I wonder if anyone can help me find the meaning to this silly rhyme. I was a little kid when my grandmother used to do this thing with my head in her hands and it phonetically sounded like this (I don’t speak or understand Ukrainian) :
Pitchoo Pitchoo bopkoo
shi shoolapitch, shi shoolapitch, shi shoolapitch
Many thanks, Suzy
If someone can also send the Ukrainian text, that would be great! If anyone can help in any way, please comment below, or email me.
