

Susann

If anyone can help Susann, please comment below.

Thanks!

    Dear Susan,
    the song you ask for is called “Zuzia – lalka nieduża”. http://www.dailymotion.pl/video/x87tq8_zuzia-lalka-nie-dua_music

    Zuzia lalka nieduża
    I na dodatek cała ze szmatek
    W kratkę stara spódniczka
    Łzy na policzkach
    A w główce marzeń sto

    Lecz kocham ją najbardziej
    ze wszystkich moich lal
    Choć nie ma sukni złotej
    Zabiorę ją na bal

    Zuzia lalka nieduża płaszczyk za krótki
    Zbyt duże butki
    Fartuch biały z kieszonką
    w kieszonce słonko
    A w główce marzeń sto

    Lecz kocham ją najbardziej
    ze wszystkich moich lal
    Choć nie ma sukni złotej
    Zabiorę ją na bal.

    Zuzia lalka niewielka
    Bródka malutka
    Nos jak muszelka
    Oczy ma jak pięć złotych
    wełniane loki a w główce marzeń sto.

    In short words it says that Zuzia i a doll not tall, wearing not fine clothes, hair of wool, coat is too short, her skirt is old, shoes are too big, her nose is a shell, big eyes, but in her head she has a thousand dreams. And though she doesn’t wear a dress of gold, I’ll take her to the ball. And though she is not the prettiest, I love her most of all.
