Yael wrote asking for help with song songs. Here’s her letter:
I was so excited when I came across your website – how wonderful it is!
I was hoping to find out the lyrics of two songs my grandmother used to sing to me, which I think are in Czech or Slovak. Here is what I remember, written phonetically, and apologies in advance for getting the words very wrong!
Song 1: I think this was about a hunter?
Afte nashe studye nechke
Viva vel kimra
Seker rechku breru bemtu
Song 2: I think this one was about the sea?
Odunan osi ke chomlik
(name of child) felo kortalik
(name of child) lechuso
Hulary, hulary, hoy
Thank you so much!
Yael from Houston.
If anyone can help Yael with the original lyrics and/or a translation, please comment below.
Thanks in advance!
