I recently received this email:
My mom who was an orphan remembers her dad (from Ukraine) singing a song that sounds like “estonya monya ti la zuka; estonya monya lo bi…” can anyone relate?
If anyone can help with this song, please comment below, or email me.

As a native speaker of Ukrainian and Russian, I’m at a loss to identify this song. Even with an allowance for distortion, the etymology is neither Ukrainian nor Russian.

It’s Ukraine, not THE Ukraine. The Ukrainian is a very bad racist name.
