Anne wrote to us looking for help with a Ukrainian kids song…
“I had some great aunts who were Ukrainian. Every single one of us had a specific song sung to us for years. Unfortunately, we never had them write it down. As I do not write or speak Ukrainian other than this song, I am trying to find out its meaning. I can only write it phonetically…
Yacya Boola Mala Mala
Coo le sala mini mama
Two calipshi two calupshi
Salvia Bay-lay double-la-hupshe
We all still sing it to our babies, yet none of us knows the actual words or what it means… any help would be appreciated.”
If anyone can help with this song please comment below or email me.
Thanks in advance!
